CyberLink MediaShow is a one-stop shop for all of your photo and video management and creation needs. It offers many features, such as movie and slideshow creation, as well as social media sharing options. You'll enjoy the flexibility and great design, but be prepared for occasional instability.
Tons of features: We found CyberLink Media Show to be a very versatile and able application, especially for creating videos and editing pictures. The face tagging and photo touch-up tools performed well, and we had no problems with the DVD or slideshow creators.
Social integration: MediaShow gives you quick links, so you can share media with websites, such as YouTube, Facebook, and Flickr, as well as send files via email directly from the application. We experienced no slowness or errors while uploading files to the Internet.
Well structured: You will find this program to be a great organizational tool. We easily located media files with the crafty calendar view. The layout is helpful and large, so pictures and menu options are not difficult to locate.
Irregular instability: MediaShow sometimes crashed or froze during our tests. This was a rare phenomenon, but it occurred enough to be a concern for us. This may be a local issue, and your experience may differ.
CyberLink produces a number of great programs, and MediaShow is one of them. There are many features available in the free version, and it performs all tasks with ease and speed. Multiple design themes would make it a more engaging program. Regardless, you should download CyberLink MediaShow because it is fully-loaded, fast, and versatile.

Worked fine for first day, day and a half and then could not get it to work at all. Everytime I would open it, click on photos, it would immediate crash. When it did work, it would never stop scanning. I spent most of one week with tech support and their only solution was to log-on as administrator. Didn't feel that was the right solution because when I did, even though Media Show would open properly, my entire desktop was totally re-configured with all internet short cuts missing and other issues.
I guess it woul be ok if you originally set your computer up as being the administrator. I won't do that because I have more than 2 years of configuring my computer the was it is not as administrator.
Bottom line - I'm glad I didn't pay for it.
