Boinx Software announces FotoMagico 2.6

New version adds Adobe Lightroom 2 support and free FotoMagico Plug-in for Aperture

Munich, Germany — October 23rd, 2008. Boinx Software announced today FotoMagico 2.6, an update to its award-winning photo presentation software for professional photographers. The new 2.6 version of FotoMagico Pro now also supports Adobe Lightroom 2 libraries and comes with an plug-in for Aperture, enabling photographers to select their photos from within Aperture and to export them directly to FotoMagico.

“FotoMagico always was the premier photo slideshow tool on the Mac. Professional photographers treasure its fine-granular controls for creative storytelling", says Oliver Breidenbach, co‐founder of Boinx Software. "With the new version 2.6, which is a free update for all FotoMagico 2 users, we further deepend the integration with the two leading photo workflow solutions from Adobe and Apple."

"The Aperture Plug-in provides the missing link in my workflow", says Derrick Story, Author of The Photoshop CS4 Companion for Photographers. "Now I can select the images for my slideshow in Aperture, and the plugin automatically creates a FotoMagico document with them. Very nice."

Adobe Lightroom 2 Support

In addition to iPhoto, Aperture and Lightroom 1 libraries, FotoMagico 2.6 (Pro version only) now also supports libraries of the new Adobe Lightroom 2. With the integrated iMedia Browser users can also seamlessly access GarageBand songs, iLife sound effects and media libraries from iTunes or media files from any other folder on their hard disk.

FotoMagico Plug-in for Aperture

The new FotoMagico Plug-in for Aperture allows photographers to select the pictures in Aperture and export them to FotoMagico to create stunning animated photo presentations with transitions, titles and more. A photographer can now access his Aperture library from the iMedia Browser from within FotoMagico, or the other way around -- send a selection of pictures from Aperture to FotoMagico. The FotoMagico Plug- in for Aperture is part of FotoMagico 2.6 and also available as a free download at http://boinx.com/download.
