This application also supports movie files, which are incorporated into the storyline by cropping image stills from videos.

Can I start my project on one device and finish on another device?

Can I use my photos from Instagram, Facebook, and other SNS? Can I use online photo storage services with the application?
You would need to download the images to your local device running the hdAlbum EZ App in order to use images from social media or photo storage services.
Do I have to complete my project all in one sitting?
It is not necessary to complete your project in one sitting. The hdAlbum EZ App allows you to save and access your project at a later time. Just go to the Menu tab and select My Albums.
Can I change the layout by myself after the auto layout?
