New features in Photo Story 3 include photo editing features, more special effects, advanced panning and zooming capabilities, and more options for saving and sharing your photo stories.
I was impressed with the "SE" version of Photo Story that came with Microsoft Digital Image Suite when I reviewed it last year, so it is exciting to see a more feature-full version being offered as a free download. I plan to check it out over the coming weekend.
Here is what Paul Thurrot says about it in his SuperSite for Windows:
Photo Story 3 is an almost perfect tool for digital photography enthusiasts and a must-have utility for anyone who enjoys their own digital photographs. The effects generated by this application are both stunning and compelling, and very similar to the photo slideshow capabilities that Media Center users enjoy... If you're an XP user, you simply must download Photo Story 3 today and get busy creating your own stories. [Paul Thurrott's Review of Photo Story 3]
