Released today, Photo Story 3 is a little goodie from Microsoft free to XP users, allowing you to create your own photo story slideshow thingies. Paul Thurrot will tell you what it’s all about here and you can download it right now from the Microsoft website. I’ve tried it myself – it’s basically Windows Movie Maker for photos.
One extra thing though – pirates need not apply. You need to validate your copy of XP (yes – again!) before you can download. Sorry!
Update – I’ve used it a bit more, and it’s really well designed for the job. I can see myself using this where in the past I would have used Movie Maker and got worse results. Thanks Microsoft!
