I have Hungarian Windows with hungarian regional and language settings. If I use other language settings under Windows (ex.: hungarian) and no english (United States), then bug will come, I cannot add any photo to any layouts.

If set regional and language settings to english (United States) program will working correctly.

Check it!

I nabbed it & am trying it out now. The images you put into the flipbook turn out blurry. Also there is no way of resizing them. Yes I can scale them, but only bigger, not to the actual size. Which is a pain because I'm putting my paintings in there and they're now cropped :(

Text is very cumbersome and doesn't remember the previous settings so all my paintings on one page the text has to be changed one by one. Text resized is also a pain because the bounding box changes it to a different size, sometimes bigger when you pull it smaller.

Frames are childish, layouts are ok but there is always a boundary and a photo rotated within that boundary looks silly. Photos should float.

1 dollar short of 100 is ridiculous for such a basic program. It needs work. However, I am having fun with it and hopefully this'll work when I publish.

My sincerest apologies! I didn't mean to imply that you are a "spammer," although upon looking back I can understand how you might interpret my comment as being directed exclusively at you - I simply wanted to make you aware of the "Strictly Personal Usage" policy, which you have since acknowledged, and it was prompted by your mention of the possibility of using the software for commercial purposes. My comment regarding "spammers" was not specifically directed at you, but rather to the world in general - more or less a commentary on the "state of the art" (or should I say, the lack thereof) of online marketing.

In fact, I wholeheartedly agree with your statements! I can see no reason why one couldn't use this software to create "flip books" for a wide variety of commercial purposes, including product catalogs, marketing plans, organizational flowcharts, etc - either for sale or simply as "giveaway" promotional pieces. The software is, after all, merely a tool, to be used in the creation of content, and I don't believe a software manufacturer could realistically prohibit a user of their software from using it for a specific purpose (whether it's "for profit" or not) any more than Microsoft could legally dictate the type of content contained in documents created using MS Word or MS Publisher.

I believe that if you create something of value, you should have the right to sell it to someone else, as long as you remain in compliance with all laws and regulations applicable to the sale of that type of product or service.

Once again, please accept my personal and public apology for not being clearer in my earlier writing - which is a cardinal sin when it comes to marketing! I generally pride myself on my ability to communicate clearly, but in this instance I definitely fell far short of my typical standards.

An olive branch of peace is offered, in the sincere hope that you'll accept it...

@Angela, #37: I must have overlooked your comment initially, but I'm glad I see your comment now. If this is true (and why not) then you're very much right.

Still I cannot use any other layout then the first one, but I guess this must be something due to some sort of setting, software version, configuration or whatever. Not something I can fix at the moment regretably.

The fact that there are no others (comment) having this problem, makes it very probable it is something on my pc indeed.

Thanks again. @mike: sleep well.

Downloaded and registered without problems on Win 7 x 64_SP1. I have no trouble dragging photos to any of the templates. I haven't used the full page template yet, just because its too boring, but love all the various templates. Can insert music on the publish page as mentioned by someone else. If I left click, then right click on a picture, a transparent edit box appears that lets me move the photo around to best fit the template window, or the way I want it. Can also increase or decrease the size of the picture and turn the photos to any degree and or flip them. Thats as far as Ive gotten while playing with this program. Limited, but fun.

Usually when I like a GOTD creative/art program, I go right to the developer's page to buy the Pro version, but at $299.00, its never going to happen. That Pro version does everything we all are requesting, from the get go!
Thanks for this program.

Having installed and used this, I'm impressed. I have no idea why some people are having problems, I installed on Win7x64, but I don't change my Windows default screen DPI, font size, etc.

There are at least a couple of places for quality, check your settings and options when creating your project and check the settings and options for Flash. I even printed full letter size color pages and they looked very good.

All standard Windows multi-select options worked fine (for people like me who use a single-click UI, one must be aware of Windows workarounds). In general, it doesn't make sense for a program like this to just take all of the pictures and generate a result automatically. The individual photo drag-and-drop is so that you can layout your flipbook like you want.

