    Slideshow Software

    I read somewhere a while back that there was a slideshow software that would allow you to tap a key when you wanted the next photo to appear (like on a tone, beat or tempo change in whatever music was added to the slideshow), but that it was only available for the Mac.

    Looking around the net, I cannot find anything like that, at least none that specifically state that in thier description.
    I run Windows 7 64-bit, and wanted to ask if anyone knows of any slideshow software that:
    1. ... specifically allows the tapping of a key in order to set the next photo change in time with the music
    2. ... can handle HD Photos


    Commercial Software might also be acceptable is it doesn't cost hundreds of Euro!

    Look into "MAGIX Fotos auf CD & DVD", it has something in this kind. I never used it, but the manual says it can do it also automatically.
    Maybe there is a trial version http://www.magix.com/at/

    How odd, your reply was posted yesterday evening, yet I only just now got notification of a reply...

    Anyway, thanks, I'll look that up.
    And if anyone know of any others, please do post.

    Thanks for that info sty2586.
    I've now had urgent reason to do a slideshow, and got MAGIX PhotoStory on CD & DVD 10 DeluxeHD.
    Whereas it doesn't have the button thing I was looking for, it DOES allow pretty precise placing of photos on the timeline, and it turns out that is probably better.
    The slideshow I made was using very old, scanned prints, but the processing was done to the best of my ability with LR and Photoshop.

    [End of post-related statement]

    It's of pictures of my daughters life from when she was born right up to the last pictures I took of her myself,
    she was murdered on Saturday in Germany by her boyfriend.
    I'm not asking anyone to go have a look, but should anyone wish to see the slideshow of her and/or what the software in question can do,
    for someone that never made a slideshow before, but produced this 3 days after purchase and installation,
    here's a link to it on YouTube (description, video text and music are in German):

    Thanks Victoria, sorry I didn't answer sooner, I've been getting Facebook messages from her friends all day, hard to keep up with things at the moment.

    Thanks everybody!

    Without wanting to sound cold, I also wanted to show what could be done with no working knowledge of the software involved, or indeed ever having done a slideshow before, and also having to do it while not being able to properly see from crying due to the circumstances.
    The software can do way more, but I wanted to keep this particular slideshow simple.

    From a purely technical perspective, in my opinion, the software is WELL worth the money!

    Thank you, and I am feeling a little better.
    But I don't know about tomorrow, I fly out at zero-dark-thirty in the morning to go over.
    NOT something I am looking forward to.
