The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 3.4
PhotoStage is a slideshow creator. Even though it is quite light (only a five-megabyte download), the tool is rather complete and represents a valid alternative for other tools, including Windows Movie Maker.
The application has a nice interface, although it might need some retouches to make it look trendier. It is similar to other tools of the same kind in many aspects. There’s a screen space reserved for a media library, a timeline where you drag those objects to and a player to preview the results of your work. Therefore, if you´re already familiar with this type of software, you can start using it right away without even consulting the online help.

The application supports creating a library by importing video, images and sounds, and luckily, practically any format is allowed. This is possible because the tool can automatically download missing codecs. Also, if you´re not willing to spend much time creating your slideshow, there´s an easy way by which you can import a complete folder.

Once you´ve finished importing, you can proceed to place the objects in the timeline. This is when you can also add transitions, embed text, include a background sound track and even record a narration. Unfortunately, the application doesn’t come with as many transition effects as other similar tools. On the other hand, multiple editing operations can be done, which include cropping, applying filters, zooming, adjusting image parameters, etc.

As to sharing options, PhotoStage is quite extensive. In this respect, you can export the resulting video to different kinds of discs, including Blu-ray. Likewise, you can upload it to various online services and social networks, such as YouTube, Flickr, Facebook and Google+. Moreover, it is possible to create video sequences specifically configured to avoid compatibility issues with portable devices. Last but not least, you can produce video files to be played on a computer using a very wide range of output formats. And if you don´t have the means to play a video, you can always export your slides as an image sequence.

In general, PhotoStage is an excellent slideshow maker that is appropriate for any kind of user. It produces elegant results with little effort on your side. And, although it has many features, they can be expanded by installing other supplementary products by the same developer.

Pros

  • It is relatively easy to use.
  • It supports multiple input formats.
  • It creates elegant slideshows.
  • It allows sharing the results in various ways.
  • It lets you record a narration.
  • It is light.
  • The free version can be used almost without limitations.

Cons

  • The number of transition effects is small compared to other similar software.

    I spent several days making a vacation slideshow. After adding a few basic effects (Zoom in/out), it now wants to cut off the bottom portion of my picture and move it to the top whenever I add any kind of zoom. Don't know why it was working properly and then it went to this. I now have a slideshow, I have days invested in, but I cannot add any more effects. Very disappointing.

    I have put a beautiful slideshow together that took me about 3 days. When I saved it as an AVI file, the pictures would get stuck on certain parts while the music kept playing. I was furious not about spending the money to buy the program but more about spending all that time putting it together. And then to have it come out with glitches was very frustrating.
    I did, however, re-save my project as a .mov file and it was perfect. Smooth, no glitches, I was very happy. So you guys might want to try saving it as a .mov file. It worked for me
