Photodex is Shutting Down

January 31, 2020

It's always sad to say goodbye. After over 30 years, Photodex Corporation will be closing permanently on January 31, 2020. We're incredibly grateful for the opportunity to serve our customers over the last three decades.

Below you'll find all the details you need to know about what happens next with the software and services you've gotten from Photodex.

Looking for a replacement for ProShow?

Photopia is our official recommendation!



Photopia is the next generation of slideshow software. Created by some of the original developers of ProShow, Photopia takes slideshow creation to all new heights.

All new from the ground-up, Photopia was built using many of the ideas Photodex had developed for the next generation of ProShow. With Photodex's blessings, Photopia has taken these ideas and created something that will be instantly familiar to ProShow users while also taking a major leap forward.

Photopia has tons of incredible new features and reimagines how slideshow software should work. It is compatible with your existing ProShow files - you can load existing shows, use your Slide Styles and templates, and more.

Photopia is an entirely new product, and is not published by Photodex. Questions about this product should be directed to Photopia.
