Slideshows are the topic today. With just about everyone photographing just about everything these days, we all probably have a ton of photos hidden away. Loaded onto our computer hard drives, maybe we even burned them to a CD for safe keeping, or we have a few hundred on our memory cards. No matter where your photos, chances are you are not looking at them very often (unless they are framed and hanging on your wall). But what about all the other ones? You know, the snapshots that really get you smiling, the ones we often forget about. When we do finally see those again, we can remember the story about that photo like it was yesterday. But instead of those photos staying buried in a shoe box like days of old, we bury them digitally. Rarely, if ever, to be seen or heard from again. Now think, how easy it would be to just put a DVD in our home theatre systems and watch those photos play on tv, with some great music to go with them. Watch them whenever we want, with a lot less effort than searching endlessly for prints or digital files. SLIDESHOWS!! Slideshows on DVDs, labeled clearly, and stored next to your movie collection. Want to watch your wedding, vacation, birthday party, reunion? How amazingly convenient to just play a professionally made DVD, sit back, relax and enjoy. I have attached a 1 minute video of a senior session I did, that gives you an idea of what is possible. Unlike the days when my father would put the slides in to the old Kodak carousel, and click away (and add commentary as he went), slideshows today can be filled with slick transitions, great music and viewed in high definition. There are some pretty cool consumer level programs that will help you achieve an awesome looking slideshow for yourself. I'm sharing a couple of web addresses of companies that offer this, but I can't speak to their quality or product. www.photodex.com; www.smilebox.com; www.animoto.com I think you can even do some cool stuff in power point on your pc. The other option is you can hire someone like me to do it for you. Contact me through my website, all I need are your digital files (jpeg) and any descriptions you want to add to the photographs. I charge by the hour to do this type of work, so contact me for an estimate. Text can even be added to any picture, just like the way we used to write on the back of the photo (remember?). Either way, start enjoying the photographs you take, on that HD flat screen tv you have hanging on your wall. What a great way to reconnect with your family and friends, start bringing back those memories in a very enjoyable way. Talk again soon.
Great Idea. What a wonderful gift idea for a parent, grandparen - borrow their photos and give them back to them in video format.
