Here's my original review.
In 2004 I discovered ProShow Gold 2.0 slide show software. This is not your ordinary slide show program. The ability to create Hollywood-style productions on your PC will astound you and wow your friends and family. If you use visuals in business presentations even your clients will be impressed.
I've been telling all my photographer friends ProShow Gold is must have software for film and digital camera owners.
Slide Shows Become Full
No steep learning curve!
My friend Bob sells products online, but he's strictly a hobbyist when it comes to photography. Bob downloaded the free trial version of ProShow Gold, went into his library of digital images and within an hour he was sharing a three minute video, complete with animated captions and synchronized audio soundtrack. I'm in Seattle, he's in Arizona yet I was able to watch Bob's flashy presentation when he uploaded the show to his web site and streamed the video.
Don't have a web site? Photodex, the developer of ProShow Gold, lets you upload slide shows and you can share them with friends anywhere for free.
Who Needs ProShow Gold?
Anyone who takes photos on a regular basis and likes to share them with others. Anyone who uses photography and graphics in their business to make sales, visual presentations, catalogs, portfolios and more.
Not convinced? Download the Photodex Presenter browser plug-in and see the ProShow Gold demo slide shows created by people just like you and me.
Here are some ideas to get you started, using photos you've already taken.
