New version adds Teleprompter, iMedia browser and YouTube export.
Boinx has released a public beta of a new version of FotoMagico, its story-telling tool for professional photographers. The new version includes several new features, among which are Teleprompter mode, integration of the iMedia Browser and YouTube export to name a few.
In an email to registered users, the company explained, "FotoMagico 2.5 is not final yet but we decided to release a Public Beta to let you have a look at the new features. The Public Beta is functional until the end of July. So grab your copy, give it a run and tell us what you think, we appreciate any feedback on the new version."
Highlights of the new features follow.
• Teleprompter. With the new teleprompter mode of FotoMagico 2.5 you can show your photos on one display and read your notes for every slide on another. Nicely animated, you get a preview showing which pictures comes next and can even jump back and forth to every slide in the storyboard with just a click of your mouse.
• iMedia Browser. With the integrated iMedia Browser users now can access their media libraries not only from iTunes, iPhoto and Aperture but also from from other software including Adobe Lightroom seamlessly.
• YouTube Export. The Sharing Assistant has a new YouTube option. It's now possible to export your photo presentation movie directly to YouTube.
You can download the 28.2MB public beta from http://boinx.com/fotomagico/beta/.
FotoMagico 2.5 Public Beta will expire on July 31.
