(Vocus/PRWEB ) -- Showing slideshows in itself used to be an event, a gathering of family and friends sharing moments captured on film. In the past this would require the purchasing of a screen, a projector, slides that were expensive to develop, and of course the time to put together the show. As technology developed, and we entered the digital age people began to explore new possibilities with their digital media. According to several studies, people have found organizing their digital photos much easier than dealing with their non-digital ones. Other studies have found that with the relative ease of use that and low cost of many digital cameras has led to a proliferation of personal digital photographs in many people’s collections.

MAGIX has created PhotoStory on CD & DVD 9 deluxe with this in mind-making organizing, preserving, and presenting your memories and only taking three minutes to do it.
