Turn your family photos into a one-of-a-kind gift

What’s Included | Pricing | Order Preparation | FAQs

Picture it. The song that makes you think of your loved ones begins. A baby picture fades in and you watch as your child grows up. This is only one of the many possibilities you can achieve when you take those old photos and transfer them to a high-quality, long-lasting DVD.

Anniversaries, birthdays, family reunions, graduations, and farewells are a few great occasions to gather your special photos, select the perfect music and create a one-of-a-kind gift that is perfect for any occasion.

What’s Included with Your Photo Transfer

Digital High Resolution Scan

In order to obtain the best possible quality of the photos to be included in your production, we scan each photo individually. Although time consuming, the quality is well worth it.

Opening or Closing Title on Video

One title to either introduce your video production or a special message at the conclusion. We recommend a closing title for photo transfers.

Special Effects

Smooth transitions and professional special effects will complement your music selections.

Free CD or Data DVD

A free CD or data DVD with your slides saved as JPEG files is included at no additional charge with your minimum slide order. Share your slides on the Internet or make prints from your slides.

Background Music

We will add background music to the entire length of the transfer. This can be from our library of family-oriented, easy listening music or you can provide your own selection on CDs to bring your photos to life. See our additional services for supplying your own audio or custom audio to your transfer.

You may request a group of photos to correspond with a particular song. To accomplish this, you need to provide the audio CDs and instructions with your order (i.e. Envelope No. 1 – photos 1-35, CD title, song title, and track number).

Preparing Your Photos for Transfer

  1. Number Your Photos
    • Number all photos in the order that you want them to appear in your transfer. Each photo should be numbered on the back using pencil on an adhesive label if possible. DO NOT use “Post-It Notes” as they often fall off and could delay your order. If you are writing directly on the back of the photo and you omit or misnumber a photo, add a letter to the number (i.e. 1, 2, 3, 3a, 4, etc.).
    • When numbering your photos, please underline all numbers as the numbers 6 and 9 can be confused with each other. DO NOT use ink or marker on the back of your photos as it can damage the photo behind it.
  2. Select an Opening or Closing Title for Your Transfer
    “The Smith Family Memories”, “The Adventures of the Wells Family”, “The Johnsons” are a few suggestions. If a title is not desired, please indicate NO TITLE on the order form. Otherwise, we will begin your production with the title of “Memories.”
  3. Background Music
    Our easy listening music or customized background music is provided free of charge for photo to videotape orders at the time of transfer. We suggest you provide your own music on CDs for added sentimental value.
  4. Don’t Forget to Order Extra Copies
    • Store your master and watch the copy.
    • Copies make great gifts.
    • Share the cost with family and have copies for everyone.

  • What will I get back from my Photo Transfer?
    When your transfer is completed, all of your photos will be returned. Your transfer will be on a DVD-R with your custom title imprinted on the DVD if requested and a disc with all of your photos saved as .jpg files.

  • Will my DVD play on my DVD player?
    DVD-R disks are used for transferring your images to DVD. In order to take advantage of this technology, your DVD player MUST be compatible with DVD-R. 99% of DVD players manufactured in the past two years will play your DVD transfer. Please check your DVD player manual for compatibility or contact the manufacturer.
  • What is DVD-R?
    DVD-R is a disk onto which information (your video) can be written. Think of it as the same type of CD-R you may use to copy music files on your computer, however, the DVD-R can hold much more data.
