Austin, TX—Photodex Corporation released ProShow 4.5, the latest version of its slideshow software for Windows, which now adds automatic slideshow creation with a new wizard and hundreds of new transitions and effects. In addition, ProShow Producer users can build their own transitions with the new Create Transition tool.
ProShow’s wizard instantly mixes a user’s photos, videos and music together into a slideshow. It comes with hundreds of built-in themes and effects for creating slideshows for any occasion. Users can adjust the energy level of their shows, customize themes and create their own themes by mixing together any of the available slide styles and transitions.
“We wanted the user experience with v4.5 and the new wizard to be seamless; instant show creation with the option to edit down to the millisecond if a user chooses to do so. It’s the best of both worlds,” said Paul Schmidt, president and founder of Photodex Corporation. “I also couldn’t be more excited about our new transition effects. They open up whole new world of instant, creative power for ProShow.”
ProShow 4.5 includes new transition effects like page curl, curved path and camera flash. The transitions interface was redesigned to make browsing effects easier, with categorizations like simulations, image adjustments and page effects. ProShow 4.5 also supports adding new transitions with ProShow Transition Packs. Volume 1 is available now for $19.95 and come with an additional 25 transition effects, including clouds, smoke and 3D drift.
A bonus for Producer 4.5 users is the new ability to build custom transition effects for use in their shows. Custom-built transitions can be used by the wizard and can be distributed to friends online. ProShow 4.5 also has more than 100 new slide styles for creating instant special effects in slideshows. The style selection includes themed effects for weddings, portraits and celebrations, along with popular staples like the backdrop zoom and pan styles, and new caption styles.
Upgrades start at $44.95 for ProShow Gold 4.5 and $89.95 for ProShow Producer 4.5; downloadable and boxed editions available. ProShow Transition Pack Volume 1 has an MSRP of $19.95 and requires ProShow 4.5. photodex.com
