These can be from a simple looping show of slides or a multi-chapter slide show - allowing you to have individual slide shows for different groups of slides.
See our Pricing/Order form for the various options. We use Apple Final Cut Pro X, Adobe After Affect CC, Adobe Premier Pro CC, or Boinx Fotomajico (something you can easilty use) to provide you the best image and slide show quality.
Our prices are very simple. When you select the service you wish, we have no extra add-on items to complete your order. You do not pay extra for DVD's or for special attention.
Think about it. you pay for the scanning services, you must store it on something - be it a CD or DVD. For this reason the media is included in the price of the scan.
Additional we provide Millenniata M-Disc Archival Quality storage media for a small additional fee (you still get the DVD included in the original price).
A note about media. When saving your images to a DVD, this is not a DVD that you would play on your TV DVD player, as that unit does not normally read a DVD data disc.
TV DVD's use a different format, which is why you get a DVD Slide Show made from your data images. An exception to this will be the new Blu-Ray DVD players that are able to typically read data images from a disc.
Since the images are large, we can also make a folder will smaller versions of the images for your TV when viewing from you DVD player.
Unsure about what you are ordering? Try our sampler packages for slides or prints - only $45.- which includes the media and plus USPS shipping.
You will actually receive the actual image quality (2000 ppi) and not a file reduced in size for email, etc. - just as you would receive the final product.
About our pricing - you will typically find three price ranges - we are mid-tier in the pricing ranges that you will typically find.
What is the difference? Sites that charge considerably less typically are very automated, may ship things offshore, and do not offer the one on one semi-custom service that a shop such as ours provides.
Working as a semi-custom shop, we strive to provide the greatest value possible, along with quality service.
You will notice a considerable quality difference in what we provide, versus the chain or mass market scanning services.
We also provide custom services to meet your specialized needs.
We do not follow today's new norm - We DO NOT ship your pictures to another firm or country.
We do ALL our work in house and we strive on providing you the best service that would not be possible if your photos were shipped offshore or another location to process.
We are proud of our customer service and quality of work. See customer feedback
