Photodex Corp. has added new functionality to its ProShow Web services, including 3D tilt effects and themes, new music categorization, automatic music syncing and more. Other highlights:
An automatic energy level ensuring photos and music end at the same time, without the awkward lingering or cutoffs, is now the default feature for creating new shows.
Importing photos into new shows is now easier as well. Along with the integration of popular photo sharing platforms Instragram and Flickr, the redesigned import service is now under the “Imagery” tab with third-party add buttons visibly available.
Improved music categorization has been implemented based on feedback from users. N ow in the music library, users can simply pick a category from a well organized list or select from a list of frequently used tracks.
The biggest change is how effects are handled when re-processing a show. Now, after a show is built for the first time, ProShow Web locks in a user’s effects. Unless a user removes them or specifically uses the Try Again button, ProShow Web will keep all effects intact. This lets users edit and tweak their slideshows without losing the effects ProShow Web has applied, but still provides an easy way to remix an entire show.
