Aquafadas ( has updated BannerZest, a flash
presentation tool for professional and amateur web designers, to
version 2.0. The upgrade adds 10 new banner themes (of which three
are exclusive to the Pro version), the ability to add a sound file,
the ability to publish a banner in a single .swf file (Pro version
only), the addition of theme presets and the ability to publish
banners in an iPhone compatible format (Pro version only).

With BannerZest you can turn your pictures into a flash slideshow.
BannerZest doesn’t require you to know or even possess Flash,
according to the folks at Aquafadas. It uses the concept of themes,
which work like templates.

BannerZest comes in two versions: a standard edition (US$49) and a
pro version ($129). The Pro version has all the features of the
standard version, plus some advanced editing options, workflow
enhancements and specific pro templates.

Customers who purchased BannerZest on or after Aug. 1 will receive a
complimentary upgrade. Otherwise upgrades may be purchased at the
Aquafadas web site at the special price of $19 for standard and $49
for pro version until Oct. 4. BannerZest requires Mac OS X 10.5
(“Leopard”) or 10.6 (“Snow Leopard”).
