Microsoft Photo Story lets you create slideshows using your digital photos very easily. The application is basic but it will allow you to undertake simple editing techniques such as touch-up, crop, or rotate pictures. You can add some special effects, soundtracks, and also your own voice narration to your photo stories.

Once you have edited your work then you can personalize the image story with titles and captions. The output variation is limited, but it will provide relatively small file sizes that make it easy to send your photo stories in an e-mail.

Key features include:

  • Capture memories: Create slideshows using your digital photos. With a single click, you can touch-up, crop, or rotate pictures. It's that easy!
  • Bring photos to life: Add stunning special effects, soundtracks, and your own voice narration to your photo stories. Then, personalize them with titles and captions.
  • Share your stories:Small file sizes make it easy to send your photo stories in an e-mail. Watch them on your TV, a computer, or a Windows Mobile–based portable device.

Overall, Microsoft Photo Story is a very basic image application that can undertake a number of small editing techniques and has a few different features for the novice user. That being said, the interface is based on a standard explorer frame, and if all you need is basic functionality, then Microsoft Photo Story would be great for your needs. You cannot, however, burn your work to DVD. Which is quite disappointing.
