FotoMagico for Mac

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Mar 7, 2013

Making a beautiful slideshow personalized enough not to resemble any other might be harder than it seems. For people looking for some customization options while keeping things simple to use, FotoMagico for Mac might be the solution. However, it comes with a rather hefty price tag.

FotoMagico for Mac can import images from iPhoto, Aperture and Lightroom to integrate with the photographer's workflow. The documentation is rich enough to get you started in minutes. The strong point of this software is clearly its interface. It's well thought out and really intuitive, and everything behaves exactly as expected. Drag-and-drop is supported in most places and multitouch trackpad gestures work as they would on an official Apple app. It is indeed really hard not to draw a comparison between this software and the well-known iLife suite, particularly iPhoto and iMovie. The main advantage of this app over the Apple ones is the added customization and different approach in the "in-pictures" effect, namely between two transitions. Unlike Adobe Flash, you simply define the initial and the final stage for your pictures and the program will animate accordingly. There are enough transitions, but sadly there seem to be no filters or special effects available to apply to your pictures or short clips in the demo version. The demo version also comes with a watermark, which is not present in a purchased version.

With its great user interface and added flexibility for animating pictures, FotoMagico for Mac is most suited for users who are creating slideshows regularly and are looking for some more customization options than offered in Apple's iLife.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of FotoMagico for Mac 4.2.
