    Pros: 

    Works as advertised. Fun, simple, easy to understand.

    Cons: 

    On my laptop, couldn't figure out how to add emoji or resize pix or reorder frames.

    I see lots of potential here. Thanks, Graham. I am not sure how to share except via download. Was hoping I could share via the link, but it didn't work: blob:https://grahammacphee.com/8cefe71f-782f-4ee6-9c05-cb725d5e8033

    Pros: 

    Easy to use, simple

    Cons: 

    Re-ordering isn't immediately clear, no specific substring text formatting

    I really like this! It's super simple and relatively intuitive. Here's just a few things that I think would be cool:

    - make re-ordering the cards obvious (with a "drag and drop" symbol in the top corner of each card maybe?)

    - add in specific word formatting (it's possible to do this for ALL of the text on a given slide which is still pretty good)

    - maybe include timers for each slide - making each slide appear for a specified length of time

    Overall, I love it though! Definitely going to play with it and possibly even use it in some of my side project content.

    Pros: 

    Simple and efficient!

    Cons: 

    ...to simple?

    Shout can help you create simple GIFs from slides with options such as background color, background image and font style. It has been great and the font is well chosen. However, more options for images (like resizing or entering) would be much appreciated. :)

    Pros: 

    forces you to consider your message better.

    Cons: 

    not avaiilable offline.

    Flashing lights and text is not for everybody, sure... but this one is so easy to use, it's worth a shot. Gonna see how this plays out on my webs.
