Keeps losing images. This software does not not work. It's useless. A complete waste of time

I had the same problem when exporting to a .mov format. The standalone player did not drop any images.

I have had to recreate my slideshow 5 time because this piece of garbage has lost my work. I wouldn't buy this again under any circumstances.

Great application. Super easy to use and pretty powerful. Looking forward to continued updates to refine overlapping audio and images.

tried to post negative comment on pricing and business practices. Input suddenly locked up, and locked me out, refusing my input. Guess they're getting a little sensitive about them and apple ripping people off.

I'm forced to enter stars in features, ease of use and stability. They mean NOTHING. This post is all about how they (and apple) treat us, the customers.

A previous entry-level version of Fotomagico put the developer's watermark on slideshows; you had to upgrade to remove it. Is that the case with the version being offered for the Sept 2013 bundle?

Extremely expensive. Extremely buggy. For example, if a show has more than one track (which is the case in most shows) it is very very difficult to match slide durations to tracks.

Last straw: 2 hours to render the .mov video for an 8 minute slideshow -- on a 2012 Air with dual i7s and 8GB RAM!!

Bought this as part of MacUser special discount. I make professional films and this is extremely quick for putting ideas down for intros and interstitials - it's a sketchpad for ideas I can then put into Motion, ScreenFlow or Adobe Premiere.

I can even copy chunks of transitions into other apps like Boinx TV for fillers and short documentary style news items.

Very, very speedy productivity and so worth the price - especially with the MU discount! It saves me time so saves me money.

If you set aside the pricing/upgrade issues and look at the software on its own merits, I feel it's still a pretty great deal at 79.99. (current sale price.) I mean, I can't think of another program that gives you that much control with such a slight learning curve.

You also get the benefit of knowing the dev. isn't a fly-by-night hack who's just trying to make a buck on the Mac App store.
FotoMagico is a capable, powerful tool, updated regularly with new features and fixes. The feature set improved significantly from V3 to V4.

Do I wish it was cheaper? Sure. But I wish LOTS of things were cheaper. Do I think the dev is ripping anyone off (even previous users) by charging 79.99 -- or even 99.99? Absolutely not.

It would be nice to see what this App is all about, but every time I visit their site, the page starts to load, then I get the beachball and finally Safari crashes; any ideas Boinx? It certainly doesn't fill me with much confidence in a Mac App who's site crashes the main Mac browser!

Always Frame Rate Lost in Preset Export
Always Size Export Lost in Presets Export (Native not work)
Always Ask config the Display (let us choose one time, after we'll modify if request)
Always Need re config Export (Codecs & all !!) (make me fever for tests and big projects)

Please add a Preset manager in Preferences (like old one), than we no need do the same things all time, and lost time to do slideshows…

Not Trully Leopard Compatible

If you wanna sell it, made it better / easier than iPhoto because for 49$; iLife is only for 99$ with iMovie, GarageBand, iDVD, etc…
