The only things I can think of that are not 'PowerPoint-like software' and have a chance at doing *all* of the things you list are video/DVD creation programs, though some of those probably 'make copies of photos and store them in a folder specific for this'.
They will probably require you to do a 'render' at the end before giving the presentation, and most folks will need you to render it before you send it, but hey I think they might give you most of what you asked for including not being PowerPoint.


Good luck.
