Slideshow Magic 5 from Koingo Software has been upgraded to version 5.0 and works on both Macs and PCs. This application allows you to make a slideshow with your pictures and then export that slideshow in a Quicktime compatible movie format. You can also add audio tracks and pick from hundreds of visual effects to put into your presentation. A single user license of the application will cost you $19.95 and there is a 15 day trial available. However, if you purchased Slideshow Magic 4 after November 21st, 2007, this will be a free upgrade.
According to the product description, “One of the most powerful features of Slideshow magic is its universality. Using the latest in multimedia technology, your compiled video has the ability to be uploaded to the web, shared with users on other platforms, and even burnt onto a DVD!” This sounds like a great application for making slideshows and has all the features you would want or need. If you use this app, let us know how it is!