You can drag photos in their frames, just double-click first. The pop-up controls can be dragged out of the way. I didn't have any problems with control text legibility.

Between the template selections (and optional stuff like frames which I'm not that impressed with) and the Flash templates and settings, there's a great deal of flexibility. Clearly, as is so often the case, many people posted without actually having explored and used the product.

As for Mamutu, I wouldn't even consider it, I have much more sophisticated security software. I use my security software in Advanced mode, so I get prompts, but nothing bad for FlipBook. People are completely clueless as to whether they have conflicts, that's difficult to determine and conflicts when using multiple realtime security scanners are likely. I provided a link to a site which tests security software, many people were proclaiming how great their products were when testing showed most of the big-name security apps (free and commercial) to be junk.

When clearing photos from the list, FlipBook appeared to incorrectly reserve the list space used, so newly added photos were after blank areas.

ALF, check whether your FlipBook shows as registered. On Win7x64, some of the registration data gets virtualized, I have no idea what people are doing when installing, I've addressed the topic numerous times (why GOTD doesn't have a direct link on every giveaway to installation procedures and issues is beyond me).

I was really excited to try this product out, but after downloading and unzipping the folder I clicked on the "setup" icon and was told that the activation key could not be encrypted. I tried to set up the program again several times, but each time I get the same thing. So unfortunately I can't use it.

Less Book and more Flipping...I mean that the Page should fit the Photos rather than trying to get a finished photo to fit into a box.
There is no apparent way of displaying panoramic images and the available templates do not have landscape format and are very limiting.
It would be more useful if you could load a set of photos and then arrange them within Flipping Book.

Great! Just when i needed something like this.

@mike, #36 "I didn’t see that at all."
This means, you just discovered after reading, or you're still not aware of this?

I can easily show you, just try following ...

1. open a new project and create a page
2. import your pictures.
3 select a layout template with the layout button, but be sure to choose anything but the first template for one picture. Choose a layout with division(s).
4. now try to drag a picture from the imported pictures on the right to your page with layout.
You see, not possible. Only the undivided layout template works while dragging a picture to it.

I bet you just quickly tried the first layout, I can understand that.
So only one layout works, all others are inactive. You can select them, but cannot drag any picture to it.

And if you can drag pictures to divided layouts with more then one picture, please let me know. In that case something is going wrong here but I doubt that very much.

I'm looking forward to your respons.

No problems setting it up, ran first time - took about ten seconds to comprehend what to do, then realised that it wasn't the operation or the features, but the finished product that was the problem!

All the photos are "fuzzy" so there is something wrong with the compression!

The program seems to work correctly on 32 bit Windows 7, but not on 64 bit. The frame selections in the 64 bit version do not show the menu options at the bottom to get to the other frame choices. I also experienced a problem with Norton deleting the exe file created by the program when I tried to execute the exe file. It is a nice flip-book program. I do like that I can put multiple pictures on the same page. None of the other flip-book programs I have tried have included that option.

Thought I give this a try after looking at their demo, but no way this is useful, when you have to pre-select the photos for each project. You can't just add a folder and automatically have access to those photos, you have actually select each photo unless I missed something. Very silly.

Layouts is unusable. :-( I can use only one picture on one page only. Any layouts will not show any pictures. :-(

Here are a few screen shots of the Program.

1. Screen shot of the First Picture Flip Book I made in 3 Minutes.

First Quick Flip Book

2. Here is another quick Book with a Different Template Selection

Different Template

Is MY Computer the only one that seems to work with the Software downloads Given? I have had no problems with the Software. Nothing from Mamutu yesterdays download when I start the Standalone Exe Files that Photo Flip Book Creates.

Again the only Limit and use of this software is your Imagination and because I like to look at things as my Cup half Full not half Empty mabey thats why I can see the potential in todays Download.

Anyways Thanks again from both parties!

