Badly Needed Overhauls

Do you remember the days before slide styles? It was a lot harder back then, and yet, we learned how to do all kinds of wonderful things without styles. Be that as it may, we’re not about to give up our precious styles, and I’m not about to leave perfectly wonderful products in the dust due to their having no styles. Here are five that have been streamlined and given styles so they’re way easier to use. FREE UPDATES if you already own any of them!

Canvas Vistas has had 8 slide styles added, some with motion:

Chroma Bead Frames includes 5 styles for speedy frame setup:

Royal Lattice has gained 6 setup slide styles that can lead to all kinds of design variation:

Sand & Shells sports 5 setup styles just in time for shows about summer vacations:

A NOTE ABOUT MUSIC: Yes, ProShow 7 gives us access to Photodex’s music library, which certainly helps, but there’s a caveat. We can’t open the music in a sound editor. Basically, what you hear is what you get. Not so with any of the music offered at The Frame Locker both royalty-free and cost-free. New music is added on an extremely erratic basis, but if you haven’t been there in a while, by all means visit. There are now over 100 songs.

Currently most popular:
Meerkat Party
Sauntering with JS
September’s End
Little Wolf Mountain

Downloads that surprised me:
Robots in the Orchestra
Reel Home Cooking

Personal favorites:

Canvas and Wood Producer slide styles

When all is said and done, traditional surfaces and textures can be the best way to exhibit photos, and that’s where Canvas & Wood slide styles absolutely shine. Apply any of the 23 slide styles, match your photos’ colors in the canvas and wood, add any of Producer’s built-in transitions or ones you’ve purchased, and you suddenly have a dynamic presentation. Best of all is that you’ve had a whole lot of fun doing it.

Etchings on Vellum slide styles for ProShow Producer

Some of you are aware of the freebie slide style, Ink on Parchment Bkgrd, the result of a question on the ProShow Enthusiasts forum. Well, the idea of parchment made me think about vellum, the finest form of parchment, and this lead to visions of etchings on vellum.

After much testing and playing, we now have Etchings on Vellum, a collection of 11 slide styles plus 4 transitions for any kind of Producer 6 show. Here’s a tiny sample of just the etchings without the framed photos that are part of the styles:

For those who love paper as much as I and can spend hours in stationery stores, you’ll find a list of suggestions for special papers. There are even transitions that you may have missed in the past.

“Cracking Up” with ProShow Producer Styles

If you’re looking forward to Easter or contemplating a lighthearted show, “Cracking Up” may be all you need. Bird photos were used in the demo because they poke their way out of
eggs (and because I have lots of bird pictures), but if you consider how an egg symbolizes babyhood, springtime, new growth, feathered friends, hatched plans, and laughter (as in
cracking up), inspiration may strike. Included are 5 slide styles and 10 patterns that you can color, though you can easily make your own patterns, too.

NEW slide styles: Cracking Up

COLORwash update: Remember when a Cracker Jacks prize might be a temporary tattoo called a “decal”? Well, these decals have stood the test of time, growing bigger and better. When Zazzle added temporary tattoos to their product list, I jumped right on it out of nostalgia and a sense of fun. The best place to see this fun is on Pinterest. Just open my tattoo board in the top row and enjoy a trip back to childhood.

New! Leaf Medallion 14 ProShow Producer Slide Styles

First, I have to explain myself concerning the demo for Leaf Medallion. Looking through my collection of photos to use in the demo, I sat here sighing with boredom. I’m really tired of all my pictures. And then temptation struck. I do a lot of cartooning, so why not… Well, you’ll see when you watch the demo that I’m not above temptation. :)

It’s a set that, regardless of how fancy it might seem, is suitable for quiet, elegant shows. With its shiny metal and the ability to change all colors, it’s a perfect fit for anything celebratory. Christmas shows are coming soon, and in June, there might be a wedding, or perhaps a graduate. Birthdays, anniversaries, and anything else worth celebrating are also prime candidates.
