PRESS RELEASE: Make "Wow!" Presentations without Doing Anything
MOSCOW, Russia - September 10, 2007: FirmTools today announces "Photo MC 1.0", a new software product add-on for Windows Explorer. Once installed, it lets you view and organize images instantly without stepping out of the Explorer window to run additional mammoth software. But the coolest function in it is a pan-and-zoom slide show, allowing you to create gorgeous photo presentations without doing anything.
Today there are many photo editing and manipulation applications out there with the costly hi-tech gorillas at the top of the heap. But even the most simple of consumer-oriented photograph software still requires you to first run it, then load in the images you want to make a presentation from and then you probably have to read the manual on how to make this all work. But most of us don't want to mess around with complex and sluggish software. So wouldn't it be nice if there was a dead-simple way to make a presentation with background music or narration without you doing anything? Well, there is now and it's called FirmTools Photo Master of Ceremonies!
To make a presentation, download images from the camera or, if you've already done so, find the folder with them on the computer, click on any file and it'll open in enhanced Windows Explorer with the PhotoMC toolbar on top. Specify the folder with the music files for background playback once; click a single button to start the slide show presentation and the fun begins. Slowly and gracefully you zoom into the photo, the photographic details grow more prominent, making a breathtaking effect as if you were pulled into the realm behind the screen! The show goes on, and you dive into yet another photo, this time displayed from a different camera angle. This spectacular show continues until the presentation is over.
The pan-and-zoom slide show is aimed at everyday, casual digital camera owners who want to view their photos or demonstrate them to guests, friends or relatives. Or, it could as well be used in showrooms for showcasing products on monitors or just to create the picture for a business presentation.
In addition to the automatic slide show, you can go through the images at your own pace by simply clicking and viewing them in the normal mode. When you do so, you can zoom in for more detail and rotate images to accommodate those you took in portrait or landscape positions.
Be a smart digital camera owner and make "Wow!" presentations without doing anything!