Mamutu has also given me 2 warnings. One when first starting the program warning me that flipimage.exe is trying to directly access my hard drive. This happened on my desktop ( Win7 64bit ) but not on my laptop also ( Win7 64bit ). The other warning I got was when I proceeded to the publish page and tried to edit the flipbook.com text in the upper left corner. Unfortunately I can't remember what the warning was and I was just on my way to work so I didn't have a chance to examine it closely.

#10: "Mamutu has not given me any warnings neither has Microsoft Security Essentials"

I can second that.

* * *

#16: "... Page turn animation and overall effect is just not of the same quality of other similar programs out there."

FWIW I found the flip books created had a higher CPU/resource draw than others we've seen on GOTD -- quality looked poor to questionable on 1 VM, not bad on a 2nd, & nice in my regular win7 64.

* * *

#22: "Now I just wish I knew what I had to do to put this onto my website! "

Very Generally you'd take the code from the generated HTML page & insert what you need on a page for your site. Or you could just upload it as is. Check with your web hosting company's docs etc. for specifics on how to upload, where to put files on their server etc.

* * *

#25: "... can’t add sound for example..."
#27: "Where are options for adding sound?"

In the Publish window, a little more than 1/2 way down the settings on the left side: "Enable Sound", Sound File", & Sound Loops".

* * *

#29: "... there isn’t a way to close the flipbook when finished and return to the previous page. Or am I missing something."

Using the Publish window there are all sorts of options, like including the menu bar in your finished project... using all defaults the results can flip pages automatically, or manually in both directions, & there are 1st page/last page buttons.

* * *

#30: "But if you launch the program and exit using the pulldown menu ->File->Quit.
I get a “Access violation at address 004C5270 in module "flipimage.exe”. Read of address 00000000.”
But if I launch the program and exit using the X button, I get no error. Please solve it. Thanks."

Same with win7 32 SP1... I just realized how seldom I use anything but the X -- never occurred to me to try the menu route.

* * *

#32: "... This is due to the fact that only one layout works, all others are inactive."

?... I didn't see that at all.

After looking at DVD Slideshow, it appears to be comparing apples to Oranges. Yes, DVD slideshow has some cool features, but you can only burn your production to a DVD. Today's offering, photo to flipbook, is more versatile in that you can also export your creation to html or exe files which makes it more useful to many of us. Thanks GOTD and Flip Page Maker for the opportunity to try something different that has some hard-to-find functions that will be useful to many of us.

I have Win7 64. It installed fine and I made a 6 page flip book. It will only let me save it as a .pcp file, whatever that is! I have no program that will open it. I clicked on Help in the menu but nothing happens. I'll be uninstalling.

...There's something wrong there, because I've tested it with the various layouts (admitedly, not all 19 layouts yet), and it works perfectly. Certainly not just with the 1 photo per page layout!

This isn't DVD Slideshow software! I use DVD Slideshow software, too and this is a different animal altogether. You are comparing apples and oranges!

We've more recently seen flip book creation apps that were easier to use, but I think today's Photo to FlipBook is a more flexible, closer to biz use alternative. What I think it needs is a way to save project-wide templates, &/or base new pages on the 1st page you created, so you don't have to set up each page from scratch, making it more work to use. OTOH because each page can be different, because each page is handled individually, you have the sort of flexibility you need to create a flip book that looks like you were serious, that makes you look more like a pro & less like someone working out of their bedroom. Something else to like, you can import & use your own [higher quality] artwork for things like page frames. On the downside, like the other GOTD flip book makers we've seen, you're not creating a self-contained Flash file -- images are stored separately, with the Flash file you're given being just a viewer. Photo to FlipBook will however let you create a stand-alone, fully self-contained *.exe file [that Flash viewer bundled with your page images & the stand-alone Flash Player].

