I work on high-end corporate meetings and PhotoPresenter is one of my most valuable tools. At a recent global event the client wanted four "slick" videos using POS materials and logos, etc. - overnight. We picked out some of themes, dropped the images in and had them done PDQ with little work in FinalCut. There is much more to image-driven presentations than dissolves, pans and zooms. Of course there are other programs that offer more control, but this one is fast and easy. All we want are more themes.

Bought this program while it was on sale. Not even worth the $10.95 that I paid. The program has very few slideshow designs, and those are not very impressive.

I have version 3.4. Do I have to upgrade for version 4.0.? I guess so... My old serial number does not work with the new version.

PhotoPresenter 4 is a free upgrade for everybody who purchased version 3.4 from Boinx Software. You should already have received an upgrade notice. If not please contact Boinx Software Sales and we will send you a new license.
There is a 14.95$ update fee for everybody who bought any version of PhotoPresenter before it was taken over by Boinx Software (versions 3.3 and earlier).
Hope this helps.

Wow! A whole $5 off for previous users.

Seriously, I own a few Boinx products and generally really like them. But their upgrade policies are... how should I say this politely... they stink!

I'm still mad about Fotomagico and how they wasted any good will with version 2 Pro users when they reamed us with the upgrade fee to version 3 Pro. Have a look at the comments for Fotomagico when they upgraded to version 3 and you will see what I mean.

In summary, generally really good products, but be prepared to fork out the moolah any time there is a "major" upgrade. In other words, they screw their current customers. At least that is how I see it... and no, I haven't upgraded Fotomagico.

The price for a single full license of PhotoPresenter 4.x is $29.

If you bought PhotoPresenter 3.4 from Boinx Software (which was released in September 2008) you will receive a FREE upgrade. That is a grace period of a lot more than a full year.

If you bought any earlier version of PhotoPresenter you can upgrade to 4.x for $14.95 (for a single user license). That is roughly half of the full price and a pretty good deal IMHO.

We also offer an upgrade to FotoMagico Pro (which includes PhotoPresenter 4) for only $99. That saves you $49 from the full price of FotoMagico.

Cheerio,

From the developer website: "Update from PhotoPresenter 3.4 to PhotoPresenter 4.x is free of charge for all customers that bought PhotoPresenter 3.4 from Boinx Software." I guess those who bought the application from any other site (such as MacUpdate Promo) will need to pay for this update.

I just saw this comment now, but anything we sell via MUPromo has identical license terms/upgrade opportunities as paying full price directly. Please let us know if you ever encounter any situation counter so we can ensure that the developer is respecting the terms of the offer. Thanks!

I have just downloaded and installed this application and purchased a Licence Key. To date, however, it has completely failed to display any sllde-show at all of my photos, despite repeated attempts. All it does when I press the "Play" button is turn my screen completely black and then crash, with the "Application Quit Unexpectedly" pop-up message appearing. Not at all inspiring. Have I just blown my AUD $25.00 ? Seems so. I am using an iMac7,1 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, running OSX Leopard 10.5.4.

I wrote to the Developer, who requested that I send him the Crash Logs from my Console. I did so and got the reply that I have a "broken font" and to de-install it. I responded that unless I knew WHICH font was broken, how on earth was I to know which font to de-install. I am yet to hear another word from the Developer. I paid good money (probably far too much) for this software and have not yet managed to get it to work for me even once ! In my view it is a lemon.

Obviously, the developers of PhotoPresenter sold there software to Boinx. Before that, the price of PhotoPresenter was at 8 $, now it's at 20 $. I just bought this app a few days ago.I would like the new developers to explain me what caused this huge increase in price.

The answer is simple: We think PhotoPresenter is worth much more than $19.95. So even at $19.95 it is a bargain.

I wonder why the previous developers (Arizona Software) sold PhotoPresenter to a very decent price and you do not. I bought two apps from them (PhotoPresenter, GraphClick) and I would not have done this at a higher price. So am looking forward to an overprized update to PhotoPresenter 4. Maybe PhotoPresenter 4 will cost 35 bucks?

Quit whining about the price. If it's too high for you, don't buy it. If the developer sees they are not generating sales because the price is too high, they might lower it. This is called MARKETING.

No one is forcing you to buy this software.

Start reading carefully! I already bought this application before PhotoPresenter was sold to Boinx. I'm not complaining about the price but about the unjustified increase in price.

It hate companies that buy apps just to increase the price. If Boinx had written more than a few lines of new code and brought that new version out as version 4, no one would have been complaining because of an increased price.

I'm quite sure that Boinx follows a steb by step increase in price. Arizona Software started at 8 $, Boinx continued at 20 $ whitout having done anything and will end at over 30 $ next year as PhotoPresenter 4 will be released.

Then again, when has a buyout ever been good news to the customer? Generally, it brings the indie developer's drive to innovate to a grinding halt and provides an easy cash cow to some indifferent outfit at the expense of both new and existing customers.

I'd love to see Boinx prove me wrong, but I agree that more than doubling the price while bringing nothing new to the table definitely sets them off at the wrong foot.

The last developers were student developers and were in a position to sell there app for much cheaper than other developers would. $8 was cheap for a cool consumer authoring tool. You don't see shareware for the mac come much cheaper. I'm fine with the $20 price upgrade. I just don't understand why they wouldn't add anything to it first!!! It' not like they're bad developers. I have Fotomagico. It's pretty slick. I'm amazed they wouldn't add a thing to Photopresenter before releasing it. Did they buy the app to develop it or just to charge more for it? Well, I know the answer. They want to develop for it. I don't think they're that scummy. I think they just got of on the wrong foot. They should of incorporated an impressive set of new features before upgrading the price. I would of figured Boinx just wanted Photopresenter to implement some of it's features into Fotomagico and swallow up as much of Photopresenter's user base as possible, but it seems they're keeping Photopresenter in tact; which is cool, but they really need to pump it up with some new features to justify the new price. That's not to say the price isn't fair; I think it is, I just don't think you should take an app and double the price without doing a thing to it.

I am very happy about the attention the PhotoPresenter acquisition has brought us. Thanks for all your comments, which will help us to determine the future of PhotoPresenter.
By our careful calculations, an $8 app is not going to be able to finance the ongoing development and marketing necessary to move it forward. In fact, $8 would barely cover the costs of selling that can't be avoided (credit card processing, customer sales support, invoicing, book keeping...) An $8 app can be a good surplus income for an individual developer, but there is no way a professional developer can break even on $8.

"By our careful calculations, an $8 app is not going to be able to finance the ongoing development and marketing necessary to move it forward."

The issue that many people may take (and in fact already have taken) with this statement is that no substantial "moving forward" has actually occurred before you raised the price of this product. It may be financially beneficial for you to raise funds ahead of development effort, but it does not sit well with (potential) customers.

"no substantial "moving forward" has actually occurred"

Thank you for this comment. Actually some substantial moving forward has already occurred, but we have not communicated this well. We have had to make changes to the app in version 3.4 in order to make it work with our sales and support backend, a couple of serious bugs have been fixed and we have added a new theme. All these things benefit existing customers and new ones.

By the way, sales have picked up substantially since we released PhotoPresenter 3.4

Best,

Oliver.
