Do you want to create professional looking presentations of your digital images? Then SlideDirectorStudio is the right choice for you!

SlideDirectorStudio is a free and open source software package for creating slideshows of digital images. Yes, there are already a lot of programs like this, but SlideDirectorStudio offers possibilities that cannot be found in other products:

  • No fancy, but professional looking transition effects (fading, zooming, panning)
  • Show images in any resolution supported by your monitor and graphic card, including full HDTV resolution (1920 x 1080)
  • All effects are generated in real-time using hardware acceleration of a DirectX 9 compatible graphic card

If you want to show your pictures on a high resolution display (e.g. HDTV) then SlideDirectorStudio definitively is the right choice!

Other slideshow software either doesn't offer transition effects at all or requires to render a movie clip that has an awful low resolution (DVD quality) or requires huge CPU power to play back (HD WMV file).
