As try Tweak PS in addition to photostory - You can edit all slides timings in one go rather than bothering to do each one individually within photostory.

Good idea, but our teachers don't have time to rehearse anything. They can understand pressing the "next" button to advance a PowerPoint slide, but that's about it. They tend to like, and understand, nice simple setups where going to a particular slide plays a photo show. This means we can do stuff for assemblies where they have a title screen, then another slide with a photoshow (or a video, whatever), then maybe a blank, black slide so they can blank the screen without having to turn the projector off. I can sympethise with them, too - speaking in front of 500 pupils at morning assembly takes enough thinking about without having to worry about which buttons to press to get the slideshow to do what you want.

Looks like a decent bit of software generally, but doesn't do the exact thing we want. We have a bit of music X seconds long, Y number of photos, we want each photo to be displayed for X/Y seconds as something that can be embedded in PowerPoint. Our staff don't have time to fiddle around with anything beyond click-and-drag operations.

I've had a look at Picasa before, it stores image mdification data in a file in the same folder as the images it is looking at. This would cause problems on a network share, with different people trying to use the same file.

Good plan, but after editing Photostory reckoned the file was corrupted.

Looking at the demo running on the front page, it seems that the application can't do a simple fade from one image to another. This is a limitation of Flash (Flash MX, anyway) not being able to apply transparency to a bitmap image. It might be possible to do bitmap fades with a newer version of Flash or Flex, but this application, nifty though it is, doesn't seem to be able to.
