ArtSage Editor's Review

PC users often need to make use of third party applications for making slideshows. While Windows inbuilt utility for viewing images and running slideshows keeps getting better with time, for many users third party apps seem better option. If you want a small and nifty slideshow app without paying anything, ArtSage may be the right solution. It lets you create slideshows from images you like.

ArtSage is freeware and comes as a small executable file. It does not come with any installer. It supports Windows XP and later versions. The executable can be downloaded in zip format.

You can save it in the hard disk or even run it from a USB stick. The app can work with images in formats like BMP, PNG and JPG. This makes it ideal for users who are paranoid about security. When you run it no entry is made in Windows registry.

At first, you have to select the folder containing the images with which you have to make the slideshow. As the slideshow runs, you can right click on the image to open the context menu and pick the options. It is possible to set a timer. The images can be manipulated in a number of ways for the slideshow. There is a wide range of transition to choose from, too. You can also opt for full screen mode and zoom or shrink the images.

The app does not put any strain on system while running and you can run it on older PCs without any issue. There is no option to use sound tracks at background though. A help file is also bundled in.

Positive Points:
•    No Installer, minimal UI.
•    Comes with plenty of slideshow options.
•    Supports major image formats.

Negative Points:
•    No sound playback.

ArtSage is a minimalistic but capable slideshow app that can be used by nearly any PC user. It is a portable app and eliminates need of any installation. It creates slideshows on the fly and you get some customization options too. Features like sound playback is missing but you are getting enough from a freeware app, as it is.

Rating: 3/5
