Indulge in the Season of the Carnival and (Un-)Mask Your Creative Prowess


Boinx’s latest update to FotoMagico revels in the spirit of Mardi Gras by adding Masks that will make slideshows as fun as the floats journeying down Bourbon Street
 
Puchheim, Germany – February 13, 2013 – Fat Tuesday has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in some sweet slideshow making! Hot off the press, FotoMagico 4.2 is now available just in time to savor all (or at least most) of the favorite memories captured during the past week of Mardi Gras celebrations. The latest update to Boinx’s slideshow presentation software, FotoMagico 4.2 is all about Masks. Just like the masks worn at Mardi Gras celebrations, FotoMagico 4.2 Masks bring excitement to slideshows, only revealing desired parts of an image, while strategically hiding others to create mystique.

“Masks are the kind of advanced feature that power users crave,” comments Oliver Breidenbach, CEO, Boinx Software. “Masks give users the next level of creative freedom, making it easier than ever before to create stunning animation effects and evoke specific emotions within the audience. Clearly, we are committed to providing the very best slideshow creating experience on the Mac.”

When you create with FotoMagico, we’ve always got your back. Your work will automatically be saved with FotoMagico 4.2 support for OS X Mountain Lion Auto Save. Because just like Mardi Gras, sometimes productions can get a little crazy, and having Auto Save can be a major life-saver at times.

New Features in FotoMagico 4.2
• Apply Masks to images, movies or titles in the shape of a rectangle or oval to highlight or hide a specific area of the desired image
• Fine-tune Masks by moving and scaling, inverting, and blurring the edges – all independently of the layer they apply to
• Change individual layer opacity to create partially transparent images, movies or titles
• Save work quickly and automatically with Auto Save, which never interferes with the process of creating
