"Absolutley Brilliant"

January 10, 2006  |  By deasluke

 |  Version: ProShow Gold 2.5 build 1635

Pros

This program is packed with very useful features and can view more photos than any other program! The customization features are great and you have a load of publishing methods to choose from. The support is good however there are no manuals or tutorials which I feel every program needs. Supports most windows systems. The price of this is great knowing that you have wonderful features and an easy to use program. I give this two thumbs up and recommend it to everybody!

Cons

As I meantioned above, dosen't include a manual or tutorial. This product can sometimes be a little tricky to get the hang of but they have put together a good trial for you. Dosen't support NT.

"Good concept, easy to learn, has a serious sound bug."

November 12, 2005  |  By blitz

 |  Version: ProShow Gold 2.5 build 1635

Pros

Easy to learn, a very nice "collect show files" function

Cons

Sound track is dragging all around.The solution is to create a single merged sound track for the show.

The sound problem has been noticed on many earlier version, but they didn't fixed it.

Support is of course not capable to overcome this major software bug, so you have to find a solution elsewhere.

Easy To put show together

Cons

Even after I updated the software as prompted it would hang up after 40% complete. Very Frustrating.

"Expensive but best I have found so far"

September 18, 2005  |  By jbowen28

 |  Version: ProShow Gold 2.5 build 1635

Pros

Best quality slideshow program I have found but I am still searching. I tried Adobe's Premier Pro slideshow feature but it, like many others I tried, generated lots of artifacts and distortions especially when pan and zoom effects are used even in uncompressed output. This program avoids these problems I believe with the "limit frame to 800x600" property. Even with this property turned on, the 4x zooms still have good resolution.

Cons

Considering that many good consumer video editors can create slideshows as well as combine video with stills for under $100, this program is expensive. Also, when I playback the mpeg2 file or DVD on my interlaced TV, I get flickering especially on vertical edges even with anti-flicker turned on in Proshow Gold. This flickering does not appear on a progressive scan monitor like a PC monitor.

"Disappointed."

July 17, 2005  |  By Da Vinci

 |  Version: ProShow Gold 2.5 build 1635

Pros

The concept is great. I have not yet come across another program that helps you put together a slideshow with such ease and control.

Cons

Although the concept of this software is great, it has some serious instability. It will work fine on one machine and then very problematic on another, and I am talking about machines that more than meet the minimum requirements. The audio sticks and the motion effect is not smooth, it too sticks and is very jerky at times. This has been the problem since version 2.0 was introduced. Version 2.5.1635 is here and it too has similar problems although they are somewhat reduced. I am a photographer and started to present the executable slideshows for PCs to my clients. They loved it. I used version 1.32 at the time. However when version 2.0 (which I find to have a more professional feel) problems began. I was embarrassed on two occasions when presenting the slideshow to clients and the shows were jerky and at times stopped. This happened both with vesion 2.0 and 2.5. It is very frustrating to have a program with so much features that is potentially good but then cannot "Bring It". Photodex is not ready as yet. I will not recommend this version to anyone, stay clear of it. Yes it may work on your computer, but if you want to share your slideshows with others or you are a photographer, some of your friends and clients respectively will be disappointed. I have never had this problem with version 1.32. On every computer I tried it on, it work beatifully. I have gone back to using version 1.32 and I am happy with that. Loading photos in v1.32 is also a snap. I can load over 100 photos in the timeline of v1.32 in less than five seconds, not so with v2.5 which takes a million years. I do hope Photodex can get some real software programmers and improve and ProShow Gold because I do like some of the new features.

"Excellent Program"

May 31, 2005  |  By adelva

 |  Version: ProShow Gold 2.5 build 1635

Pros

I love Proshow Gold because you are able to create the most beautiful shows. You are able to put then into DVD, VCD, Web, SVCD and video file. They also have more than 200 hundred transitions. This make for a spectacular show. Their customer service is great. They are never to tired to answer any of your questions. The shows I have created have open up the floodgates of my creativity. I have been with then for more than a year. When you purchased their program you are allow free upgrade for one year.

They also have their own website which allows you to share your shows with others if you desire. On the their website you may join contest in order to compete with others who submit their own shows.

They are great. I am so happy I found this program.
