Extra Photo to Video Converter is a different product from Extra Slideshow.
Extra Photo to Video Converter is freeware which doesn't provide update version but Extra Slideshow is shareware which provide update version.So when Slideshow update,users can free download it and the register code is available.

I dumped this one then had to check my computer to see if it had changed more than the home page. Tried to but did not get it done.

This program is so poorly written I am surprised it works on any computer. Be aware that when you uninstall this it will attempt to get you to not uninstall parts by saying they are used by another program. Be sure they are and if not then get rid of them.

I hope GOTD waspaid torun this before they ran it.

FYI, Windows Movie Maker comes with windows XP & can do much the same thing. I took a class on a cruise last fall on how to do it. rather fun to do it.
For that matter there are many software packages that come with digital cameras af no extra charge. I might download this just to see how it differs

I had to give this one a thumbs down as (others have said in comments left here) there is nothing good on their own website about this...Plus I can do a slideshow with my already built-in Windows Movie Maker!
I've been coming to the site for quite some time and I fear it's either a good repeat or an obscure program we get from GOTD over the past few months.

Thankfully, I only go off the thumbs up/down rather than read the comments as there's always someone thinks the program is great whilst another thinks in belongs in the bin.
I prefer the freeware options posted most of the time so a big thank you to the people that post those :-)

I did install this (as I do most GOTD programs) but this was pretty untidy from the start and was'nt as good as Windows own Movie Maker.

The only thing I've kept from GOTD?? Starburn 10 (even though I have Nero)

I downloaded and installed without reading comments. I consider any software that changes my browser settings (like the home page) or system settings as rougue software. I'll uninstall and would never recommend anything from Extra Corporation. It's a trust issue and they crossed the line.

Not worth the money. There are too many freeware programs which can do slideshows. IrfanView, Windows Movie Maker or PhotoStory 3 can create slideshows for free.
Thumbs down.

In addition to my previous comment:

It also made another change in my settings:

I have Firefox as my default browser and have IE set to NOT ASK if it should be the default browser.

WELL IT CHANGED THIS. When I launched IE to check changes in settings it popped up the box and asked me if I wanted it to be the default browser.

NOTE TO SOFTWARE DEVELOPERS:
DO NOT CHANGE SETTINGS ON THE END USERS MACHINE IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM.

GRRRR...as Firefox user I didn't know about the tampering this does. I launced IE and sure enough it changed my default homepage, which is a custom html file that I made containing links to sites I visit regularly.

Not only that, but it added 'Favorites'. As a Firefox user I keep NOTHING in IE Favorites.

STRIKE ONE & TWO - You went in and messed with my personal settings without permission and without my knowledge.

I un-intsalled it pretty quickly. It's way too simple all the way around.

The UI is too simple, and the slideshow creation is too simple.

You get what you pay for...use one of the other Free alternatives out there...heck even PhotoStory is better than this.

If you *really* want excellent slideshow software spent the money for ProShow Gold or ProShow Producer.

Nowhere near as good as Microsoft PhotoStory3 (which is totally FREE). My first requirement of a slideshow program is the ability to do motion effects while a slide is displaying, i.e. nominate a start and end position on the slide and the program should give a motion effect from one to the other as specified. Any slideshow program that can't do that is automatically not as good as PhotoStory3. This offering also seems to be very CPU intensive. The previews I tried were jumpy as if my CPU couldn't keep up. Wow - I have a pretty powerful machine and other slideshows don't have this problem. That's enough for me, This offering is not a keeper. Thumbs down, but thanks GAOTD as always.

I am not sure but it seems that this program was possibly renamed on here improperly.
If you read the Extra photo to video converter it seems to be what is also described here on GOTD. I could be wrong, so don't attack me but I am going to confirm this with the company issuing it today.
Here is the link to that to compare.

http://www.dvdcopyrip.com/extra-photo-to-video-converter.html

Note: To register it, you simply click on the little man saying homepage which then pops up the menu to put in the code.
You can put any user name that you wish or your real name.

This program has a drop down menu to get the various effects all 100 plus of them so that is the reason I believe that it is renamed wrongly on this site.

It has no spy ware as I received no notices of spy ware upon doing a scan and it does seem to have the option to play it on media.
So it is probably the above program.

