When was the last time that you viewed your slides? If
you are like most people, it’s been a very long time. Setting up the
screen and projector can be difficult (and disappointing too, if the
slide jams in the projector or if the projector lamp is burned out).
This hassle need not happen again because your slides can be
transferred to video!
Often our clients tell us that they have several thousand slides. You
may save considerably on your transfer fee by reviewing the slides
first and removing duplicates, those that are not in
focus, or those which were
poorly composed, etc. Our clients usually find that there are
a number of "vacation" slides that only picture a mountain or a
beach and may not be as meaningful as those that
include images of friends and relatives.
There are two types of slide transfer:
1. High Resolution Scanning - By this method your slides will
be converted to files on a CD-ROM so you can easily edit
them in a photo editor, print them out, or e-mail them to family and

to 4000dpi scans available upon request at a much larger file size.
2. Slide Montage - The transfer of slides to DVD or media file
- a standard music track (the mood is light nostalgia
- opening/closing titles
- standard transitions (as one image fades
out, another fades in)
When choosing to have your slides put into a Slide
Montage, please keep in mind that horizontally configured slides
transfer better than vertical slides due to the shape of a television
screen. The examples shown below illustrate this.
Pricing for each type of slide transfer is shown below:
All slides must be numbered in the order in
which they are to be transferred. Preferably, slides should be loaded
into standard "80 count" or "140 count" Kodak-style slide