TO use Photo to FlipBook you 1st import your images -- you can't select/import a folder, but you can select & import every image in it -- then drag those images from the viewer pane, placing them on the page where you want. If you click an image you'll get a pop-up to set the Scale, Angle, Opacity, & Flip the image -- your images may be cropped to completely fill the frame on the page -- & it would be nice to be able to drag the photos within that frame rather than only having them centered. You can add full page frames, selecting from those included, or browse to another folder -- the "Settings" button lets you set frame width, color, & opacity. Photo to FlipBook does let you add text, with or without one of the 9 included call-outs or frames, but those frames might best be added separately so you can drag the text to place it where you want it inside that frame. Working with, setting up a page, there are two things that I grew to hate -- there's no Undo [so Save-As frequently], & whomever thought it was a good idea to have transparent dialog windows with white text couldn't have been more wrong... it might pay to have a solid color image you can drag onto a page, make any settings, & then put in the image you wanted. Once you get your pages the way you want them, clicking the "Publish" button brings up a new program window that acts like a separate app -- close it to get back to the original window. That publish window is where you control or set a pretty fair number of options, e.g. backgrounds, shadows etc., & output your project as a flipping book.

Installation isn't bad, doesn't include its own version of Flash or anything, giving you the "Photo to FlipBook" program folder, with 340 files, 52 folders, ~13 MB -- under All Users\ Application Data the new "A-PDF" folder holds 2 sub-folders but no files -- & another empty folder, "Flip Image", was added under User\ Local Settings. Installed/registered, Photo to FlipBook adds 2 program keys & 1 uninstall key to the registry. Didn't see anything unusual running today's GOTD with SysInternal's Process Explorer, but the flipbooks you create can take a fair bit of horsepower to display properly -- before handing out your work you might want to test it on hardware that's similar to what you expect will be used... you may wind up needing to reduce size, not use page flip FX etc.

All in all I think Photo to FlipBook is fairly usable, & I could see myself using it regularly but not every day -- making DVDs from recordings & such I'm well enough used to work-arounds, so the more tedious aspects, like setting up each page don't bother me all that much. That said, I wouldn't be willing to put up with the shortcomings on a constant, daily basis, & I'd be looking far & wide at Flash apps before I paid more than $10 -- $30 for Photo to FlipBook... for $100 I expect more than an app that, in a nutshell packages your images with a canned viewer. That isn't a criticism as much as [I hope constructive] suggestion to the devs.

Well, I believe that DVD SLIDESHOW GUI utterly outclass this (overpriced) GAOTD worth $99 ($99???? Is it a joke, right?? Come on...)!!!

DVD slideshow GUI is packed with features:

- 240 transitions, 100 Effects you can add to the entire slideshow, 35 Motion Backgrounds(avs).
- Animate your overlapping images using zoom, pan and rotate. Add photos with alpha channel and EXIF data.
- Add videos(avi/avs), Power Point(ppt) and Impress(odp) to you slideshow.
- Add and edit music, motion backgrounds, borders and subtitles.
- Make your own transitions, effects and motion backgrounds.
- Export to dvd video(PAL/NTSC 4:3 16:9), BluRay, 720p, 1080p, dvd audio, dvd chapters, dvd subtitles, avi, flash for web, avisynthscript, storyboards, single images with backgrounds and YouTube.

New Powerful Video features

Avi and avs (video) can now be animated(Ken Burns), overlapped(negative transition durations), overlayed(a transition for adding new slide on top of the old one) and subtitled. A preview image will be visible in the listcontrol/Slidesettings window/Animation window. In other words videos can be handled like slides now whithout the previous limitations.

In the music listcontrol the right click menu has a new function called 'Use Video Audio'. If this is checked music will fade in and out around videoclips in the slideshow and if it is unchecked the music will be played over video clips too and no audio from the videoclips will be heard.

Did I mention that, unlike today's giveaway, it doesn't cost you a DIME??

@Fubar: you couldn't test, but I bet you will be disappointed if you do so later.

The demo is very nice but can not be made with this software right now. It should be able to do so, but it cannot.

This is due to the fact that only one layout works, all others are inactive. To do what the demo shows, you need the corresponding layouts.

Only possibility: one picture on every page. This software is kind a crippled.

