    Has anyone used BOTH of these programs? Big cost difference but didn't know how much better producer was over gold. Obviously I want to be able to make something nice and professional that doesn't take a lot of time. Anyone have any slideshows to share using either program????

    Nope neither, though I recommend Adobe premier and adobe after effects you can make a nice photo slide show in minutes.

    I have both gold and producer.
    The reason I bought Producer was that you had a ton more control over the music, and could get funky with layers, etc.
    It's definately worth the few extra bucks, IMO.

    I have Gold and it's a great program...but I quickly found some things that were limiting....and the more expensive program does allow for a lot more control.

    As a business purchase, I would recommend Producer over Gold.

    I bought Producer last year and it is always freezing up on me. i like what it does, but it takes me a VERY long time to get anything done, because I'm contantly restarting. Its a good thing that it auto-saves!

    I have Gold. I like what I can create with it as I think too many different things can look cheesy. But, I'm sad that I haven't yet figured out a way to do much with the music.

    I also have both and as mentioned by Elsaspet, the layers is the most important thing to me.
