Imaging software developer Magix has released the 2019 version of its Photostory Deluxe slideshow application that it says is completely redesigned, easier to use and much faster than before. The company has used the engine from its Video Pro X movie editing program to run Photostory Deluxe, so it can now handle up to 16 tracks of effects to create more interesting presentations.

Magix says that the process of creation is also much faster, and a new Effects Assistant makes it simpler to apply and control transitions, music and photo looks to the slideshow and the images it contains. The program offers 1500 effects, pieces of music and sounds for users to choose from, while 24 pre-set styles are available to jazz up your images.

Users can also match the color and tonal atmosphere of two or more images to create a consistent feel to a slideshow, or import third-party pictures or movies to copy styles from external sources. Looks, styles and effects can be applied to single images or groups of selected images simultaneously to speed up the process, and now GIF files can also be used alongside high-resolution stills and 4K video. Shaky video can be stabilized using the system borrowed from the company’s proDAD Mercalli V2, and further updates to the program can be added to the application for free over the course of the first year.

Magix Photostory Deluxe 2019 is available now and costs £59.99/ $69.99. For more information visit the Photostory pages on the Magix website.
