Creating and Selling Your Own Slide Styles

Slide Styles are more than just fast and easy effects for making better slideshows, they are also a hot commodity! While Photodex creates packs for customers to purchase, many other third-party companies and users just like you have started selling effects they’ve created to other ProShow users.

If you’re a whiz at developing your own creative and unique slide styles, you might consider selling your styles to other ProShow users. Here are some tips to get you started.
