I heard that there was an update coming for ProShow Web a while ago, and I have been looking forwards to it’s release. Well, it’s here! Mac users will be glad to have much of the functionality of the (PC only) ProShow Producer desktop software, and the update even improves the iPad app! I use ProShow Web for most of my hybrid photography eScapes, and I generally tweak them in ProShow Producer or Premiere Pro. Thanks to the update I will be doing most of my “tweaking” in ProShow Web from now on.
Here’s the full press release…
