“Tips & Tricks using ProShow Gold & Producer”
These two slide show programs from PhotoDex are probably used by more Professional Photographers than any other. One reason is the tremendous range of options they offer for both input (75 image formats including RAW and output directly from Lightroom + 23 video formats) and output formats (40+). A common problem using a program like this infrequently is forgetting the process. We’ll discuss using a standard workflow to create repeatable results time after time. We’ll also demonstrate the use of an inexpensive morphing program to add interest and wow to a growing-up series of photos. Discount coupons will be available to purchase new or updated versions of either program, and a full version of ProShow Producer ($249.95) will be given away.
