MAGIX Slideshow Maker 2
Quickly create quality slideshows and share them with the world

MAGIX Slideshow Maker 2 is an easy-to-use tool that will quickly transform your chosen digital photos into a stylish slideshow, then publish it at Facebook, Flickr or YouTube.

The program comes in the form of a wizard, which essentially breaks down the slideshow creation process into three steps.

First, you must select the photos you'd like to use, and decide how long you'd like each image to be on screen before the next appears.

Next, you're able to customise the presentation of your slideshow. You can tweak the transitions Slideshow Maker will use (cuts, fades, 3D rotations and more), select your preferred effects (pans, zooms, rotations, collages and so on), add custom credits and titles, and even apply background music (the program comes with five soundtrack options, but you can also add your own audio file - all the main formats are supported).

And once you're happy with the results, it's just a matter of choosing how you're going to share them with the world. The program can export your slideshow directly to a free online MAGIX album, or publish it directly to your YouTube, Flickr or Facebook account. Or, if you'd like a local copy, then you can also export it as a WMV video in either web (640x480) or DVD (720x576) quality.

Please note, while Slideshow Maker 2.0 is free, you must register it with MAGIX within 7 days of installation to continue using the program.

Verdict:

An excellent application that will quickly transform your favourite photos into a polished, professional slideshow

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
