Apimac on Tuesday announced the release of
Slide Show 7, a Mac OS X and Windows application you can use to show multimedia files, movies, sounds and images. Slide Show 7 costs US$29.95 for the Standard Edition and $49.95 for the Professional Edition.
Slide Show lets you create presentations that can be manually or automatically controlled; you can personalize the backgrounds with colored images and patterns, use multiple soundtracks, and show images and movies along with their name. It supports myriad file formats, and also has the ability to show IPTC tags (image metadata) along with the file name during the presentation.
New to this release is support for Unicode (UTF-8) text encoding. The interface is improved, and the application now has a new “metal” look. The Windows version is also new to this release. Other changes have been made under the hood.
The Professional Edition adds the ability to create standalone presentations that can be run on Windows.
System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.2 or later and QuickTime 6.0 or later.
