Austin TX, December 8, 2005 - Photodex Corporation today announced a new upgrade to its award winning slide show software, ProShow Gold. Version 2.6 is loaded with new features that give a user more control over their slide shows and allows for more customizability than ever before. New features include: image transparency support, a new slide show menuing system, built-in audio and video trimmers, and many workflow enhancements.
ProShow Gold 2.6 is the industry leading photo slide show software for consumers. It allows a user to create a highly customized multimedia slide show in just a few minutes. Users simply drag and drop their photos and videos onto a timeline where they can add audio, transitions, motion effects and more. When a show is complete, a user can choose from 9 different ways to output their show, including burning to DVD.
With the new audio and video trimmers, users can visually edit and crop their multimedia files within ProShow Gold 2.6. The audio trimmer displays a waveform that allows a user to set the starting point, ending point, and fades for their audio. The video trimmer provides accuracy down to the frame and lets a user preview exactly what a video clip will look like.
Users can now incorporate the effects of transparency into their slides. ProShow Gold 2.6 supports transparency for PSD, PNG, TIFF and GIF files. ProShow Gold 2.6 will read the transparency information in a file and render the images so the transparent pixels can be seen through.
The new menuing system in ProShow Gold 2.6 allows users to customize new aspects of their slide show menu. They can now set custom captions, edit menu audio, and adjust images and backgrounds. Once a custom menu is created, it can be saved and used in a future project.
"ProShow Gold 2.6 is the perfect compliment to a new digital camera," says Paul Schmidt, president of Photodex Corporation. "It allows a new user to easily create emotionally engaging slide shows that can be shared during the holiday season or anytime during the year."
ProShow Gold 2.5 is available from www.photodex.com and is priced at $69.95 for electronic delivery, $44.95 to upgrade. A fully functional 15-day trial is available for free download.
