    "Product is very Good easy to follow step by step"

    December 30, 2011  |   By scottyblue77

    Version: Magix Slideshow Maker 2.0

    Pros

    Very easy to follow the prompts . . .

    Cons

    Big Con > They make you do an add-on before you can download it > Well the add which is a site plus an extra tool bar you don't need > infected my PC with something.

    I just downloaded yesterday and get an email from the site they make you download that someone HACKED into their site and people might have problems.

    Way to go!!!!!!!!!!!

    "Can't complain about free - does what I need"

    December 24, 2011  |   By jedwoods1

    Version: Magix Slideshow Maker 2.0

    Pros

    Follow the instructions and it works.
    Output is very good and eminently watchable.
    Can load other music if desired.
    Can load into video editing programs - ideal timesaver to add interest to stills.

    Cons

    A bit painful if you load many photos and want to re-order them - might be better re-order/-name a folder of copies before loading them into the program to save slow re-ordering woes. (f you edit heavy like me.)
    No HD output.
    Fixed-sized program window, no advantage gained on larger monitors.
    Additional music must be in OGG format.

    Summary

    You get what you pay for - and this was free even after registration (worked for me anyway). As I have thousands of digital stills he full version is worth considering.

    "Could've been a contender..."

    December 3, 2011  |   By MartinSilenus

    Version: Magix Slideshow Maker 2.0

    Pros

    The interface is intuitive, and there is practically no learning curve.

    Cons

    The watermark! The watermark! The watermark!

    Summary

    ps: Yes, there is a default option to install a Toolbar, but you can unchecked it during installation.

    "Refused to Install after Blocking the ASK Toolbar"

    November 22, 2011  |   By SummersSapphire

    Version: Magix Slideshow Maker 2.0

    Pros

    None at All ~ Wouldn't Install because I denied the Ask Toolbar checker access to my PC as it unpacked !

    Cons

    Won't Install unless you allow the Ask Toolbar checker full access to your pc !

    Summary

    What can I say ? .. I'd rather pay for a program without malware rather than allow the Ask Toolbar access to my pc on a Freebie !

    "AWESOME! Very simple to use."

    November 16, 2011  |   By kelboswell

    Version: Magix Slideshow Maker 2.0

    Pros

    Very easy to use for 'Quick & Dirty' projects. Just drop all your pics in, and tell it to 'go'.

    Cons

    User interface is a little confusing. OK once you get used to it. Should be able to export formats other than WMV.

    Summary

    I needed a piece of software to compile weekly slideshows for a karaoke bar. This software is awesome! All I have to do is dump all of the pics into it, and export a video. Each picture can be 'tweaked' if need be. I just drop them in, and let it go! AWESOME!

    "Works well for small, simple projects."

    October 29, 2011  |   By b4webs

    Version: Magix Slideshow Maker 2.0

    Pros

    Has a good number of effects / transitions, ability to save template. Addition of audio. Fairly simple and straight forward to use.

    Cons

    There are so many programs that far surpass anything this program can do and a great deal of them are quite easy to use. No matter how hard you try with this program you will not be able to create a professional looking slideshow. Also it is very annoying to have the made by screen at the end.

    Summary

    For a free program, for those who are not asking for too much, this will fit the bill. This is not what most people are looking for however since as I stated earlier so many other companies have vastly better products.

    "Was good until trial ended"

    July 18, 2011  |   By weirdwallee

    Version: Magix Slideshow Maker 2.0

    Pros

    Basically a very good program. I would have paid money for it.

    Cons

    7 day trial - then you must register. Good luck after that.

    Summary

    For 7 days, the program worked great. Since registration was free, I eagerly registered. I was willing to pay 50 bucks for it even if registration wasn't free ! But after registration, the program quit working properly! I haven't been able to make a decent slideshow since. I guess "free registration" is their way of getting your e-mail address so they can spam you - and then later hit you up for the full price of the program (which, once paid, will make it work properly again).
