A handy Photo Index provides a quick scan through all of the photos in an album, with options to display thumbnail or full-screen images, show photo descriptive information or skip to a selected page. Photo Search can be used to find all photos containing a particular string of text within their descriptions. Album pages or individual photos can be viewed as a slide show, with various options.
