  1. Very interesting as the Deluxe version has similar features to that of Nero 9! Impressive that it captures photos directly from webcam and the installation file is small in size compared to Nero.

  2. Thanks for the giveaway, this is a good software and made easy to use such as The pictures can be simply dragged to the timeline view and various effects and elements can be applied to them plus the music can synchronized with the pictures slideshow.

  3. It’s really user friendly i found it quiet easy to arrange photos and put music when saves your time and effort. And the picture quality with music is remarkable. And the wide range of video format it supports is impressive. It’s really a simple product yet efficient.

  4. Thanks for the giveaway. It would be helpfull for my project slideshow. Please consider me in for the nice giveaway. Best Regards.

  5. I’m currently using ProShow Producer and while it has many great features, I’ve always wanted to try something similar. This software has unique features which are only available as paid extras in Producer. This is the type of software that would save a lot of time & money. I’d love to win a copy of this software.

  6. I just checked it by downloading from the url posted above the software works great , the output quality is good , but in my opinion there they must add to make audio dts with 6 channel. Or it is already there after getting full version ?? So i want Deluxe Edition Licence. Let me win it …

  7. TWC,
    Thanks for holding this giveaway. Overall, I really like Wondershare products. DVD Slideshow Builder looks like it continues a fine tradition. Shows are easy make using a simple drag and drop to timeline view. I also like the pan and zoom options. A novice user can make professional looking effects and get synchronized audio/music in the slideshow. I find that transition can hold a viewer’s interest, as well. This software boasts over 125 effects, more than enough to keep viewers attentive. I would use this product for some of the stand-alone video presentation I have to make for use at conventions and other public gatherings.
    Please enter me in the contest.

  8. Hi TWC,
    A big thanks to you and Wondershare for this new giveaway opportunity.

    I have and am using Wondershare products so I also gave this new product a try myself (for trial 6.0). The 1st try was with photos, as I had to prepare a DVD for my Mom from her recent trip to my place. I found that the software does not have any limitations on the number and total size of photos in any given slideshows. It does also allows to have multiple slideshows in one single DVD, which helped me categorize different trips and still have them in a single DVD, but in different slideshows. The transfer and processing of almost 100 photos per slideshow (3-4mb each) was pretty quick on my XP system with 1Gb RAM. Please note that only the Deluxe verion supports TIF, TIFF,GIF formats, Transition Effects and Photo Duration capability. I was very satisfied to find everything built in without having to process my photos before building the slideshows. It has in-built trim, rotate, crop and flip functions, auto-adjust function to customize brightness, contrast- making it the most desirable All-in-One product.

    Not to forget were the funny cliparts (both still and animated) which I added to my slideshows to depict the moods and also add some humor.

    Last but not the lease it has thumbnail preview of photos (and also videos) to see them before adding to a slideshow.

    Appreciate if you count me in for the Deluxe version.

    Thanks,
    Grr

  9. thanks for this, count me in also.
    you guys always have the best info and up todate sources. love you!!

  10. I used only Windows Movie Maker. I try this software and I was impressed.

    It like a movie maker on a steroids. Many many functions, templates, and effects. Maybe I will suggest to support lightscribe for direct printing on disc as this software supports burning on DVD, it will a good compliments to have an option in burning a cover with lightscribe support and templates available to it.

    Thank you for the giveaway!

  11. I would really like to have DVD Home Maker. My parents are not computer savvy and I would love to burn pictures of my kid on a DVD and send them to watch on television.

  18. As a President of the local camera club I investigate as many software packages as I can get my hands on to recommend easy to use software to our members for the production of short picture essays. I would like to evaluate this software.

  19. yeah…i really miss this kind of stuff.I loved to edit photo movies with handy editing tools.Recently, I already use products from this company, time freeze and flash gallery factory and they all seem so great.So, exactly I really wanna try this out and give feedback.As a student and still learning,I really wanna this stuff to give me some experience and knowledge and mainly I can use it in my club.If can i really want to try DVD Slideshow Builder Deluxe Version as it seem more functional and lastly thank thewindowsclub for your great effort to give this fantastic giveaway and hopefully more and more giveaway will follow up cause I really loved to surf this site.Regards.

  20. I have a computer full of photos and would like some simple way to put together slide shows for my children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren. This program lookes like it would be easy to do and would be perfect for my purposes. I am getting older by the minute and need to start this project soon!!

