Boinx Software releases FotoMagico 2.5
New version features Adobe Lightroom support, YouTube export and
Munich, Germany–July 26th, 2008. Boinx Software introduced today
FotoMagico 2.5, its award-winning photo presentation tool for
professional photographers. Recently honored with the Apple Design
Award (ADA) 2008 – “Best Mac OS X Leopard Graphics and Media
Application Runner-up”, the new 2.5 version of FotoMagico now features
support for Adobe Lightroom libraries, a teleprompter that shows notes
for every slide on a presenter’s display and a new export option for
uploading slideshow videos directly to YouTube.
“We want to thank thousands of users who take part on our public beta
program and gave feedback to make FotoMagico even better”, says Oliver
Breidenbach, co-founder of Boinx Software. “We are dedicated to making
FotoMagico the premier slidehows tool on the Mac, two Apple Design
Awards are proof that we are on the right track.”
“With FotoMagico 2.5, keeping your audience at the edge of their
seats with a great show is now as easy for Adobe Lightroom users as
it was for Aperture and iPhoto users before”, says Peter Baumgartner,
lead-developer and “father” of FotoMagico. “The teleprompter enables a
Steve Jobs-like performance for everybody and sharing shows with a
global audience was never easier than with the new YouTube export option.”
Adobe Lightroom Support
FotoMagico 2.5 now supports the iMedia Browser framework. With the
integrated iMedia Browser users can now seamlessly access GarageBand
songs, iLife sound effects and their media libraries not only from iTunes,
iPhoto and Aperture (Pro version) but also from other software including
Adobe Lightroom (Pro version).
With the new teleprompter of FotoMagico 2.5 Pro users can show their
photos on one display and read their notes for every slide on another.
Nicely animated, they get a preview showing which pictures come next
and can even jump back and forth to every slide in the storyboard with
just a click of the mouse.
The Sharing Assistant feature adds a new export option, allowing to
upload photo presentation videos directly to YouTube to reach a global
audience. Video encoding for YouTube can be accelerated with the
powerful Turbo.264 video encoder hardware from Elgato.
