7861_300FotoMagico is much more than a slideshow presenter. With it you can make professional presentations that include music, photos, animation, video, text, titling, beautiful transitions, and more. One of its best features is the ability to export your slideshows in an array of formats: DVD, Blu-Ray, iOS, Apple TV, YouTube, and several others. With the Pro version, you can even save a copy of your presentation as standalone, self-playing file that doesn’t need the FotoMagico application to run. Imagine the convenience of taking your presentation to a venue on a flash drive and using their computer (running Mac OS X 10.10 or 10.11) to show it — no resident application required.
