How to prepare Your Photo Montage Video - Photo Slide Show Pricing


1. Select your pictures - Any size and shapes may be used, however,  wallet size to an 8x10 work best. (Some pictures may need cropping) , be sure to indicate region of interest. All photographs must be removed from any packaging. Home videos can be added also...


2. Number the pictures - Line up your pictures across the table to see the story develop.  Number those pictures in sequence per segment on the back corner with a Pencil Do not press hard as this will leave an imprint on the picture which the camera will pick up.  DO NOT use a marker of ANY kind


3. Length of the videotape - Each picture remains on the screen from ~6 seconds, therefore, you may consider an average of 10 pictures per minute. There is no limit on how many pictures you can use.


4. Titles - Separate your pictures into groups to convey a clear message of Family trips, Weddings, Getting to know each other. Place your titles between each segment to define the next segment. Different songs can be used for the various portions as well which will also convey a special meaning. You can also add animated graphics and/or captioning to exemplify the moment.


5. Special Effects - Can add pizzazz to your video.  Use, but don't abuse, effects can actually be detrimental when misused. Planning,  a camera move across a picture, can add movement and add drama to your video.


6. Music - We have an extensive music library to select from or you may provide your own.  Best results come from CDs, although cassettes can be used. Provide enough music... use this formula; for every 10 pictures you will need 1 minute of music. So... 30 pictures would last about 3 minutes.


7. Segment your pictures -  keep your pictures grouped in separate 9 x 12 envelopes labeling each envelope with segment name, total number of pictures and there numbered sequence.  Include the name of the music segment used in the title as well as the name of the song  for that segment.