The good thing: you can make nice flipbooks with one picture on every page. This is still possible and will hopefully suit the needs of many.

I agree wholeheartedly with you Angela (#20) - folks rush to comment here before the fully explore the software. I hope folks don't rush to judgement re downloading this offering based on some of the negative comments here, which may be unfounded.

I did not experience the problem that #2 did with full screen mode, but I'm using Win7 32-bit so maybe its just an issue with XP or that particular user's installation.

You can "open" a range of photos and bring them en masse into the work area. IF you are using a single photo/page template, it would be nice to be able to create flip pages en masse.

The program is easy to learn & use, and does a nice job. There are a few areas for improvement, as noted, but then again, that's one of the reasons software manufacturer's participate here!

Just as a follow up to my earlier post: you CAN use your own frames, and text boxes. All you need to do is click the 'browse' button and you can navigate to any other files you have on your computer. So long as they are compatible (PNG), they are available for your use.

Also another thing that others may have missed, if you double-click on a photo that you have inserted, another box comes up allowing you to scale, angle, move and flip the photo, or change the opacity of it.

Now, that's just about every single thing on the entire book that's completely, and utterly changeable.... only one thing left, can you create your own layout templates?

Haven't found this yet, but you never know!

To #7 -Don Hill I would just like to point out I Know the Terms and Conditons of the Software Given here at Giveaway of the Day as I have been comming to this site Daily Faithfully for over 2 years and in my Statement I was mearly pointing out that one could apply this giveaway in business aspects if they wanted to purchase a License for the product. I assume most people Read and understand the conditions above and in the Readme files that they download.

I was just simply pointing out some possible uses for this software and showing that a good software design does not have to be one category that it could be apllied to many different categorys.

My Mistake If I was not Clear and applogize if People felt I was misleading in my statement. and to Personaly attack me and suggest that I am a Bad Marketer or spammer is not correct.

To many people ready to jump on a Negitive Bandwagon.
Flip Page Maker is a Great Peice of Software and not only could you build Family Albums, personal Photo Albums but one could use this software to Create E-book Products, and Educational Products, Art products etc .. and one could Yes Sell those products they Create.
In which I personally see nothing wrong with that

and again Thank you GOTD and Flipage Maker for this Download.

I have been searching for a good page flip app. This is a very viable contender against some of the commercial apps out there. I have tried several of them and the majority of them convert files to PDF's and can take a long time to load. This one is great as I used it with jpg's and the output files are jpg's. That means you can edit them very easily or exchange pages easily. A great program with tons of features. I spent that last hour playing with it and it is easy to use, powerful and has a lot of nice features. Thanks GOTD.

This is a neat fun program. Unlike Word to FlippingBook which was offered here in May, this will actually install and work on 64 bit Windows 7.

You can experiment with page sizes, layouts, colors, and they have additional free templates that you can download from their site.

Re:#14, they have a different product for conversions from PDF files. This is another one of those products with a single input format. I assume their professional version includes various input formats. Anyway, it's still a good program to me.

as someone said, it has limited use, can't add sound for example, thanks, but no thanks...and $99....I doubt that

I won't have time to test installation and use until later, but I'm impressed with the demo result on their website. More features and more sophisticated animation than similar offerings. Unlike others, actually simulates dragging corner. To flip fast by dragging, drag straight across. Of course, can use buttons at top, or arrows at sides, or the keyboard arrow keys--left and right work as expected, up and down do home and end. To quick-zoom in/out, double-click. Page can be dragged while zoomed. Overlayed zoom control allows additional increments, page flipping, control can be moved (dragged) or minimized. Thumbnails can be displayed and selected, and page numbers can be typed into page number box. The autoflip feature is nice, and sound can be toggled. According to the feature list, you can define background music.

I would like to have the ability to overlay a Word or PDF document over the picture in a transparent fashion so that the text of the document is in the forground and the picture is in the background. This would enable a person to have a vision of something they want to read about. And, if you incorporate the background music suggestion that someone else has mentioned, you have a great inspirations al learning media tool. (BTW, the GAOTD feedback mechanism NEVER recognizes my combination of numbers for verification.)

