This is the seventh generation version of the Magix classic slideshow maker. Yes, the name might be a bit long and have a few too many Xs in it, but be not fooled, it’s not only hype; there is some real substance to this story (pun intended).

It’s really the improvements in functionality that makes PhotoStory 7 better than it’s predecessor. The new ­PhotoStory comes with a brand new user interface that makes it easier to access all the features you’ll need to ­create effects, animations and camera movement. New ­functions, like the ability to create panoramas using multiple photos from the media pool, make using PhotoStory 7 easier and more intuitive.

Once you’re finished with your slideshow, burning it to CD or DVD can be done directly from the program, and without any complex steps ­­inbetween. PhotoStory 7 is also compatible with some of the latest technologies, ­including Blu-ray.

Get it for R1160 (incl VAT) from or call them on 011-450-4578.   

Drag-and-drop functionality is a very good feature.
It lacks some graphics and design tools found in other photo slideshow programmes.
