In fact, I use the old version of Fantashow: http://wondershare.com/photo-software/slideshow-builder-mac.html. It's far better than the new version.

I would love to purchase DVD Slideshow Builder Deluxe because of it being far more professional the Fantashow - which has been described by numerous bloggers as "cheesy". Such a watered down version compared to what is offered to PC owners. I own a MAC not a PC. No, I don't want to run VMware Fusion on my MAC. Please explain the logic in not having the DVD Slideshow Builder Deluxe available for MAC users?

Your kind suggestion is greatly appreciated in advance. However, regrettable to inform you that it doesn't support to fade in& fade out the first image & last image for looping now. We surely will forward your suggestions to our programmers. If possible, we will try to add this feature in the future update to meet your needs better.

That is great! Thanks for the info. I am one of the most untechie people out there (even the For Dummies is to much for my 1 brain cell to grasp) so found Nero supersimple....but the fact that it had a rigid 2 borders to type in irked me....I was always covering something up when trying to put a date or a caption. Thanks again
