BannerZest Pro 4.2
BannerZest Pro enables you to create and share quality slideshows and banners on your Mac. This application is packed with numerous editing options, gives you access to quality project themes, works with multiple image and audio formats, and supports drag-and-drop actions.
The program comes with a built-in media manager that provides you with a quick and simple way to locate and import pictures and background music for your project. Once you finish selecting the files you wish to use in your slideshow or banner project, you can choose a theme and start configuring the output settings.
To reveal the output options for the project click over the "Settings" button from the main toolbar of the application. You will be able to choose the preferred resolution, add borders, enable transition effect, and configure the sound settings according to your needs.
The application is quite limited when it comes to exporting the results. First of all, you cannot export any of your projects if you're using the trial version of the app. Hence, you can't be 100% sure that the program provides you with quality results or if there are any other supported formats.
Another thing that bothers me is that the utility works slowly when using the Media Browser tool or importing new images or audio files. Plus, the program is a bit pricey.
To conclude, I don't think it's worth buying this app for your Mac. You can easily find cheaper solutions that provide you with extra features.
