We recently added some new features to the Roxio Online service, as well as some special benefits for our premium subscribers. Here's what's new...
Control the speed of your PhotoShow
You can now use this slider to control your PhotoShow's playback speed. Moving the slider to the left will produce slow PhotoShows that hold your photos onscreen for 10 seconds per photo or more. Moving it to the right will speed up the PhotoShow holding photos onscreen for less time. If you add a video to your PhotoShow, we'll automatically set the hold time so the video will play back in its entirety.
Frame your PhotoShow with a border
We’ve added a Border tab that lets you add a colorful border to your PhotoShow. There are many borders in a variety of styles and themes to choose from. This fun feature was previously only accessible by selecting certain styles. You now have full control of adding and removing borders to your PhotoShow, no matter what style you've chosen.
Get Premium PhotoShow desktop software
Over the past few weeks we have had many Roxio Online Premium subscribers request access to the classic PhotoShow 5 desktop software. We value your feedback and have made the software available to all Premium subscribers, using the software key found on your account page. We have also released a newer version of the PhotoShow desktop software that mirrors the experience on Roxio Online. It too is available on your account page, and you can install both version 5 and the new Roxio PhotoShow desktop software on the same computer should you choose.
Keep your PhotoShows in sync
When you make a PhotoShow in your Roxio PhotoShow desktop software and then post it to your member page, you now have two versions of the same PhotoShow: a local version, which is saved on your computer, and an online version, which is saved in your member page. Now with the Auto-sync feature it's a snap to keep these two versions in sync when making changes in your desktop software or even when editing it online.
When you post a PhotoShow, the online version of the show is automatically synced to the local version on your computer. That means when you make changes to the local version using your Roxio PhotoShow software, those changes are automatically applied to the online version. Similarly, if you make changes to the online version, those changes are automatically applied to the local version on your computer.
Download PhotoShows with ease
One of the benefits of Roxio Online membership is the ability to make a PhotoShow online from any Mac or PC computer and save it on your member page. Consequently, it is possible to have PhotoShows saved in your online account that are not saved on your computer.
With Roxio PhotoShow, you can download any PhotoShow in your online account and save it on your computer's hard drive. In this way you can back up a PhotoShow for safekeeping, edit it locally using your desktop software, and share it in ways not possible online such as burning it to DVD for playback on your TV.
