Boinx Software (http://www.boinx.com) has released version 3.6 of FotoMagico, the slideshow creation tool for Mac OS X. The upgrade adds MediaBrowser 2 integration and updated Flickr support.
The new iMediaBrowser 2 framework and interface sports expanded media libraries support for media browsing and locating capabilities, as well as added support for Flickr browsing directly within the application. A new “Linked to Slides” audio option provides users with the ability to link audio and soundtrack to specific slides, or allows it to move throughout the entire show.
In addition, users can now purchase the FotoMagico Remote iPhone app for US$4.99 (reduced from $19.99). With two Apple Design Awards under its belt, FotoMagico continues to impress users in version 3.6 with product updates and enhancements.
Version 3.6 also comes complete with a variety of product enhancements and bug fixes for a more streamlined workflow and expanded customization capabilities. For example, there’s improved reliability of the plug-in installation in the setup assistant and a new 27-inch Cinema Display option in the New Document assistant that isplays your slideshows in a “big” new way. Slideshows exported to YouTube can now be up to 15 minutes long, compared to the previous 10-minute length, while exporting slideshows to your iPad takes half the time with added support for the Elgato turbo.264 HD stick.
FotoMagico 3.6 Pro (including PhotoPresenter 4) is available for $149. A multi-license package is also available for $269.
The update to FotoMagico 3.6 is free of charge for existing FotoMagico 3.x owners at their current license levels. A built-in assistant will guide users through the process of acquiring the proper license. Existing FotoMagico 2.x owners at their current license levels can upgrade to FotoMagico 3.6 Pro for $89. Commercial multi-user license discounts are available upon request.
