Editors' Review

+

Ashampoo Slideshow Studio HD is an intuitive program that allows users to create attractive, multimedia slideshows. Although nothing about it is particularly amazing, it's a good choice for users who want to create nice-looking slideshows without going to too much trouble.

The program's interface is intuitive, with several different easy-to-use sections. In one section users select the images they want to include in the slideshow, in another they can select a theme--birthday, breaking news, etc.--that will frame each image, in a third they can edit captions and other text, and in the fourth, a preview of the slideshow can be viewed. Users can select the transition effects that are used between each of the images or allow the program to select them randomly, and music can be added to the presentations as well. Once users are satisfied with the slideshow's appearance and audio, it can be processed into several different formats, including MPG, AVI, and WMV. A built-in Help file is fairly well-written and does a good job of explaining how the program works. Overall, although there was nothing particularly outstanding about it, we liked Ashampoo Slideshow Studio HD because it was easy to use and produced an attractive slideshow. It's not the best of the best, but it will meet the needs of most users.

Ashampoo Slideshow Studio HD has a 10-day trial period, and the trial version places a watermark on the program's output. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.

"Good program, but too poor of effect and features."

January 01, 2010  |  By tanomo

 |  Version: Ashampoo Slideshow Studio HD 1.03

Pros

Easy to use. Very low cost (if you are on their mailing list yuo can buy it only for ? 9.90). Good final product.

Cons

There are some features missing to give a very "professional" aspect to your show.

Summary

I love Ashapoo, they have excellent programs for a very low cost. This it's a good program, but too poor of effect and features for the slide show. It needs a little more features(zooming and panning on the slide, some effects of motions and elaboration, ...). The theme are interesting, but are missing some fondamental (like wedding, xmas,...). The preview of singles slide is very small. These are the reason of only 2 stars. With a little more money are other product that do it better, and for a reasonable cost you can buy a video editor to manage also video (for exemple Corel Video Studio or Magix Video De Luxe) with multiple tracks, effects, title and transition. Many of the new Digital Cameras have the video function too. So You sometimes would need to manage a more complex show.

"Unable to trial it would not register for trial period."

July 17, 2010  |  By ron-d

 |  Version: Ashampoo Slideshow Studio HD 1.03

Pros

No comment as unable to run the trial.

Cons

No comment as unable to run the trial.

Summary

Downloaded and attempted to register for the trial period on two occasions, response message 'Trial Period Expired'.
Contacted Ashampoo and recieved reply you can only use the trial period once.
I have used a number of Ashampoo programs but this has dented my confidence in this company's products.

"Simple mais basique"

July 12, 2010  |  By lechat974

 |  Version: Ashampoo Slideshow Studio HD 1.03

Pros

Utilisation simple et intuitive, je ne le conseille qu'aux débutants qui ne veulent pas créer un diaporama très élaboré

Cons

Basique et beaucoup trop limité dans ses choix et ses fonctions. Il ne fait rien de plus que beaucoup d'autres de sa catégorie, mais compte tenu de son prix on ne peut lui demander beaucoup plus.

Summary

Quand on connaît ProShow Gold, il n'y a pas photo....

The ability to add music and professional transitions gives great results. It was so easy to make something to be proud of.

If you want to add photos, you have to re-do the whole project and that takes some time.

"Easy to use, acceptable result"

March 24, 2010  |  By dritogdra

 |  Version: Ashampoo Slideshow Studio HD 1.03

Pros

Best slideshow I have used to now, and it works!

Cons

Difficult to sort the slides by date. Impossible to adjust time vs. transition time when synch with music! Difficult to save a ready rendered result on the HDD for later copies, seems like you have to produce it all from the bottom in stead.

Summary

It is easy to create a show that works as long as you just accept the easy ready made choices. But I miss some slightly more advanced tools: Problem: I collected photos from 5 different cameras which unfortunately did not have their date and time synchronized, and different makes gives different file name setting rules. So I miss tools for batch changing of "date and time taken" which also can set the same date and time for "date and time modified", (batch changing means that you can add or subtract a given amount to year, month, day, hour, minute and second) and batch changing of file name (which means possibility to add a variable or sequencial prefix or suffix to existing name or exchanging the complete name with e.g. a sequencial naming system og time and date produced or whatever!) To solve this today I need 3 different tools, and I have to be very careful and do it in strict order to get a good result. Renaming is not necessary if the slide show could sort the slides not just on file name, but also on (corrected) picture taken date and time - because this obviously is the most natural order of the slides? In a simple job where only one camera is used sorting on file name will PROBABLY give identical result, but far from all jobs are simple?
When I create a show I can decide how long each slide will show and how long the transition time should be, but when I want to synchronize the slide show duration to the added musiic, then suddenly the time each slide is shown have to be equal to the transition time. A little more compilicated mathematics could avoid this drawback so the preferred ratio between show time and transition time could be set?
Finally I miss the question: Do you want to save this project? A big project could take days to finish, a possibility to continue next day after a fresh boot would be nice? Even more, an autosave every 10 minutes or so? And finally posibility to save the complete project. May be it is there, then it could be easier to find?
