Does Just What I Need at a Fair Price - I was looking for a slideshow program that had excellent results, was easy to use & that was cost effective. I downloaded trial versions of all of the programs that I could find for the Mac. They either didn't do what I needed them to do or they were obnoxiously expensive. Until I found Photo to Movie. I had looked at this program previously, but I couldn't afford it at $50. It is now $29.99 and is worth every penny. Results were sharp & it was easy to use. I did have a bug early on and contacted support. Chris from their support team was quick to respond with a working solution. In short, I recommend this program without any hesitation.
Crashes! - Everything is great with this application for the few seconds that it works. It has crashed three times in the half hour I have owned it. I would have been better off printing my pictures and making a flip book while I hummed a tune in the background. I'm embarassed that I paid for this. (First review I've ever written for anything)

Ken Burns Effect - This program seems to give you a lot more control over slideshows than iMovie. Recommend trying the demo on their site if you're frustrated by the lack of control in iMovie and want your pictures to move.
Abandoned? - The non-App Store version is listed as 5.2. Their web site (blog posts) does not appear to have been updated in almost a year. Sadly, it would appear that another good App has bit the dust.
Developer unresponsive to reports of serious bug - I view this app as a necessary evil in my photography workflow. It certainly gives significant control over the 'Ken Burns' effects that are so desirable to many people and it does so in a way that is more accessible than, say, Final Cut or similarly advanced editing program. For this reason alone, it stays in my repertoire of apps. However, it has a number of issues that make using the app more difficult than it should be. For example, the rendering is ungodly slow. Rendering out a 1080P slideshow to ProRes or H264 is painfully time consuming. About a year ago, I started experiencing a serious bug that would black out the preview window when trying to preview keyframe movements. This made it extremely difficult to work with the program because I couldn't actually see the results of the movements I was setting up. I would have to set up all the movements for the whole slideshow, render it, and then go back and fix any problems after seeing them in the rendered file. This was a serious bottleneck because of the previously mentioned slow renders (often an hour or more to render 5-15 minutes of video.) I have written to the developer numerous times over the last year pointing out the problem, sending example files, sending screen capture videos of the problem and still haven't gotten a solution. In fact, the developer has chosen not to respond at all. This is frustrating to say the least. Hopefully, the bugs will be worked out and the rendering times improved. However, after waiting patiently for almost a year, I don't have much hope for that anymore. Caveat Emptor.
