While there is photo album software that simply organizes your photos, the top two PC performers in this category – Corel's Photo Album and Adobe's Photoshop Album – provide a dizzying array of features that not offer multiple organizing options, but also provide simple editing tools, slideshow capability, simplified sharing options and back-up assistance.
Both programs offer options like photo calendar creation, automatic re-sizing for e-mailing photos and one-click effects like black and white and sepia. Both also support easy burning of your photos to CD.
Corel even offers a feature especially for the weight-conscious. Their “Thinify” function can actually make your subjects appear slimmer without distortion! (Your mother-in-law will wonder why you always take the best family pictures.)
Neither program is available for the Mac OS, but Apple's iPhoto offers many of the same features. Both Photo Album and Photoshop Album retail for under $50.
