ProShow Web Update Delivers Major Enhancements to Online Slideshow Creation
New functionalities delivered to ProShow Web include exciting 3D tilt effects and themes, new music categorization, automatic music syncing and more
Austin, TX – March 13, 2012 – Slideshow tool provider, Photodex, today announced the latest and greatest updates for ProShow Web. ProShow Web is an online tool that lets people easily mix photos, video clips and music together into polished video slideshows.
New 3D tilt effects and themes are among the impressive list of features now found in ProShow Web. Other highlights include:
· An automatic energy level which ensures that photos and music end at the same time without the awkward lingering or cutoffs; this is now the default feature for creating new shows.
· Importing photos into new shows is now easier as well. Along with the integration of popular photo sharing platforms Instragram and Flickr, the redesigned import service is now under the “Imagery” tab with third-party add buttons visibly available.
· Improved music categorization has been implemented based on feedback from users. Now in the music library, users can simply pick a category from a well organized list or select from a list of frequently used tracks.
The biggest change is how effects are handled when re-processing a show. Now, after a show is built for the first time, ProShow Web locks in a user’s effects. Unless a user removes them or specifically uses the Try Again button, ProShow Web will keep all effects intact. This lets users edit and tweak their slideshows without losing the effects ProShow Web has applied, but still provides an easy way to remix an entire show.
“As with all our ProShow products, it was incredibly important to us to make sure we listened to feedback from our users,” said Paul Schmidt, founder and president of Photodex. “We’re really thrilled with the way the new updates to ProShow Web have turned out and can’t wait to see what our users create.”
