I have had the pleasure of working with MAGIX software Photostory Easy the past week. It is just that very “EASY” and is a super alternative to your current slideshow editor. The interface is extremely user friendly specifically if you aren’t familiar with slideshow editing.
I picked it up in about 5 minutes and was off creating a slide show right after install. One thing I really enjoyed was being able to drag and drop images to the workspace without having to import the media into a media gallery, like you would with many other slideshow editors out there. I being a photographer will find this an extremely useful tool in my workflow.
Ironically I found myself lacking original music for my slideshow. Low and behold MAGIX had the solution for me here as well with the free Music Maker Jam app for Windows 8. I was able to create a super cool and ORIGINAL track from the “Rock” plugin. That will eventually be used as a video podcast lead in.
5 stars out of 5 in my book for both softwares
