CyberLink MediaShow 4 is an all-in-one application to manage, enhance, and share your video and photo library. Its attractive animated interface makes importing, correcting and DVD authoring simple and effective. Its quick-fix editing tools allows for one-click correction of common exposure problems (red eye, contrast, brightness, and more), and also for one-click addition of beautiful creative effects. Finally, you can author and burn to DVD both slideshows and videos with just three mouse clicks, including stylish menus with background music.

You can add items to your library just by dragging and dropping new elements into any folder, or you can import new media files from your camera or cell phone. CyberLink MediaShow 4 will organize all your files and folders, and will present your files in re-sizable thumbnails that move around its 3D interface flawlessly. Its tagging utility makes organizing and cataloguing large media libraries an easy and pleasurable task, and its built-in search is powerful enough to find anything anywhere.

Editing and fixing your photos and videos is probably the most rewarding of all the tasks the program has to offer. All processes are automated, and you only need one click to add stunning visual effects to your photos. Once applied, you can always change the defaulted settings for a more personal approach. Though the program is not aimed to the professional user, it certainly produces pro-like results. The Split-Screen Editing functionality will let you see how your videos and photos improve with every click, allowing you to see how your creativity compares to the original.

It produces a full-authored DVD in just three easy steps – type in a title, select a menu style (with or without background music), add your videos and/or photos, and your movie or slideshow is ready to go. MediaShow 4 can even synchronize the photos of your slideshow to the music of your choice, automatically. Burn to DVD, upload it to YouTube or send it by e-mail. It just could not be easier.
