As far as creating slideshows and having them shared goes, SlideMyPics is quite a good alternative. This web tool will let you take and group as many pictures as you want in the shape of an HTML5 slideshow, and then embed such a slideshow wherever people could see it. Your blog, your own site, your Facebook profile… it is all allowed.
The creation process itself is handled using a smooth interface that will let you retrieve your images from wherever you have them (IE, Flickr, Picasa, even your Facebook profile) and then have them organized. You will then be able to preview the slideshow, and make any final changes to it before having it posted to the relevant social media profiles, or saved for good.
This process (which as you can see is pretty direct) is also completely free. You will be able to have as many slideshows as you want created, saved and edited later on. And when embedding them, you will be able to set them to auto-play, too. A practical web tool, and no mistaking.
