Flinders Ranges is the largest mountain range in South Australia – so large that only FotoMagico’s pan and zoom effect could begin to encompass it’s magnificence. Melbourne, Australia resident Barry Povey went to the Flinders Ranges to explore the beauty around him and created a slideshow with FotoMagico 4 to put the ranges on display for all to see. He even incorporates stunning paintings of his surroundings into the slideshow for a truly surreal effect.
“I have upgraded from FotoMagico 3 and am exploring new features and how I might use them. Here is my first YouTube video using the share facility within FotoMagico,” Barry says. “Wow. It was so easy… It is a simple presentation. I just loved how easy it is now to insert audio markers so precisely."
Barry is an enthusiastic photographer occupying retired life with photography and associated technologies as well as time exploring the spaciousness of "outback" Australia. Lucky Barry!! Thanks for sharing your corner of the world with us!

Keir Ansell writes: "The best feature is FotoMagico's ability to use full resolution photo's rather than compressing them to the point where the quality is terrible (which is what iPhoto/iMovie/Aperture does). Very easy to use, and I was also able to produce a slideshow at my Retina MacBook Pro's resolution which just looks fantastic!"

Scott says about FotoMagico 4: "So simple and easy to use. Adding photos, music, changing transitions and timings was all so easy and intuitive. Once finished, exporting for multiple uses such as web based or mobile device was a breeze. A very quick and easy process."

When world famous photographer Mikkel Aaland wanted to meet me in Munich to discuss "an interesting project," I was very excited. Mikkel was on his way from San Francisco to Graz in Austria and stopped in Munich to visit some friends when he took the opportunity to meet with me and Peter (our resident graphic artist) for breakfast.
"I am trying to help photographers through the next major shift in their business," he told us. "And I am going to use FotoMagico to do it." He went on to discuss his embracing of digital photography after meeting Ansel Adams in the early 80's and learning about space photography - the first application of digital photography.
Mikkel went on to say, "The next major thing for photographers is video. And they are more wary of it than they were of digital still photography. So, it's best to introduce them to it through something familiar. Making slideshows is a good way to learn about the basics of video. Photographers are able to take something they know and add a new dimension to it, thereby dipping their toes into the unkown waters."
After thoroughly picking our brains Mikkel went on his way to Graz to record his brand new video course, "Creating Dynamic Slideshows with FotoMagico & Photoshop," now available through video2brain.com. This in-depth workshop takes you through all the ins and outs of FotoMagico and Photoshop - from choosing effective transitions, to using pan and zoom techniques to bring your stills to life, selectively adding video and motion directly inside a still image, and much more.

Charlotte Biesse, a Toronto-based baby photographer, recently used FotoMagico to create an elegant, cross platform solution for a user-friendly, mobile version of her website - www.rainboweleven.com. "With virtually no effort I dragged in my high resolution portfolio jpgs, added my music and used the Instant Slideshow feature," says Charlotte. "Awesome... especially for someone who's more interested in being behind the camera, not in front of the screen. It was super easy, quick and painless."
