You said " Unfortunately, I couldn't find the sales option" I looked and could not find that PhotoShow is a supported product by Roxio or Corel. It looks like the only way to buy it is to know the web site. Does that give you any kind of a hint?


It is an ancient program and there has been no development update work on it. There have been some recent problems related to the web site that have not been fixed; not will they likely be fixed.. Look at some of the other recent postings.


If you do decide to buy the Premium version, and if you are not using an Apple computer download the desktop version and create slide shows on your desktop. You can upload them to the web for sharing. Some people have recently lost PhotoShows with no way of getting them back. You could always share them to YouTube or the like.


Remember that we are users and not tech or sales support. I doubt that anyone will do a detail yes/no analysis of your questions.


Go here (link) to Corel Sales support. Corel now owns Roxio and has full responsibility.


Good luck

Do you recommend other software which provide the same functionality?


Your positive response will be helpful to me.

You can look at the Creator NXT 3 or the Video Lab products or the Corel Video Studio program. You can make photoshow type project with those. You can then use a social video sharing application like Vimeo and YouTube to post the videos.


None of the above will take any kind of Digital Right Management (DRM) resources (like covered music).


Are you planning to buy the product for home use or for commercial use?