Disclaimer! I am not a member of this company but I believe in fairness and for something free we should consider things aren't always going to be top notch, but I see where it is useful and for the price isn't asking more then others would. Yet many seem to thumbs down before even really figuring out how to register it etc.
Thanks GOTD. This will come in handy for me even though there are many programs that are more elaborate. Hugs Tylicia

The one week Slideshow search

The bottom line is that Microsoft's Photostory 3 (PS3) was the best I could find. It played music and had the Ken Burn's effect. I was able to take the PS3 output (a .wmv file) and burn DVD slideshows with the Cyberlink DVD package (Power Producer) that came free with my LG DVD burner. There is an open source DVD burner called DVD Flick that can also burn a PS3 slideshow.

I just spent the second week in 2009 looking for a slideshow program that could include music and be internet playable and also be burned to DVD to make a slideshow of the Christmas gathering. I searched using Google and didn't find anything. Here's my story.

Music
I thought including music in a slideshow would be easy.
Imagematic's program Stillmotion 1.7 produces great Ken Burns effect but I couldn't get the music to play in the .swf or .avi file.
Ulead's Photo Explorer 8.5 plays music for each photo, I couldn't find where the background music would play for the entire show.
Adobe's Photoshop Album didn't seem to include music in it's pdf slideshow.
So much for big name products.

Internet playable
This was the biggest stumbling block. The slideshow's file format must match a player on your audience's computer. There is no standard so each program picks what works for them.
The easiest and most reliable slideshow programs produce a slideshow as a program, ie .exe file format. I was not interested in passing on a program because of the big threat of virus's.
Three programs that worked great (but produced .exe files) were NeroPhotoShow, Faststone Photo Album and xatshowi.

Corel PhotoAlbum 6 which comes free with Dell computers produces a .mov slideshow. I had an older version of itunes and it didn't play the show at all. I tried playing the .mov show with VLC player and the colors were all wrong.
Ulead's Photo Explorer 8.5 produces a .mpg file with great results but I couldn't overcome the presentation limitation of playing a musical selection per picture.

The best internet slideshow programs with music were .swf files.
They were Gallerymanager and Flash Slideshow Maker.
The only problem was I didn't know how to burn .swf files to DVD.

I tried Photodex Pro Producer. It can do everything. I didn't like it though because the slideshow seemed so busy with loading and setting up and fullscreen seems to mean fullscreen background with shrunken image. It's like a fancy European sports car and I'm just trying to buy a loaf of bread.

This is how I ended up using Microsoft Photo Story 3 and Power Producer (both free).

I'm on dial-up so downloading each program took a long time. I would install and give the program 10 minutes to see I if I could make it work. I may have been wrong in my assessment. I'd like to hear any feedback and suggestions.

Tested on AMD64 3400 w/2GBram>
It was sloooowwwww while creating an 800x600 AVI (cinepak codec) from (12) 150kb .jpg images. Like 15 min. to produce 2% ?!! Canceled operation, which created an incomplete but playable 64mb(!) .avi.

Tried same image set with MS PS3, creating a .wmv, and...pffttt...done. Resulting file was small (6mb) and excellent! Same random transition set as with EPSS, btw.

Tried EPSS again, creating a similiar-as-above .wmv (similar 6mb size), and and its speed came in second-place. Playback Quality was horrid, though, really.

Coulda played with IPSS's Settings (rudimentary as they are!), but chose to UnInstall instead. Ugh....

What is needed in ANY new Slideshow Makers is the PAN-WITHIN-AN-IMAGE FUNCTION, as old pokey PS3 has always had. At tip about the previously-mentioned SSMM...its not been updated since '04! Nice pioneering SW gone to "programmer-Hades", obviously!

There REALLY is a need for such a freeware "category-killer", as there's none...yet. MS PS3 should be(!), considering the source, yes? :-)

A simple check on the website shows much by offering little. If you look for their geolocation, there is none. If you look for their corporate address, there is none. If you look for their techsupport, there are only email addresses given that are disposable, like the hotmail address they list for their support site. GOTD, you are slipping. Bring back the honest programs that entice the public to buy a product from a real company.

Installed this on a Vista Home Premium machine and it did try and change my browser homepage. When the program tried to start after install, it just hung up and did nothing. I stopped it with task manager, then the program would not start again. It showed it was running in the task manager,but no program seemed to run on the desktop. I uninstalled it and never looked back...

