Cons of Photodex Proshow Producer

  • File limitations with Apple computers - Final slideshows saved as Executable files cannot be played back on Apple computers. However, slideshows saved as other file types, such as MPEG or QuickTime videos, are Apple-compatible, as are slideshows burned onto CDs or DVDs.
  • Limited options on free version - Users must pay for the full, professional version of the software to experience full availability of customization and file options.
  • Some issues with freezing and stalling of free versions -Users have experienced some issues with the free version of Photodex Proshow Producer. Some issues include hanging of the program, stalling, and freezing. These issues are often caused by compatibility issues with other software and running programs, but may interfere with users' workflow.
  • Captions must be typed into photos manually -If captions or titles are desired on the photos, they must be typed into the slideshows manually; they will not be imported if they are already saved along with the photos themselves elsewhere.
  • Learning curve may be restrictive for some users -While the software is easy to use and features a large, window-style interface, it does have something of a learning curve that requires users to learn some basic terms and skills before producing quality final results. The learning curve will, of course, vary by user.
  • Limited music options for free users -Free users of the software are restricted from using royalty-free music available to paid users.
