Autumn is just around the corner -- but thankfully, it's not here just yet! Labor Day is the capstone of summer, ideal for one last weekend outing. What better way to celebrate the changing season than by getting all your summer pictures together, and using Photo to Move to whip up a spectacular-looking slide-show?

Don't have enough pics from your summer? Get your friends and family together and make that weekend count. Picnics, barbecues, beach parties, pool parties, camping, amusement parks, water slides and zoos--bring your camera and snap away.

And once you're done, continue the fun--it's the perfect opportunity to load up Photo to Movie. Share with your loved ones the experience of preserving those terrific memories forever in a dynamic, professional-quality slide-show. Match your favorite songs to the right pics--you'll be amazed how that music will sweep you back to those fun-filled days! Not just for you, but for family and friends, for decades to come.

With Photo to Movie, it's fun, quick, and easy to turn all your photos into a slide-show sure to bring tears to Grandma and Grandpa's eyes. Show them to your family, friends, colleagues, and neighbors. It's a new and exciting way to jazz up that yearly letter--it's a fantastic gift for family or anyone involved--and what a great way to make a summer yearbook you'll want to look at again and again.

Hint: it also makes a great back-to-school project for your kids--an easy-to-use, great looking way to do a high-tech Show and Tell. Or let your older kids get behind the camera-lens and use those pics in a slide-show perfect for any project or essay. And for you, it's a superb way to give your portfolio the pop it wants.

Photo to Movie: the funnest and easiest way to show off the best of your memories!

Motion Pictures 2.2 (Mac OS)

LQ Graphics has recently re-introduced Motion Pictures for the Mac.

You can think of Motion Pictures (Mac OS) as Photo to Movie "Lite". It's a great companion to Photo to Movie and even though it doesn't have the detailed editing capabilities of Photo to Movie, it offers a few features that Photo to Movie doesn't yet include. Check it out!

Motion Pictures helps you create stunning slideshows from your digital photos. You can add pan and zoom motion effects, music soundtrack, and display up to 6 photos on the screen at the same time. Export your slideshow for editing in iMovie, burn with iDVD or Toast, and easily share by email or through your YouTube account.
