Boinx FotoMagico 2 Public Beta: Standalone Slideshows and Screensavers

Munich, Germany - January 5th, 2007. FotoMagico 2 enters the Public Beta
testing phase. FotoMagico 2 represents a significant step forward by
introducing high resolution, standalone slideshow players that can be
shared with people who do not have a license for FotoMagico. In order to
test this new capability thoroughly, FotoMagico 2 is now available as a
public beta with a final release planned for March, 2007.

Standalone Slideshow Player

FotoMagico 2 will introduce standalone slideshow players. With them,
photographers can share their slideshows in high resolution (much better
than any video) with people who do not have licensed FotoMagico on their
Macs. The standalone player offers the same playback quality as the full
version of FotoMagico. Standalone slideshows play as soon as they are
opened and can be made to expire after a certain time or after having
been played a certain number of times.


Another popular format for distributing slideshows is screensavers.
FotoMagico 2 lets you export your slideshow as a screensaver. Again
because the screensaver uses the FotoMagico rendering engine, the file
size of the screensaver can be kept low even for long slideshows with a
lot of movement and high resolution images. With this, FotoMagico opens
a new advertising and distribution channel for digital photographers.


A Watermark is a visible logo superimposed on the slideshow.
Photographers can use this to brand their slideshows by displaying their
logo or website address or phone number or whatever they like. In
connection with the standalone player, this is a powerful advertising

Availablity and Pricing

Boinx FotoMagico 2 Public Beta is now available for download as a
Universal Application from the website It requires a special time-limited
license key which can be requested at the website free of charge.
Pricing and update policy have not been determined yet. The final
release is planned for march 2007, subject to beta test results.
