Puchheim, Germany – August 23, 2011

Boinx Software

and world famous photographer Mikkel Aaland have teamed up to bring photographers a brand new video training course, “Creating Dynamic Slideshows with FotoMagico and Photoshop.” Mikkel’s tool of choice, Boinx’s FotoMagico, is the star of this brand new training aimed at introducing photographers to the basics of mastering slideshow production and presentation. An award-winning American photographer known for his work in the early days of digital photography, Mikkel’s documentary photographs have been exhibited in major institutions around the world, including the Bibliothéque nationale de France and the former Lenin Museum in Prague. “Slideshows are as much a part of a photographer’s vernacular as camera and lens,” says Mikkel. “As long as I’ve been in photography – which is a long time – still images have been carefully sequenced and shown to entertain, inform and inspire. But, slideshows of yesterday were clumsy affairs, requiring projectors, carousels, and screens. Digital technologies have transformed the slideshow, and the Internet has made it easier than ever to share them with family and friends. In this new workshop, I teach photographers to use FotoMagico – an extremely powerful and popular slideshow creation tool – to free them of the traditional and outdated slideshow format.” Get a sneak peak at the training here:


Creating Dynamic Slideshows with FotoMagico & Photoshop

Mikkel’s new video course, “Creating Dynamic Slideshows with FotoMagico & Photoshop,” is available now via, Europe’s premier source for video training since 2002. The in-depth workshop, instructed by Mikkel himself, takes audiences through the powerful slideshow tool, FotoMagico, and Adobe® Photoshop to help break the mold of simple sequenced images. Viewers will learn how to choose and master effective transitions, use pan and zoom techniques to bring still images to life, and selectively add video and motion directly inside a still image. In addition, the course will demonstrate how to create the sophisticated 2.5D effect used by multi-million dollar ad campaigns and how to incorporate music and voiceover to bring slideshows to an entirely new level. Finally, the course will explore the various options for sharing finished products with friends, family, and the world via FotoMagico. “Creating Dynamic Slideshows with FotoMagico and Photoshop” is available for download now at
