FotoMagico 4 from Boinx Software is the brainchild of computer engineer and passionate photographer Peter Baumgartner. The software helps you to create impressive digital slideshows using pictures and videos that you can easily share by choosing one of the many export presets for iPad, iPhone, web or DVD.
I've been making slideshow videos in the past by importing pictures in Avid Media Composer and FCP and using keyframes and all kinds of different controls to animate the pictures. With both editing applications I've run into different problems when trying to use it for this purpose. With both you have to control everything with lots of keyframes and filters which leads to great render times before you are able to see any results. FotoMagico 4 on the other hand is specifically tailored for fast and easy creation of professional looking slideshows that will help you to tell your story. And it's not just for pictures. You can also add videos, making it very versatile!

I decided to get my hands dirty and create a slideshow with FotoMagico 4 with some of my randomly picked photographs. The resulting slideshow can be seen here:
FotoMagico 4 is really easy to use and you can have as many or as little control over your slides as you please. The automatic features of FotoMagico 4 are really impressive and give you great results instantly. Creating videos by using pictures has never been easier or fun with true professional results.
