Leafletter recently launched a simple application which enables users to create animated widgets that can be embedded into blogs, social networks and other web sites. These widgets are called "Leaflets" and can be used to display photos and other information in a unique and interesting fashion. Leaflets are Flash based and can be displayed where HTML is welcome.
I recently created a simple Leaflet shown below. I uploaded few photos, selected background colors, layouts, actions and text. Photos can be uploaded from your computer, a URL or via Flickr. I would like to see other photo services as options. Audio and video configuration would also add additional utility. The only frustration I encountered with Leaftree was that the widget sometimes transitioned slowly and caused me to lose pages that I was working on.
Leafletter could come in handy in upcoming blog posts as a new way to present logos or images in a more interesting fashion. With a few additional features added Leafletter could also be used for online mini slide presentations. Check out the Leafletter tutorial for more details on how to set up your own.
Bottom-line: Leafletter enables users to create customizable photo widgets that might come in handy in your next blog post or your social network page.
