The problem with most photo slideshow programs is that you have to have them installed on any machine that you plan to display your slideshow on. Fortunately, there are ways to solve this problem, such as PicturesToExe Deluxe. This easy-to-use program lets you create custom slideshows and package them in a variety of different formats that can run anywhere.

The program's interface is plain and intuitive. The multipane layout makes it easy to navigate to the desired directory and add images to the slideshow via drag and drop. You can customize slideshows by adding a variety of transition effects, changing slide background colors, selecting how long each image will appear, and in other ways. The program also has some fairly advanced options for custom animations that pan, zoom, and rotate images; we had to consult the PDF User Guide for some help with these features, but they weren't difficult to figure out once we'd consulted the program's thorough documentation.

The best thing about PicturesToExe Deluxe was the multitude of options it presents for saving your slideshows. These include executable files for both Mac and PC; AVI, MP4, DVD, and Apple mobile device video formats; and screensavers. PicturesToExe Deluxe will even upload your slideshows directly to your YouTube or Facebook account. Overall, we found PicturesToExe Deluxe to have an impressive array of features for creating and sharing your slideshows. We were quite pleased with the performance of both the software and the slideshows we made with it, and we recommend it.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of PicturesToExe Deluxe 7.0.6. The trial version is limited to 30 days.

Developer's Description

PicturesToExe Deluxe allows you to create impressive photo and video slideshows for PC, Mac, DVD, and YouTube. Add images and video clips together with all effects: Pan/Zoom/Rotate, 3D transformations, masks, shadows. PicturesToExe can use source media files without conversion. No need to wait to see the result of your work. PicturesToExe Deluxe also is an excellent choice for advanced users and for wedding photographers. PicturesToExe Deluxe provides the user with all the necessary tools to create a great-looking photo/video slideshow or documentary.

Extensive functionality of PicturesToExe Deluxe has already been appreciated all around the world. This is especially true for the UK and France, where PicturesToExe has become the first choice for creating audio-visual shows for international festivals and local competitions. PicturesToExe Deluxe creates an executable file with your slideshow in a few seconds that does not require any additional program to run the slideshow (even PicturesToExe itself is not necessary). The slideshow can be accompanied by sound or text comments to each slide or by any music file from your collection. The timeline with a waveform facilitates the synchronization of the pictures to the background music. You can easily record voice comments to slides right in PicturesToExe.

If there is a need for demonstrating a slideshow on a Mac, PicturesToExe Deluxe can create an executable file for the Mac too. The program can burn a DVD disc, produce HD video files, video for iPhone and iPad. Publish slideshows on YouTube and Facebook.
