May 13, 1999

Shelly Sofer from MGI Software

Program Director Bob Kerr has done it again, bribed MGI into presenting another dog and pony show. You may remember Dave Whittle's entertaining demonstration of MGI's product line last year, which included Partition Magic. Dave was scheduled to return the night of the fierce Snowstorm that closed down the January 14 club meeting, and even offered to drive out in spite of road conditions. This is dedication!

Unfortunately Dave can't make this meeting, but has arranged for Public Relations Manager Shelly Sofer to tell US all about PhotoSuite II which is one of the top rated photo manipulation programs at a bargain basement price. Pin some spending money to your underwear as we have a suspicion the program may be made available at a generous discount. If you are thrifty (cheap), this is your territory.

Industry experts have declared digital photography to be revolutionary. The Durham Personal Computer Users' Club will host Shelly Sofer, Public Relations Manager of MGI Software at our May 13, 1999 meeting. MGI Software, the market leader in photo and video editing software, will be featuring two award-winning products presented by Shelly Sofer.

Are you interested in digital photography or digital video but didn't think you could afford it? Two best-selling products from MGI Software, MGI PhotoSuite II and MGI VideoWave, give you an astounding array of options when it comes to your photos and videos.

The award-winning MGI PhotoSuite II (PC Computing MVP and PC Magazine Technical Excellence Award Finalist) is your complete PC photography solution--it's the fastest, easiest way to capture, touch up, transform, organize, create, show, and share your photos. Enjoy a creative freedom you've never had before. Turn your photos into greeting cards, personal calendars, postcards, invitations, certificates, web pages, collages, family letters, business cards, report covers, posters, magazine covers, sports cards, ads, and much, much more. Share them with others via email or on the Internet. MGI PhotoSuite II makes it possible in a way that's not only productive, but fun.

And with MGI VideoWave, winner of TWO PC Magazine Editor's Choice awards, you can now turn your computer into a personal video studio. With an inexpensive video capture adapter, you can convert videos from your camcorder tapes or videotapes into files on your hard disk, while MGI VideoWave lets you quickly and easily capture, edit and produce videos on your computer. Aimed at the non-technical, general business and home user, MGI VideoWave takes a fresh approach to video production by eliminating the traditional timeline interface used by other products. Find out more about how MGI Software is changing the way you picture the world by attending our next user group meeting.

The guest presenter will be Shelly Sofer of MGI Software. If you attend, you will come away from this meeting entertained and informed. Shelly will provide time for an open Q&A period and will bring valuable door prizes, informative handouts, and a special user group price for those wishing to purchase this outstanding product at the meeting. See you then!
