CDROM Album Software?

I have FlipAlbum from 2-3 years ago. Are there better alternatives now?

I will be using this on a PC to make an album of digital camera pics, no video.

After visiting adobe, it looks like you can create a slideshow with it. I think I'm more interested in creating an album that gives the user more control when to go to the next photo.

I have used FlipAlbum, which creates a 'album' with pages that the user can turn. I was wondering if FlipAlbum is still considered the leader in the sort of thing, or is there somethig better out there?

I have to admit to not using that aspect of Photoshop Album much, but it gets more flexible:
- You can create an Adobe Atmosphere gallery which allows you to change photos, though they won't exactly "flip" I don't think.
- You can also create a PDF-based slideshow, which the user can certainly flip the pages of. This is the feature you read about.
- You could create a web gallery, which creates the HTML and necessary pieces to make a photo gallery to upload to a web site. Rather than uploading to a web site, though, just copy to the CD; all the user would need is a web browser.
- You could create a VCD or DVD with the photos, too.

You could try the Starter Edition, though it's Create functionality is severely limited and won't show you what all you can do with the full version.

Has anyone used 3d-Album from Micro Research? I visited their web-site and it looks interesting.
