Vector Word: Select from one of the 6 pre-created word balloon sets and edit the shape and style. Create a nice pointy tail, and then reposition it to meet your needs just by moving some sliders.
Automatically arrange images or pictures with an automatic camera to instantly create compelling slideshows and presentations. Gather multiple pictures and scatter throughout the art board for an easy to create slideshow of your favourite images. Add HTML5 interactivity for a complete, immersive presentation experience.
Automatically Arrange in 3D with Advanced Camera Options

Import & Export
You can combine images, sounds and movies in virtually any format to create motion comics and presentations.
