PRESS RELEASE: Photodex® Releases ProShow® 4.1 with New Facebook®, Vimeo® & Twitter™ Uploading
Austin, TX, December 10, 2009 - Photodex Corporation has released ProShow 4.1, the latest version of its award-winning photo and video slide show software for Windows. ProShow 4.1 makes it easy for users to get their slide shows online and in front of friends, family or clients with new integrated uploading to Facebook, Vimeo and Twitter. Version 4.1 also features an all-new Slide Style Manager and dozens of new, user requested features that help make ProShow better than ever.
"We know what a huge part social networking sites play in our customer's lives. It's a place for them to communicate with friends, family and even reach out to potential clients. That's why we integrated uploading to these sites directly into ProShow 4.1 and made it a very simple and quick process", said Paul Schmidt, President and Founder of Photodex Corporation.
Users with Facebook and Vimeo accounts can now directly upload their slide shows from ProShow Gold or Producer 4.1 to their profile. Slide shows are sent in video format in either normal quality or high definition. Once a new slide show has been uploaded, it can be automatically announced on Twitter using ProShow 4.1's new Twitter feature. ProShow automatically creates a new tweet announcing a show upload and provides a link for followers to view it. URLs are automatically shortened and a personalized message can be sent with each tweet.
Other notable updates in ProShow 4.1 include a newly designed Slide Style Manager which allows users to quickly sort, filter and manage styles in their personal libraries. Users accessing large libraries of Slide Styles will experience greatly improved speed when loading the Slide Styles dialog and previewing complex styles. ProShow 4.1 also includes dozens of new, user requested features including time-saving additions in the Slide Options dialog, new Theora video output, improvements to the Layers and Captions lists and more.
