Creating computer slide shows is very easy with MySlideShow. This
simple and straightforward software application offers its users a
comprehensive toolkit for making bright, memorable and esthetically
pleasing slide shows and photo albums. The program is quite
elementary - select pictures, indicate the desired sequence (or
choose random order), apply special transition effects, and you get
a professionally looking slide show with one button click.
Conveniently, photo albums, thumbnail web galleries, screensavers,
video CDs and DVDs can be created with the same program!
MySlideShow is jam-packed with helpful features, meaning you will
never have to buy any additional software. For example, MySlideShow
is capable of adding and editing slide captions (it's possible to
use EXIF and IPTC tags), changing picture
orientation, synchronizing slide shows with music and sound effects.
All options can be applied to individual images or entire sets of
pictures; the slide show can go on in automatic and manual modes,
making it possible to use MySlideShow for creating presentations.
Your slide show can have a playlist synchronized with slides, an
independent background playlist and slide-specific playlists. You
can add background music and narration/voice-over audio files.
The Slide Editor in the MySlideShow Gold allows you to place
additional text boxes, web links, small images, Flash animations and
video clips on slides.
Importantly, the program is capable of packing slide shows into
standalone executable and screensaver files (.exe and .scr
respectively), thus making it very easy to distribute them. The
Video Generator plug-in allows you to burn VCD, SVCD, DVD video
discs and create VCD, SVCD, DVD, WMV and DivX video files from your
slide show projects. These features are just a small fraction of
what the software has to offer its buyers. And best of all, anyone
can try MySlideShow free of charge.
The program offers unique features for photographers who want to
distribute their executable slide show files to end users. You can
create trial slide shows which expire after N days, X tries or on a
specific date. Then your customers can order the fully-functional
slide show and/or unlock the trial slide show with a password you

What users are saying
Just a note to compliment you on creating the best and most complete slide
show software on the market.
I am a professional entertainer who includes movie trivia and more in my karaoke
shows as well as trivia games on DVDs that I do at children's parties. I
have tried every slide program available from those requiring special viewers to
those that produce flash slide shows. However, I have never found one as
complete and well written as yours.
You have definitely covered all bases and I just want to say thanks for a great
