I want to make slideshows with holiday photographs mainly for my own and family viewing but also with sufficient interest if friends want to see them.   So I want to vary transistions, some with a centre interest to zoom, others not zoom at all.   I don't want a programme that says you can make a slideshow within minutes.  It is too rigid.  I want text of a colour of my choosing to appear for a short time, and then disappear.   I don't want text on all of them.

the programme I have used on Windows is called Pro show Gold.   There seems to be nothing similar for Mac - at least not of that quality.   I have been looking at fotomagico - there seems to be a Pro version which is quite expensive but can't seem to discover what it does without doing a trial version.   There is also Wondershow or Fantashow for Mac.   It also is very basic.

I don't want themes of popping balloons etc. in the surrounds.

I want a programme to work in with iphoto so that the photographs do not have to be in two programmes.

I am trialling lightroom at the moment.

Can anyone help?   Rose
