gPhotoShow Pro allows users to create multimedia screensavers and slideshows. The program works well, although it doesn't have any particular features that make it stand out among similar programs.
The interface is fairly straightforward, and although it is not immediately obvious how to get started, it's not hard to figure it out with a bit of exploration. Users select photos, video, music, or other media from their computer to be included in the slideshow or screensaver. From there, it's easy to set the screensaver as the default for the user's computer, or save it for distribution elsewhere. Slideshows can also be used elsewhere, even on computers that don't have gPhotoShow installed. Overall we found the interface quite easy to navigate, and we created screensavers and slideshows with ease. The built-in Help file contains detailed directions and screenshots for users who need assistance. gPhotoShow does not have any features that really wowed us, but it is easy to use and does what one would expect of such a program. It does include a wide array of transitions and display options, and it offers multimonitor support. Users should have no trouble customizing their screensavers and slideshows to get them exactly how they want them.
gPhotoShow Pro has a 30-day trial and it displays text to that effect on the screensavers and slideshows. The program installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users who are looking for an easy way to make good-looking screensavers and slideshows.
gPhotoShow Pro is an easy to use make-your-own photo slide show or screen saver. It can display an unlimited number of images, video, panoramic images, flash animations (swf files) and web pages. gPhotoShow can also create professional looking standalone slideshows/screen savers that can be sent by email or cd and run on any windows based computer. gPhotoShow Pro is the perfect software to create digital Photo Frames.
