PhotoStage 3.00 Beta

A professional application that helps you create beautiful photo and video slideshow presentations and export your work to various formats, such as AVI, MKV or FLV
PhotoStage is a program which allows you to create slideshows from images, by providing you with some simple-to-use tools.

The interface of the application is clean and intuitive. You can get started by importing photographs and media files via the file browser or "drag and drop" method. Also, you can insert a blank slide.

But you can also add effects (e.g. brightness, crop, rotate, speed, zoom) and transitions (e.g. fade, reveal, wipe, circle, heart, diamond).

In addition, you can record a narration, preview the slideshow, save the current frame as an image, shuffle clips, apply multiple clips effects (e.g. black and white, negative, sepia, oil painting), stretch or shrink slides to match the soundtrack duration, as well as use the undo and redo functions, and more.

Once you are satisfied with the results, you can save the slideshow to disc, hardware, portable device, as an image sequence or Flash file, or you can upload it, as well as create a DVD movie or data disc.

In the "Options" area you can set the default cache folder, enable PhotoStage to remove cache files on exit and to automatically add transitions, set the time format, specify the snapshot directory along with audio narration, track and snapshot format, and others.

The application requires a moderate amount of system resources, includes a comprehensive help file (too bad it doesn't have snapshots) and didn't freeze, crash or pop up errors during our tests. All in all, PhotoStage is an excellent tool for creating slideshows and we highly recommend it to all users, regardless of their experience level.
