This Proshow Producer review wouldn't be complete without an unbiased look at its disadvantages. First off, it has quite a confusing interface - it has tons of buttons with no clear function attributed to them. That is why mastering this software is a nightmare (this goes to even a slightly reduced version - Proshow Producer Portable). Moreover, the software's library has no templates devoted to certain themes. And there is no way to preview these style packs before you use them.
Most importantly, Proshow Producer has been discontinued. Its latest version dates back to 2018 and there is no way to purchase it legally. Sure, you can find this program's crack online or get it from torrents, but you'll most certainly be downloading malware instead of a properly functioning application. There is a spiritual successor to this software called Photopia, but this program is relatively new (which means it's slightly too raw as of now).
Need a slideshow maker that would have the same key features of Proshow Producer, but would be devoid of its drawbacks? Consider SmartSHOW 3D. This convenient software is packed with hundreds of templates, transitions, animation effects, and music tracks. And all of that comes with a user-friendly interface and is accompanied by tons of comprehensible tutorials. What's more, SmartSHOW 3D's full version only costs $39 (as opposed to Proshow Producer's price tag of $250). You can download this software for free to try its limitless toolkit yourself.
