Phota provides comprehensive tools for archiving and annotating your images into attractive,
interactive photo albums. It is an ideal application for people with digital cameras, who wish to
immediately enjoy their uploaded photos, without spending alot of time and effort in creating and
formatting albums. Images can be added very quickly with a Mass Load feature, optionally from
IPTC and/or EXIF image data. A versatile Page Designer screen contains intuitive controls for
building and formatting album pages. Audio and video sequences can also be incorporated into
albums. A handy Photo Index provides a quick scan through all of the photos in an album, with
options to display thumbnail or full-screen images, show photo descriptive information or skip to
a selected page. Photo Search can be used to find all photos containing a particular string of
text within their descriptions. Album pages or individual photos can be viewed as a slide show,
with various options.

The Gallery feature transforms the display into 3D perspectives, with album photos exhibited
along the walls of Gallery rooms, constructed in various styles. Explore can be activated to
automatically stroll through Galleries, pausing to admire each photo in turn.

A screensaver version of Phota is also included. A sample album, with a small collection of
images, is included to illustrate some the page layout and display features of Phota.
