To the Guy that recommended ProShow Gold by PhotoDex

by MsDoright / December 29, 2008 9:11 AM PST

A few months ago, I asked a question regarding the recommended size photo that should be used when creating a photo DVD slide show for a widescreen TV. During that thread, a guy recommended ProShow Gold.

Whoever you are, I CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH!! After about a month of fighting Nero and the 3rd Nero crash in one day, I downloaded the ProShow Gold trial. I figured adjusting to a new program couldn't be as bad as losing half a slide show to a crash.

ProShow Gold works wonderfully. After fighting Nero and Creator for 10 years, creating a slide show is once again FUN! No more clean uninstalling and reinstalling when the software would crash or hang.

I regularly make hour long slide shows with 1000+ photos and music from our vacations plus five annual ones detailing a year in each of my grandchildren's life. (I'm a prolific photographer; not necessarily good. Kids don't care.) ProShow Gold handled it and never blinked. I'm certain it cut a week's time from the production of my latest DVD.

And the features... I was so excited that I didn't have to start an audio or video editor to do basic cuts and fades. The motions, transitions and caption options are more than plentiful.

And get this... I had a question and called the support line. An actual LIVE person answered the phone and my questions when I called. None of that "If you're standing on one leg and hopping, press 1" routine from PhotoDex. Plus... they spoke perfect American!

The features kick Nero's behind and I think I'm in love. I may just upgrade to Producer.

So, whoever you are.... THANK YOU ! THANK YOU ! THANK YOU ! You have truly changed my life by recommending ProShow Gold.

DISCLAIMER - Yes, I know I'm gushing and this sounds like a commercial, but, it's not. I don't work for PhotoDex or know anyone who does. I'd never heard of ProShow until this guy recommended it. I must admit I am a UT grad and PhotoDex is located in Austin, but, I didn't know that until I started to call support and noticed the (512) area code.

Sorry... I posted this in the wrong forum and before I actually figured out who it was that made the recommendation. I didn't realize that I could see my old tracked discussions until I posted this thread.

Hit me.. beat me.. I'm old and slow.

FYI - It was Snapshot2 who made the recommendation.

Pro Show Gold Classes
by seeburt / December 31, 2008 2:14 AM PST

I've been using this software for years and I love it. I'm not sure where you live, but here in Southern California, Covina to be exact, is and adult school called Tri-Community Photography (just google it and you'll find it), and they have several classes from begining to advanced, teaching PSG and Producer. Producer is PSG on steroids. It use to be the only program in the country teaching it. It was a under $100 for @8 3 hour classes.

I'll check out the web site and web search to see if I can find some similar classes near me (Atlanta). I'd love to have a class.

I can't believe I'd never even heard of this software and it is so very good.

Thanks !

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
