If you have a SlideShowPro account you got an email today announcing that SlideShowPro is shutting down. Several readers asked today what they can use as an alternative.
The SlideshowPro site explains that their closure is a result of the fact that the majority of their products were Flash based and the Internet has evolved beyond Flash, mainly as a result of mobile devices that do not support Flash.
What are your alternatives if you've been using SlideShowPro?
- Of course, there's always the alternative of not developing your own custom slideshows/tours. For $12 a tour (when you purchase 10 at a time) you can use Tourbuzz.net.
- One alternative to SlideShowPro is JuiceBox. Very similar functionality, one-time purchase of $45 or $95 depending on how many domain you want to use it on. I've used it and it's easy to use.
- Christian in Ontario suggests the free lightbox plugin for WordPress. With this alternative you have to be up to running your own WordPress site... not a big deal but more than most real estate photographers want to do.
Anyone else have any other favorite SlideShowPro alternatives?
