Cincopa SlideShowPro Migration Solution

Now that SlideShowPro terminated its software and support for it,
Cincopa’s SlideShowPro migration solution and SlideShowPro alternative enable you to import data from your SlideShowPro account.

Here is one of the customer emails we received about our great solution:

“I am really glad I found your site, your slideshow options are perfect for me. I spent the entire day looking at all the other options like slideshowbox and your solution blows them away. I am actually writing in regards to the reason I was searching for slideshow software in the first place…”

We want to make it clear that we are always saddened to hear news of any long-standing company closing its doors, especially when the company served the needs of so many people – in this case – professional photographers and organizations. We wish everyone at SlideShowPro the very best in their future endeavors.

Cincopa is an extremely viable alternative to SlideShowPro. We are here for you. We have always been here for you.  And we will continue to be here for you for many years to come.
