People who give presentations aren’t the only ones who benefit from slideshows. Slideshows can be make out of pictures, or even video files. And one shareware that allows us to do so is Ashampoo Slideshow Studio HD. Clicking here will take you to this page:
To download the program, click on the green button that says ‘Download.’ The setup file is 21 MB in size, which isn’t too large for such a program.
Normally, this product from Ashampoo is a shareware; however for a limited time, Ashampoo is offering internet users to register themselves here for a free key for this software.
Once Ashampoo processes your information, you will be sent an email which will include a link where you are required to fill in the details. Notice the language is German. But with a little common sense, it’s easy to figure out what goes where. Submitting the information here will take you to another Ashampoo page where you will be logged in. Here’s how it should look like:
The registration key can be obtained by clicking on the ‘My free reg. keys’ on the left. Save the key to enter into the Slideshow Studio later. The next step is to run the setup file which was downloaded earlier and install the trial version. The program, when running, looks like this:
The registration key can be fed into the program by clicking on the ‘MyAshampoo’ button at the top and then clicking on ‘Register Ashampoo Slideshow Studio’ in the drop down menu. Once done, you will be all set to create slideshows.
And not just any slideshows.
The user is able to select from a range of great themes; even HD video quality is supported, up to 1080p resolution; slideshows can be created using videos hosted on websites such as Youtube and Myvideo; and multiple audio/music files can be added to accompany the slides.
But the feature that impressed me most was the ability to burn one’s slides on to a DVD which can then be viewed on a simple DVD player. This makes it possible to creatively produce a slideshow of family photos (accompanied by your favorite music) or videos, burn it to a DVD, and show it to the whole family on your TV via a DVD player.
The golden opportunity of obtaining this shareware as a freeware should not be missed. Mastering this user-friendly software is easy and once done so, impressive slideshows can be made for whatever purpose one desires.