  21. Man I could have used this program four months ago. I had a family reunion and I was put in charge of making a slideshow from family photos. Tried at least 5 freeware slideshow maker and believe me it was not fun. However, everyone thoughts I did a fantastic job believe I didn’t think the software I used had the bells and whistles that I needed to make it a great slideshow for the reunion. Yes, please put me in because now I have to make slideshows for my wife high school reunion. 🙂

  22. Installation of this program is a piece of cake, though I intially got an access violation error. Its graphic user interface is very intuitive and pleasant. The building process itself involves three successive stages: 1. Organize, 2. Personalize and 3. Create, which can be accessed by clicking column-like, vertical tabs. The Organize Tab lets you select and arrange the pictures and videos you want to be part of your presentation. Each picture can be edited by scaling its hue, saturation, brightness and contrast. You can add text captions, to which purpose the program has some advanced word-processing facilities. Pictures shot in portrait position can be rotated to appear in their appropriate up-right positions. The selected slides are displayed in a row of decently sized thumbnails at the bottom of the program, which allows you to monitor the effects of your actions. Could not be easier. Want two slides to changes places? No problem, by right-clicking you can easily drag the individual slides to the position you want to assign them in your presentation. The Personalize Tab allows you -among other things- to configure the time intervals between the slides, not just collectively, but also for each transition separately.You can implement the mode and style of each transition by picking the transistion of your choice from a fairly large selection presented in a side-bar window. This gives you the possibilty to set short and remarkably smooth transitions between pictures which clearly belong together, for example because they have been shot at short intervals at the same location. In contrast, the move to a next group of slides can be signalled by a prolonged transition time, which we can endow with, say, visually different 3D-effects. All in all, a lovable option, with lots of potential. In my test, I regularly had to try twice or more before I managed to drag and drop the selected mode of transition to its desired place -I regularly lost it-, but this may be due to my rather minimal hardware configuration, or simply inexperience. You can add music of your taste..When the various choices are ticked, you can proceed to the Create Tab, which will load the template data. It is now possible to preview your presentation, and burn it to a DVD, or save it to your harddisk, for which several options are given (depending on the device on which you want to view the video). You can retain the original aspect ratio, which is nice, or opt for cropping.. My test included some 180 pictures of different formats, in addition to four .MOV videos, but I did not notice any incompatibility error. Not everything worked flawlessly, though. If you return to the Organize tab after already having configured the Personalize stage settings-for example for rotating a slide to portrait-position-, the program may stall, giving you a pop-up that it “Failed to save thumnail”. No big deal, but when you click OK the message just re-appears, with no possibility to exit, so you have to do a cold start to get moving again. The first time this happened, I lost one hour of work, after which I took care to save the project every five or ten minutes. There is an automated restore feature, but it did not work, and anyway I had liked to see a configurable autosave option which writes the progress to file at regular intervals. On another occassion, all portrait-mode slides reverted to a landscape position, so that towers and standing persons were shown as if they were being pushed over by a hurricane. One needs time to get acquainted with a program of this kind, so these problems may well be due to inexperience on my part. All things considered, DVD Slideshow Builder the Luxe is an impressive program with lots of potential, which I would really love to have (and test further).

  23. Good program. My parents-in-law live far away and they have no computer. I will use this software to put the holiday pictures of their grandchildren in a slideshow and burn that to a DVD, which I will send them, so they can see the kids play on their DVD-player. Would be great.

  24. Initially, I would like to thank for the opportunity to compete to win this fabulous program.
    I downloaded the Deluxe version, and I was impressed with the resources available. The possibilities of multimedia mountings that can be done with this program are virtually endless.

    Though I’ve been found this program wonderful, I’d like to suggest some minor improvements:
    1) The “Motion” option could be customized, allowing the user could set the points of origin and final, as to pan movement or zoom movement;
    2) The cliparts are amazing, but would be more interesting if there was the possibility to include more than one in each slide;
    3) In the output part, it would be nice if there was the option not to soften the videos created. This would allow the images were a little crisper, without becoming artificial.

    As to why I want this program:
    I am a great enthusiast for multimedia programs. I usually use image and video editors, and do many productions at home, from slideshows to small home movies. However, as a matter of principle, I just use free programs or those who could obtain legally. In my country (Brazil) piracy is very common, and many times I’ve been branded a fool to worry about it. However, I believe that a clear conscience is much more rewarding than some illegal programs installed on my computer.

    Again I thank you for this opportunity, and wish a good week everyone.
    Regards,
    Evandro.

  26. Hello,
    My wife runs a womens mentoring minitry at our church, Apples of Gold. She takes pictures of the sessions, and we build a 6-7 minute movie to give to the mentees and mentors as a memory maker and a thank you. We have used Windows Movie Maker on our old XP machine that was damaged in an electrical storm last week. If we receive a free licence of DVD Slideshow Builder, we could make better movies, much faster, on the Windows 7 machine we had donated to us.

    Thank you for your consideration,
    Jerry G
