San Francisco, CA (December 10, 2003) Simple Star, Inc., the creators of easy to use consumer software, announced today the release of PhotoShow Deluxe 2.5. With PhotoShow Deluxe 2.5, powerful new features enable users to get more enjoyment from their digital photos than ever before.

In addition, PhotoShow Deluxe 2.5 enables even new users to easily create and share musical shows with their digital photos and music.
"PhotoShow Deluxe 2.5 offers the best way for consumers to get the most out of their digital photos whether they are novice photographers or experienced users," said Chad Richard, chief executive officer of Simple Star. "With the popularity of digital cameras exploding, it's never been more important to make powerful yet easy to use photo software available to consumers.

In addition to the release of PhotoShow Deluxe 2.5, Simple Star has also released two new animated clip art theme packs that can be used to enhance photos and musical slide shows.
