Thank you Thank you Melanie, the PS news is the best ever, I though I will have to buy it again for Mac.  I am however going to get a new slideshow programme as Proshow gold gave me eonugh problems in the past.  Thanks for the good news!

Amelia, I am so happy with my mac, its fast, superb screen resolution, I have no problems with mine :) just a note, if you have photoshop on windows, you can just ask for adobe for a key swap, just mail them and say you are moving to mac, and they will issue you a new key, no need to re-purchase software :) I cant say anything wrong about mac!

Hi Melanie, I am busy switching to Mac at the moment as I am tired of the battles I had with windows.  Are you happy with apple, is it as fast as people say it is, do you experience apple as good?  Can you give some advise or forewarnings wrt apple?  I am so afraid I did the wrong thing as it is alot of money spent to get the apple.  Will appreciate your input.

Thanks Melanie, I used the Proshow Gold but it gave so many problems that I don't want to use it on my new mac as well, seening that it is actually only for windows.  I need something that is not stealing my time continiously.  Thanks for the help, I appreciate it.

Sorry, yes I do make slide shows for clients at extra cost as Animoto is quite expensive for the pro version
Comment by melanie janse on March 29, 2012 at 22:19
Amelia, I am using Animoto, I have found it the best for my needs, yes I am on Mac

Hallo Melanie, I just want to know if you know the Proshow Gold Programme to make slideshows, are you making use of the programme?  I know you are using apple, I am now busy changing over to apple and would also like to know what is a good programme to use for slideshows on the mac?  Last question, do you make slideshows for your clients?

Baie baie dankie vir die raad, ek waardeer enige kritiek, dit is hoe ons leer.  Baie dankie vir die tips.  (Ek neem nie troues, maar ek het vir my vriendin 'n paar geneem wat ek vir haar op dvd wil sit vir trougeskenk).

Comment by melanie janse on March 18, 2012 at 8:38
Hi Corne, ek hou van die reenboog wat jy in gekry het. Hierdie comments wat ek gee is net tips en nie soveel kritiek nie, Maar ek hoop dit help.
1. Kyk alkyd dat hulle koppe in 'n "clean spot" is sodat die horizon nie deur hulle koppe sny nie
2. Kyk mooi waar jy dir groom sit, want die boom after hom is reg agter sy kop
3. Tip vir die bruid se pose, laat sy altyd haar elemboog bietjie knak, Maar genoeg dat hy verby haar middelyf uitsteek, dit laat haar Dan relaxed lyk, en wys haar middle lyf af, al Moet die groom sy hand op haar heup sit, sy hou nog steeds sy hand vas, Maar sy knak haar elemboog en is verby haar lyf.

Hierdie is net tips soos ek se en nie kritiek nie, jy verbeter by die dag, en ek sien jy werk hard!! Dit is wat 'n goeie fotograaf is. Well done

Ps, jou exposure is reg, jy het die detail van die rok gekry, en die detail van die lug, high five!!
