Softpedia Editor's Review for DVD Photo Slideshow Professional
Make photo slideshows for TV, PC, iPod, cell phone, PSP, Web, YouTube, Facebook
Written by Elena Opris on March 28th, 2013
DVD Photo Slideshow Professional is an application that helps you create image slideshows for various platforms.
The user interface of the program is clean and intuitive. You can use the Explorer-based layout to search for and import media files (the "drag and drop" method is also supported). There are three simple steps you can follow - organize photos, choose menus and burn to disc.
Thus, you can add photos, blank images, video clips, background music and transitions (e.g. "Alpha Blend", "Heart Iris", "4 Points", "Bar Wipe", "Box Wipe") and configure album settings (e.g. transition, photo, slideshow and audio duration).
Furthermore, you can change the album theme, add titles and credits, preview your album, trim music and import songs from an audio CD, record sound and edit the menu layout.
In addition, you can save projects to further edit them, explore the temporary folder, batch collect photos, change TV aspect ratio, display the album in full screen mode, add clipart, automatically adjust exposure, set a custom transition, pan and zoom, and more.
Once you are satisfied with the results, you can create a DVD, SVCD, web album, MPEG, YouTube uploadable clip, and others.
DVD Photo Slideshow Professional takes up a moderate to high amount of system resources, includes a comprehensive help file and has a very good response time. However, it crashes every time we try to access 'Sound Recorder' under the 'Tools' menu. Even so, the software is simple to use by anyone and we recommend you try it.
