We love images, and image quality is everything. AquaSoft SlideShow keeps each pixel of your photo. Finally, you can use your photo's high resolution. Camera pans show even the tiniest detail, and huge panorama photos glide smoothly along.
Fades are pixel perfect. Output in HD or above? Easy!

Animations – endless possibilities

With AquaSoft SlideShow your pictures will learn to move. Let your photos glide gently along or zoom into each detail with camera pans and Ken Burns effects. Float pictures, text, or videos along movement paths and combine multiple animations and images using the timeline. This lets you create living photo collages and stunning sceneries.


AquaSoft SlideShow will always help you to realize your own ideas. But why create everything by yourself? Templates for a plethora of elements help you to create professional-looking results. Complete intros, photo effects, animations, backgrounds, or entire slide shows.

Hierarchical timeline and animations

More than 10 years ago we invented the hierarchical timeline that allowed you to group animations spanning multiple tracks.

Hierarchical animations go a step further: Individually animated child objects will be synced with the parent object's animation. This is possible with the use of the new Flexi-Collage, which "glues" your animations together.

Animations, fadings, collages, effects and more

Source material and effects

Photos, text, videos, and sounds – those are the elements that define your show. Combine them with AquaSoft SlideShow's animations, fadings, collages, and all the other effects to create something truly mesmerizing.

You will be amazed.

Dynamic effects

How to creative living movies out of static photos? With dynamic effects, you can manipulate all elements of your show. Combine image sections with animated masks. Deform, twist, and dent with displacement effects, or make your photos more dynamic with animated blurs.

These effects also work with your videos.

Image editing

Your photos are great, but a little clipping to focus on the important parts is often useful. Perhaps you would like a bit more contrast and brightness. With the integrated nondestructive image editor of AquaSoft SlideShow, you can easily make these and other improvements to your pictures. All changes can be reversed, and your original photos will never be overwritten.

Music and pictures – synchronized beat for beat

Music is an important part when creating impressive shows. AquaSoft SlideShow offers new tools for synchronizing transitions to the beat of your music. With your own feeling for the music you can easily record the beats in the timeline and position your photos accordingly, which is much better than any full automatism. The zoomable wave form of your sounds will help you visually, and with the flexible sound volume ribbon, you can modify the volume at any position in your sounds to your needs. Additionally, AquaSoft SlideShow can fade your music automatically for spoken comments or videos.

AquaSoft is cool. Very fast answers to questions from my emails and really good and competent answers at that!
Reinhard Czerny via Facebook

Even before digital cameras became the norm, AquaSoft was already developing slideshow software – since 1999, to be exact. Trust our experience from more than 14 years of slideshow software development.

Intelligent slide shows

Intelligent clipping of your photos, automatic camera pans to focus the faces within your pictures, intelligent sorting, templates, and an intelligent player are all part of this amazing program.

Of course, you are much more intelligent than any slideshow software – but it's still nice to have a program that pays attention. Your photos won't be clipped through the faces, pictures can be sorted by the date they were recorded, and templates will accommodate to your photos, not the other way around.

Performance with IntelliLoad3

You've probably noticed that your huge digital photos can be quite taxing on your computer. Of course, loading and changing 18 million or more pixels needs a lot of power. AquaSoft SlideShow knows this and is well prepared. Large photos are loaded in the background and won't interfere while you work with your slideshow. The software makes use of multi-processor systems and uses the power of your graphic card for its output. This also speeds up the creation of videos from your shows.

Live presentations

AquaSoft SlideShow can play shows in real time. This means you can show your presentation directly from the software with a monitor or plugged in projector. Showing your pictures in full HD or above with perfectly smooth animations is no problem. There is no need to first export your presentation as a video. You can also control the presentation's flow manually (even backwards) and decide whether the sound should play during pauses or not.

Preserving, backing up, and archiving

You are able to export a project without any limitations so that you will be able to edit it again. All necessary information and files, from your photos and videos to your background music and the fonts used for your text, will be archived.

If you were excited about DVD quality 10 years ago, you can now burn your once archived shows to Blu-ray discs sharp, impressive HD videos – the quality of your original photos is still good enough. When 4k resolution become the standard in future, you can do the same again.

With AquaSoft SlideShow 8, you can still open and edit projects you created years ago.