Flipbook was created with no problems. Converted to html and zip no problems. Now I just wish I knew what I had to do to put this onto my website! Never worked with this type before sorry to say. Nothing in the pdf file that I downloaded from the company's web site.

I have trialled a lot of flip-book software (including several of the different ones offered by today's developer - Flippagemaker.com)

IMO, Flippagemaker.com offerings are one of the best (if not the best) out there. No others I have found are any where near as customisable as theirs are.

Many of the negative comments that have been made are as the result of people not having fully explored the software and it's capabilities.

This is the first photo to flipping book software I have used, and yes, I do agree that it is tedious inserting the photos from one side to the other one at a time, but unless you are satisfied with a randomly generated photo book (as opposed to you placing the photos where you want them) then there isn't really much option, is there?

I also agree that there isn't much in the way of frames / text boxes, etc. I haven't explored the possibility of importing others yet, but if that isn't an option, I agree that this would be a good improvement for the developer to make.

Actually, I use photo collage software quite a lot, so this will be ideal to turn those collages into a flipping book.

Word to Fliping book from Flippagemaker.com was given away a few months ago, but it wasn't compatible with Windows 7. I'm glad to see that they are now getting around to making their software compatible.

For $99 this program needs some major clean-up work! You CAN add music, but you can only do it from the publish page by editing the template! As mentioned by others, there needs to be a lot easier way to add multiple pictures and also to be able to change templates for each page so that Landscape & Portrait pics are displayed correctly. Also more templates that incorporate BOTH landscape & Portrait pics. How about 'customizable templates'? The PUBLISH page needs to have navigation back to the HOME edit page, you have to close window to go back! When playing the final HTML (the option I tried), Win Explorer also opens to the folder that the file was saved in, which is annoying and un-necessary. Program is very slow and doesn't use std Windows file selection keystrokes. The selection box for text balloons gets in the way of the placement of a selected balloon.

Another item I just discovered; on the left column of the program where the individual pages are, you are able to drage the pictures from page 2 to one etc. Very nice. By this I mean exchange pictures on the pages!

Had no problems downloading, installing or registering! I am creating a flip book of pages right now. Locked up on me (didn't save) at 5 pages. Had to use control alt delete to end the program. However, important note here, you do not have to select one picture at a time....after clicking on first picture, hold down your control key to add more prior to clicking on the "open". I selected 3 and all three were added at the same time! Thought everyne would appreciate this thought. Now to go back and start from scratch, but this time, I plan to save it.

Installation and registration went smoothly; on opening the program it covered most of my screen making drag and drop a bit of a problem. Being able to add images by right clicking would certainly be an improvement, but then there is a lot of room for improvement in this program. The finished exe program it produced was not particularly impressive as the rather dull looking presentation was also rather clunky. My feeling was that it’s a rather poor shareware program, and I was curious to see the price, expecting around $10. There it was $9.90 except somebody left the decimal point out, and even at that price I wouldn’t buy it. It has been uninstalled.

Sorry guys but the finished product (ie the the finished flip book) is just not that good. Page turn animation and overall effect is just not of the same quality of other similar programs out there.

For example "Flipping Book Photo Album Builder" price at the same $99 but is a much more polished product.

Perhaps worth $30 but not more

This program is likely fine if your needs are not too demanding. Don't confuse this with their paid version, which is less limited, also it seems that this free version will not accept PDFs. But it works fine.

i liked this software, but i feel it would be nice if there is a option for copying the frame to all the pages if required. Now we have to add the frame one by one.

Why bother with a program like this one and then have several others to do other such kinds of fun.
I use WINDOWS PHOTO STORY 3 to do what this will do and even more such as adding voice and music both as well as creating very nice infor promos and after you make them you can convert them to any format you want with FORMAT FACTORY. These programs are free and always very good. They are updated from time to time to keep you modern.
