Slideshow Preparation

Preparing for your Celebration or Memorial DVD (slideshow)

Photos - 70-150 photographs in the order you would like them to appear in the slideshow (photo scanning included - extra charges will apply for scanning of slides) (all photos need to be removed from albums, frames, books etc.)

Music – the amount of music will depend on how many photos you will be using. Generally speaking 70 photos will create a 7 minute slideshow and you will need 7 minutes of music and 150 photos will create a 15 minute slideshow. You can bring CD’s, bring the songs on a flash drive or email them to us. You will need to provide a list of the songs in the order you would like.

If you do not have the music please provide the song title and artist and we will search for and download the music on your behalf (extra charges may apply for this service)

Intro Slide – An introductory slide will be designed for your slideshow. Please have the text you would like on this slide written out and placed at the beginning of the photos.

Text captions - Dates and locations of special events, favourite sayings etc. Please limit the number of photos that will have text to around 10 or 12 photos. Text on selected slides adds a special ‘something’ to your slideshow but having text on too many slides simply makes it overwhelming to those watching. For a photo that you wish to have text on, please write out the text and place it in front of the photo with a note stating this text is to go on the photo.

Text Slides – up to 3 slides with text and no photo can be added to each slideshow. Please have these printed clearly and placed in the sequence of photos where you would like them to appear in the slideshow.

Disk Image – decide on which photo you would like to have printed on the face of the DVD.

Background Images for the Intro Slide, Text Slides and Disk Image will be selected during your appointment time.

Please allow 2-3 weeks for your Celebration DVD to be ready.
RUSH orders required within one week will be charged a $50 RUSH FEE.
As volume dictates whether or not rush orders can be accommodated, it is recommended that you plan ahead and allow at least 2-3 weeks turnaround time.

Memorial DVD's have the Rush fee incorporated into the price
and will be completed in a matter of days due to the nature
of Memorial DVD's
