How to Order a Slideshow
What Slides and Photos should I select for My Slideshow!
Try to ensure you select your best photos and slides for display on your
Slideshow. Slides and Photos that are out of focus are very noticeable
when displayed at the size of your television screen. All sizes and
shapes of photographs will go onto your Slideshow, Horizontal photos
are better than vertical ones, as they are the same shape as your
television screen, vertical shots are fine, but do not always fit to the edges
of the screen. Square photos (4 x 4) are also good as they can often
be zoomed to fit the whole of the screen.
Where possible select photos where the subject is in the middle of the
picture as it is likely we can zoom in and enlarge the image during
display. Select images that are interesting to you and have
meaning. Try not to have a whole series of photos that
are all the same, 6 shots of "John" blowing out his
birthday candles would be on screen for over a minute, or mix up your shots so that
they do not follow in order. However the choice is yours and we will
always build your Slideshow exactly as you want it to look.
When selecting slides try not to select too many where the slide is very
dark, these will be made brighter during scanning process but this
can also cause grain to appear where the dark area has been improved, when
we do brighten dark images, we always use electronic grain correction
software to reduce the grain to a minimum. Where slides are very
dirty have lots of dust and scratches on them we use Digital ICE to reduce this
effect, this can be very effective but will not remove every bit of dirt or
Try never to touch your slides as fingerprints can
cause serious damage and are very difficult to remove.
Step 1. Gather Together You're Images !
Decide at this stage if your Slideshow is to have a theme and
an order or is just a delightful mishmash of your Treasured
Memories. If your Slideshow is themed for example a Wedding, put them
into the order you would like them shown. If no order is selected the
producer will decide on the order when putting the show together. If you
have decided to declare an order, put the photographs in the correct order and
number them and declare that they must be shown in order. If
sending 35mm Slides that are difficult to decide which way up they should be,
it is useful if you mark the edge of the slide or photo with an
arrow pointing at the Top.
Do not write on Photographs in Ink or Felt Tip Pen as this can damage
the photograph beneath it.
If you are sending 35mm slides of varying age, please mark the
view from side, as some older slides do not state this and the viewing side is
sometimes difficult to ascertain with older film types.
Step 2. Decide on the Cover Picture
Our premier service has some additional features for example, your
corrected images will be transferred in JPEG format onto your DVD or separate
disc. Allowing you to archive them onto a computer and if required print
them. Slides and Photos and Negatives are scanned at a higher
resolution to allow printing and all copies of your DVD & Case Cover are
personalised with a picture from your show and your Show Title. This
makes the show an excellent gift package and is now provided Free of
charge. The Order Form Defaults to Yes when ordering.
Step 3. Length of Slideshow!
Decide how many images (Photographs, Slides or Negatives) you would
like in your Slideshow. We recommend that the maximum size of a Slide
Show is about 200 - 250 photographs, slides or negatives, (We can
squeeze a few extra on if required). If you have more than this there is
no problem we will cut more than 1 Slideshow, there is no extra
cost all over 50 are charged at the current rate for additional
images. Remember that an average time on screen including the Transition
(Time between one Photograph and the Next) is about 12 seconds. However
you can decide how long each Photograph will last if you wish, just indicate
the time in seconds for each photo on your Order Form. Also remember that
the Music and Photographs need to end at the same time, some slides may be made
slightly longer or shorter to accommodate this.
Step 4. Decide on You're Music!
Remember that Each Slide is about 12 seconds long (Unless you have
decided differently) You can decide what order the Music can be played.
If you have chosen an order of each photograph you can work out approx when a
particular photograph and song will be shown. If you have a requirement
that a particular song starts exactly on a particular photograph we can
accommodate this if you let us know. Don't forget to send us your music
CD or if you wish we will purchase an Easy listening CD from the list on our
order form, there is an additional charge for this service. In addition
one track of your music will be put onto your Menu if you wish you can select this
track or we will put an appropriate track on the Menu for you. We do not
use copies of Music, it must be the original CD.
Step 5. Decide on You're Title!
Just like any good film your Slideshow can have a Title. You can
have a Text Title displayed on your first slide, for example, "Jack and
Jill's Wedding Day" once you have decided on the Title just enter it on
the Order Form. If you don't want one just type None. If you don't
request Title, the show will be called "Memories"
Step 6. Decide if you are going to put text on the show!
If you want text on your photographs you will need to send us a
listing explaining where the text is to appear.
We usually put the text on for approx half the time the slide is
displayed so that it does not detract from the image, but once again you can
choose, just let us know your requirements. You can also add full text
slides into your slideshow, for example if you wanted to say that the next set
of images were of our trip to the Zoo, again just send us a note with your
photos and slides saying what you want. Current prices for text and text
slide are on our price list.
Step 7. Complete our Order Form!
Complete the Slideshow Order
form and Submit it to us, we will confirm we have received
your order and await your materials and Payment. If you want