Would have at least like to give it a go, but oh well.

Thanks anyway!

FWIW, Extra Photo SlideShow is a 3 MB program that also includes 20 MB in 99 files/5 folders that it'd like to put in your Windows System32 folder. Most of those are in a RMBin folder, & have to do with Real audio/video encoding -- if you've already got a version of Real Producer installed, or a program that uses this common file set, it could possibly break. Direct Show media filters (ActiveX files) from NCT are included for the System32 folder -- most are the same files used by maybe 1/2 dozen earlier GOTD offers, though maybe in different version numbers. Personally I haven't experienced any problems with those installed by earlier GOTD apps, but their functions can potentially conflict, taking over jobs previously done by filters installed with other programs, & this could break programs &/or playback... that's not to single out *any* program as misbehaving, since this is a common problem with media software in Windows [Google on Direct Show Filter Merit to get an idea of what's going on]. If you have other software that relies on/uses the Lame MP3 encoder, as Fubar pointed out the old version included could possiby cause problems. The same with the older version of gdiplus, usually stored by other software in the Windows WinSxS folder in several different versions.

If you're into slide shows give Extra Photo SlideShow a try, by IMHO backup first.

PROS:
- Easy to use
- Allows you to clip/ crop selected parts of audio files
- Allows you to add subtitles to photos
- Good range of input/ output formats, also creates DVD-compatible files

CONS:
- Transition effects were not as sophisticated as I hoped
- "142 effects" actually includes variations (e.g. wipe left-right / right-left)
- Some bugs encountered when saving final video, had to restart the entire program
- Window is not resizable, filenames may be difficult to see, especially if you want to reorder photos
- Subtitles are single-lined only
- Transitions appeared slightly jerky

SUMMARY:
Extra Photo Slide Show does well when it comes to its ease of use, but suffers slightly in the features department. I had hoped for smoother and more professional looking effects. Today’s giveaway wouldn’t be a bad option if all you want is to create a simple slideshow with background music.

RATING: 3/ 5

FREE ALTERNATIVES:
Picasa 3 – A photo organiser with a simple slideshow maker built-in. Transitional effects are nice, though limited.

Slide Show Movie Maker – Supports only wav files for audio, and not too user friendly. Transition effects appear smooth.

Microsoft Photo Story - Thanks Ashraf for this suggestion

When I tried adding audio, it only recognized a few of my MP3 files. Often popup stating, no audio in this track. The final output stops the music unfinished at end of slideshow and rough on the special effects.

This site never fails to amuse and entertain me, whether the beginning or end of my day I read through the comments to see what's up with the viewers/reviewers. The software company will be checking these comments and (hopefully) learning something about both their offer here and their general practices. FastStone is one of my current favorites for slideshow development.

Not sure what some people above are talking about: this works on Vista Home Premium 32-bit for me. My DEP settings are at default, which are to protect Windows programs/services.

The Good
* Works in a straightforward fashion/easy to understand what to do.
* Supports multiple input images formats.
* You can add background sound/music.
* You can choose from many transitional slide effects.
* You can add subtitles to each image.
* Supports multiple input sound formats for background sound.
* Will rip the sound off a video to use for background sound if you tell it to do so.
* You can output into AVI, MPG/MPEG, WMV and RM video formats.
* You can crop background sound files.

The Bad
* No proper text labels on some program buttons/tabs.
* Cumbersome resize of images.
* During installation it changes the default homepage of Internet Explorer to developer's website.
* There are no slide effects (I am not talking about transitional slide effects).
* You can't drag the subtitles around to place them in a certain location.
* No subtitle effects.
* Program crashes or freezes arbitrarily.
* Does not detect any AVI codecs for me.
* Output video is never exactly the size you specify.
* Sometimes the GUI messes up/does not display properly.
* Does not have the ability to output into a Flash format (SWF/FLV).

Registration and installation
Registration and installation went fine. However, there are two things to note:

* During installation, the program will change your Internet Explorer homepage to the developer's website. Good thing WinPatrol prompted me about it and I blocked it.
* The button that you must press to open the registration window where you must enter your registration information (that you attain from readme.txt) is not well labeled or obvious. It is located in the bottom right corner of the program

Free Alternatives
