MAGIX PhotoStory on DVD 2013 Deluxe 12.0

Professional video editor to create DVD movies with your photos and video files
12.0.6 (See all)

MAGIX PhotoStory on DVD 2013 Deluxe is much more than the standard photo-to-video editing tool. It is a professional suite of tools that allows you to produce high-quality, pro-looking DVD and Blu-ray discs from your photo and video file collection. Its wide range of transition and visual effects will allow you to produce attractive slideshows and video compilations. As a bonus, MAGIX has thrown in three other high-quality editing tools – Music Editor 3, Photo Designer 7, and Xtreme Print Studio – to enhance your images and to create your own movie soundtracks.

As with many other MAGIX products, PhotoStory offers a plethora of features that may seem a bit overwhelming at times. It is true that it may take you a while to get to know all the possibilities the program offers, but the good news is that all the basic processes have a default or automated option. Thus, novice users – or those in a hurry – simply need to follow the logic of the program’s interface (structured as a wizard) to end up with a pro-looking, animated slideshow of their favorite shots. MAGIX PhotoStory offers you an intuitive timeline-based workspace, intro and outro templates to give a pro finish to your videos, one-click optimization tools, decorative elements, 2D and 3D transition effects, menu templates, automatic audio adjustment, titles editor, and many other simple yet professional features. Those with more experience and more time can enjoy all the editing possibilities that the program offers, and browse through all the image, audio, and video editing tools and effects provided.

Finally, and as mentioned above, together with its built-in editing possibilities, PhotoStory comes with some extra editing tools, specifically designed to help you edit and enhance your photographs and your audio streams, and to print professional booklets and photo albums.
