"Do Not Buy IT 2014"

June 20, 2014  |  By tony182297

 |  Version: MAGIX PhotoStory 2014 deluxe 2014

Pros

Awesome product 6-19-2014

Cons

A revolving ACTIVATION CODE. Which means anytime you have to reload it,or try to install on your second PC. You need a NEW activation code. And You need your original ORDER number. And their restore Activation doesn't work. You also are not to install on more than one PC. I understand the need for security. But they go way too far. I will never buy it again.

"Should Have Believed The Reviews"

February 17, 2013  |  By Diditwork

 |  Version: Magix PhotoStory on DVD Deluxe 2013

Pros

All the features I was looking for. Very easy to import photos to the timeline.

Cons

Feature I was most interested in, doesn't work. I have not continued with a presentation creations, as I don't want to waste my time if this feature doesn't work

Summary

I chose to ignore the negative reviews of this product, as I am usually able to figure out the more complicated applications and the video demonstrated all of the features I needed for presentations. I want to create travel slide shows, so the "Map Route Animation" feature was exactly what I needed. The first time I tried to use it, a browser opens up and then states that it can't connect to the internet. I went to support and followed the suggestions for Internet Explorer settings. (It states that this is the only browser it works with). This did not solve the issue. I then sent a request for a solution to support. I received a reply, stating that there was a patch needed to correct the location that the browser was being sent to. I utilized the link to the patch provided, only to find a message there stating that the patch was not available at the moment. So far, that moment has gone on for days.

"Bug after bug after bug - and user unfriendly"

August 27, 2012  |  By hcajones

 |  Version: Magix PhotoStory on DVD Deluxe MX

Pros

Extensive features (transitions, animations, etc.) if you can ever figure out how to use them

Cons

Non-intuitive, unfriendly interface and program. Examples: if you move a photo into its "Media Pool" and the decide not to use it and delete it, you have also just deleted it from the ORIGINAL folder. If you type title text and then try to apply movement to it, instead of the other way around, your entire computer will lock up. (How could you possibly know this?) There are no blank or title slides; if you want to use one, the Magix.info site explains work-arounds that are ridiculously complex compared to the one-click options of most other similar programs.

Summary

After a week of struggling with the trial version, I have uninstalled it and will move on to something that, I hope, actually works. Both Windows Movie Maker and Wondershare are short on features I want, but I would use either one rather than trying to slog through Magix.

"Very Bad customer service"

July 12, 2012  |  By tony182297

 |  Version: Magix PhotoStory on DVD Deluxe MX

Pros

sad ...such good software,is of no use when you can not use it because of a very difficult activation code process.Very expensive.

Cons

the activation code. is a revolving code. if anything changes in your PC. You will need a new code. Getting a new code is not easy. I have lost two days work, waiting for the tech team in Germany to respond. I just got off the phone and the rude sales department rep said the German team went home.1-305-722-5810 : Sales (9am - 4pm EST, Mon - Fri)If I can only call between 9 and 4 US eastern time. And with the difference in Germany time,what kind of opportunity does that give you to call.

Summary

I may eat the $80..loss and buy a new product

"HORRIBLE!!"

November 15, 2011  |  By southerngirl56

 |  Version: Magix PhotoStory on CD & DVD Deluxe 10.0

Pros

None! I think they put too much thought and made this product too complicated, but then it doesn't even work correctly!

Cons

This application is extremly complicated! It came with a 250+ page instruction book that I had to ask for. The customer service in Germany is not helpful and will only allow you to email them and take 2-3 days for a response. You have to pay an additional fee for phone service. All of the stuff it says it will do - importing videos is also an additional fee. When I finally spent HOURS on a project to convert it to a DVD, nothing worked properly. The slidshow was out of oder, the text was missing, etc. Terrible application.

Summary

Do not waste your money. I've actually submitted a dispute charge with my credit card company! If I could I'd give it ZERO stars.

"good product with lots of codec fees; service nightmare"

November 12, 2011  |  By a6p7

 |  Version: Magix PhotoStory on CD & DVD Deluxe 10.0

Pros

Excellent features

Cons

You have to buy codecs with constipated red tape procedures; then whenever I updated the product, Magix did not recognize my order numbers and codec confirmation codes; as a result - because of their lousy European service, I've had to repurchase codecs otherwise I'd be waiting for service from mid-Friday to Monday !! They live in the past, I'm afraid.

"Software that misses a basic point-image quality."

March 27, 2011  |  By Fairvoice

 |  Version: Magix PhotoStory on CD & DVD Deluxe 9.0

Pros

none that I can think of right

Cons

Serious flaws in software not addressed.

Summary

Do you have nice and sharp images that you want to show in a professional slideshow? Well then this is NOT the sofware for you. Imported images are not correctly processed and show up nice and fuzzy as if digital photography is still in its infancy. Various excuses on its blogs and Q and A sites don't adress the issue, nor does its acrobat formatted manual. I'm asking for a refund.
