hoto Slideshow Maker 3.0 is the latest version of this shareware program developed by Keronsoft. We can purchase the product from their site. There is also a downloadable free trial version available from the developer’s website. We can evaluate the product for 15 days, although the trial period can end before if we process up to 10 pictures. It provides all the necessary tools to organize our digital photos and favorite audio files and convert them to MPEG-4 video format, to be played later on our iPod devices. From the Main Window, we just click on the add button, select the photos anywhere in our system directory, including drivers and external devices. Once uploaded, we can preview them in the big window on the right, apply transitions effects, and select a display mode. There are 170 different effects, such as appear and contract, bar in, blind, crisscross reveal, curve reveal, diagonal sweep, expand, fade, push and many more. We can save our work and preview it. From the Image tab, we go to the audio tab, and add one or several mp3 files or no sound at all. As with the images, we can add, remove, clear, and play the music files. We must set up the conversion options (output format and output file) and press ok. It runs under Windows.
