I came across the site www.photosnack.com about a week ago while trying to find a great photo slideshow app/widget for one of our clients, and I have to say I’m a HUGE fan.
Photosnack is a super easy way to create your own slideshow that you can embed into your TeamPage. They offer up 24 great slideshow templates to choose from, all of which are visually impressive. The best part is, no coding is necessary! You literally select the photos you want, choose your template, then copy and paste the IFrame code into your TeamPage as a custom widget. That’s it! Photosnack is an awesome way to highlight those amazing plays of the year and to showcase your sponsors with visual flare. Did I mention that this is absolutely free to use?
Check out the slideshows I created for my TeamPage below and view it in full affect at: www.marksbaseballteam.teampages.com
But wait… it gets better!
