Although photo software such as iPhoto and Picasa have made making photo slideshows much easier, they're not dedicated tools for the task. Neither handle videos well either when it comes to slideshows and presentations.

PulpMotion however does and allows you to create professional looking and engaging photo-video slideshows that will breathe new life into any photo and video collection. PulpMotion does a lot of the hard work for you by including a number of visual themes with which to work with. Your own media is organized down the right side of the interface and the timeline runs along the bottom very much like a video editor.

To create your own animations, simply drag and drop elements onto the main interface in the same way as you would in iMovie. When you're ready, you need to export it and PulpMotion provides options to do so via Mail, exporting to QuickTime, publishing to a website using iWeb, uploading it onto an iPhone or even creating a personal screensaver with it. Alternatively, you can publish it as a standalone media player that anyone should be able to watch on their machine.

The great thing about PulpMotion is that it does a lot of the hard work for you by providing some impressive themes, automatically syncing music. pacing the presentation etc. The interface tries to pack a lot in meaning it does feel a bit cluttered at times but this is a minor drawback on what otherwise is an excellent application.

Overall though, PulpMotion is an excellent multimedia presentation tool that will make your multimedia shows very impressive.
