Quick Download compared with other slideshow software available.  Overall a nice experience. Easy to use transitions that don't crash your system like other products on the market. Very intuitive and easy to follow.  You won't even have to read the direction if you're just a little computer savy. I would like to see more options in relation to adding music in the menu and in the transitions.

Request: More templates for birthdays.

Type of Computer: PC
Software: Windows 7

Followup:

After being selected, I was sent a serial key that didn't work. infostrides followed up by sending requests to wondershare.  I waited and waited for a reply to come but it never did. I sent several emails to theinfostrides.com who in turn reached out to wondershare.

Due to necessity, I went ahead and purchased wondershare deluxe. I would not have purchased this product had the serial number worked for fantashow. After careful comparison decided to purchase their flagship product for 1 year related primarily to price.

I was rather disappointed that the company didn't answer theinfostrides.com email but was completely shocked to learn that the Burn to dvd feature has a known problem associated with sound not working on various DVD players on their main product line. It totally distorts the sound on various DVD players which makes the product completely unusable for that purpose.

I opted to visit the sites forum in hopes of finding a resolution, but was told that I should purchase yet another product from the same company if I wanted to burn my DVD successfully. You can't make this stuff up. Why would anyone waste additional funds if their primary product fails to work as advertised? I hope this is resolved in future updates because it's really a great product aside from the sound issues.

I'd really like to see more options for social media uploads. It does feature a facebook icon but it only shares a link to the wondeshare website which doesn't really help the end user as it's only purpose is to advertise wondershare.   

Total Burn time was about 45-60 minutes for a 30 minutes slideshow using a windows 7 with an I3 processor. 

Theinfostrides.com provided quick emails and attempted to resolve the issue but as of 8/24/2012 wondershare has not replied to their emails regarding the none working serial number provided. 

If wondershare read this:

1# Can you please provide me with a working serial for either Fantashow or upgrade my wondershare deluxe to full edition. I wouldn't have purchased the product had the working serial been provided. Of course I would prefer the deluxe update after using it.

I appreciate theinfostrides.com for their efforts in trying to reach you.

Thank You
