Boinx FotoMagico 1.8: Slide Shows for Aperture Users

Use Aperture Libraries

FotoMagico 1.8 knows how to read Aperture's library format (Aperture 1.5 or later) and can display images stored in Apple's professional photo management tool in the Images tab for easy use in a FotoMagico slideshow. This easy integration offers Aperture users a compelling path to great photo presentations.

New From Template

To make it easier for the user to create slide shows with correct settings for the final presentation destination, a "New with Template" command has been added. The users chooses from the most popular scenarios, including "Live Presentation on a Mac", "DVD on Television", "Live Presentation on a Projector" and others, and FotoMagico sets up the project automatically. This makes it a lot easier to get the settings for stage size and export right.

Built-in Store

Another new thing is the "Buy now..." menu item which guides you to the closest outlet based on your system's region setting. Customers from the US for example may use the built-in Kagi Store while customers from Germany, Austria and Switzerland will be directed to Application Systems Heidelberg.
