Photo Submission Guidelines
How Many Photos DoYou Need?

The best viewed and received slideshows are between 50 and 350 photos. However, you can have as many photos as you want. We suggest not going below the minimum of 30 photos.

Submitting Digital Photos

Organize the photos that you want to include in your slideshow putting them into the order that they will be displayed. Simply rename the file to the number and include your initials (ex. “jms75.jpg, jms76.jpg “ ) and so on.

When you are ready you can upload your photos to us using Zoomfoot which is a free photo uploading service. You can also submit your digital photos to us on a CD or a Flash Drive, which will be returned to you with your DVD Slideshow.

If you will be sending your images on a CD or Flash Drive, please contact us so that we know to expect a package from you. 

Submitting Print Photos to Be Scanned

Organize and number your photos in the order they are to appear in your show. Please include your initials  as well as the number sequence on the back of each photo. 

For example, if your name is Jane M. Smith and you want your image to appear as the 56th image in your show, you will put on the back of photo- "jms56" and so on.

Use a sticky note or marker to place the number on the back of your photo. Do not use a ballpoint pen. All of your original photos will be returned to you in the package with your DVD Photo Slideshow.

Please keep in mind that if you are submitting both digital images and photo prints you will need to keep track of where within the digital images the print photos will appear and be sure that you have the correct sequence of numbers on the photos so that they will appear in the correct order in your show. 

Photos and memorabilia submitted to us for scanning are $.50 each and include basic image editing if needed.

Shipping Your Print Photos and Memorabilia

Be sure to package your photos and/or CD/Flash Drive securely and ship them US Priority Mail or Express Mail using a flat rate envelope or box. Priority Mail takes 2-3 days and Express Mail is over night in most cases. Be sure to get tracking information and insurance.. If you are sending music as well, you can include it in the same package with your photos.

You can ship your package using whichever shipping service you prefer, although the postal service is generally cheaper than UPS or FedEx. . Whatever method you choose, be sure to get tracking information and let us know which service you will be using.  We will send you a confirmation email when we receive your package.

Be sure to inlude your instructions for the sequence of how your photographs are to appear in your DVD Slideshow and any other pertinent information that will help us in putting your show together.

We will return your original photos to you unharmend along with a FREE CD of the digital images.

How to Organize Your Photos

Your slideshow should include a beginning, a middle and an end.

Organize your images in various ways until a story emerges.

This will make your show more interesting and easy to follow for the viewer.
