Besides providing a link to download it free of charge, this page offers many useful links for using all of its many features, such as adding music, adding motion, adding narration, etc. In addition there are tutorials on 'buning' storeis ot DVD as well as links to other sites about digital storytelling. There are also links fo using Photoshop and the simpler (and less expensive) Photoshop Elements. As an excellent example, there is also a link to a completed digital story.
