Photo DVD Maker Professional 8.52
Softpedia Editor's Review for Photo DVD Maker Professional
Make amazing photo slide show and burn photo album on DVD disc playable on TV
Written by Elena Opris on February 1st, 2012
Photo DVD Maker Professional is a software that lets you create slideshows and photo albums, and burn them to disc.
The interface of the program is easy to navigate through, thanks to the Explorer-based layout. All you have to do is organize your photos, choose a menu and burn content to disc.
You can add images by opening the context menu or by using the "drag and drop" method, rotate or automatically adjust them, add text and background music, as well as insert a blank image.
Furthermore, you can add transitions (e.g. wipe, sweep, expand, twirl, frame, puzzle) and music, as well as configure album settings (transition, photo, slideshow and audio duration, background color).
But you can also play or trim the selected background music, move it a second forward or backward, import music from an audio CD, randomize photo transitions, and much more.
When it comes to the album theme, you can display opening and closing credits, as well as select a text effect, duration, font size and color. Once you are satisfied with the results, you can select a CD/DVD recorder and the video encoding quality, and proceed with the disc burning process.
The software uses a moderate-to-high amount of system resources and contains a comprehensive help file. However, it requires you to separately install third-party applications in order to fully function (but you are guided in that direction). Also, it crashed once when we tried accessing the sound recording tool. Other than that, we strongly recommend Photo DVD Maker Professional to all users.
