I bought this program when it first came out. At the time it was very good but, limited in functionality. Later I switched to VideoStudio where I had multiple sound tracks, full control of sound, plus many other extras not present in this program. I would not recommend this program for slide shows as I see continued problems with sound exist. This was alluded to in a previous comment.

One of the best photo slide show programs around. Does just about everything a person could want. However, they should really consider multiple sound tracks.. if you try to add extra sounds to the music track, as for instance a camera click or any other type of sound, it distorts the music playing. It is very hard to believe a program of this quality only has (1) ONE Sound Track to work with??? The only other fault is the price $$ of their Producer Pack, for that price you would think they would add another sound track option.

Just completed my second show, this one much more complex than the first. I found to make full use of this program that you should consult not only the progrms "help" section but also familiarize yourself with the many helps on the Photodex website and, when necessary, the technical support people. Just looking at a few of the programs on the featured list on the website gave me a lot of ideas that I incorporated in the show that I just finished.

This program brings to life digital photos and makes creating slideshows easy, fast and professional.

The previous commentor has completely missed the intended use of this software. It is NOT for creating full featured DVDs. IT IS FOR CREATING SLIDESHOWS!!!!!

I have used a number of slideshow apps and this is by far the best!

Overall, ProShowGold (PSG) has all of the features one would require to build a slideshow DVD. The Pan/Zoom feature is the easiest I have found in any package. The UI is pretty straight forward for main tasks, but you have to be a pretty determined person to actually build a multi menu DVD production. I still use it on occasion for short slideshows, and Pan/Zoom on short video clips. BTW: When I downloaded their Version 2.0 DEMO several years ago, you could not generate final output without the word DEMO super-imposed diagonally across the screen. There are "No Free Rides" over at Photodex.

I have reviewed the features contained in Prowshow Gold 3.00 and do not feel that it is worth the 59.99 upgrade fee. There have been no marked improvements - Just fixes to things that never worked well to begin with.(Photodex Formula: New Year = New Release = More $Revenue) This is simply to be an incremental upgrade. BTW: It appears that Photodex "Producer" is now their premium Product. So all of the features that should have gone into PSG 3.0, (With a $59.00 upgrade fee, have all been placed into the "PRODUCER" product with a MSRP of $249.95. Cool product, featured in many PC Magazine articles, slimy marketing/Management practices.)
