FotoMagico Launches Public Beta for Version 2


Boinx Software has released a public beta of the redesigned FotoMagico to garner user feedback before making the final version available. Major improvements in 2.0 include the ability to create a standalone player for your presentations, watermark capability, fresh user interface, and performance enhancements.

Oliver Breidenbach of Boinx Software comments, "FotoMagico 2 enters the Public Beta testing phase. FotoMagico 2 represents a significant step forward by introducing high resolution, standalone slideshow players that can be shared with people who do not have a license for FotoMagico. In order to test this new capability thoroughly, FotoMagico 2 is now available as a public beta with a final release planned for March, 2007."

You can download the public beta today and give it a spin. Be sure to let Boinx know what you like and what needs improvement.

This program looks very intersting. Unfortunatly it only sees iPhoto libraries unless you pay for the pro version, then it will see the Aperture library as well. As I do not have an iPhoto library I cannot try it :(

I think the best improvement is allowing the selection of other color backgrounds besides just black, grays or white.

It now should make chroma keying much easier when compositing photos with alpha channels with moving backgrounds in Final Cut.

If only Boinx allowed the option for a movie loop to run in the background of each slide, it would be the top notch presentation software.

Does the stand alone player work cross platform? I've been wanting to share my slideshows and DVD is not an option.

Any details would be appreciated.
