Photo Slideshow Maker Platinum is a professional software application built specifically for helping you create Flash slideshows which include videos and images.

It sports a clean and straightforward layout that offers quick access to the files and folders stored in the computer, so you can easily select the items to be included in the slideshow. Plus, it offers support for the “drag and drop” option.

Photo Slideshow Maker Platinum gives users the possibility to select between various transition effects (e.g. fade to blue, explosion, fade in), and customize the text messages in terms of color, font, size, and blurring options.

The application comes packed with various preset themes to choose from and lets you create custom ones. Plus, you can add background music (MP3, WMA, WAV), trim the audio files, and rip tracks from audio CDs.

There are several preset modes (e.g. “Basic,” “Professional,” “Web album,” “3D”) designed to help you create different projects which can be exported to SWF, HTML, or XML file format.
