|Why transfer photographs
Transferring photographs to
video has become very popular! These are often referred to
as photo montages. A montage of special family photos set to
music is a
very unique gift that will become a treasured heirloom. In addition to
photos, we can also transfer newspaper clippings, diplomas, military
papers, logos, etc.
Photo montages are
very special gifts and are often produced for special occasions such as:
- Weddings, anniversaries, graduations, retirements and birthdays
- Funerals - as tributes honoring the
life of a deceased loved one
- Special features at banquets and fundraisers for church, school, teams, civic and
business events, trade shows, exhibits, etc.
What does a photo montage
The montage will open with
broadcast quality titles and then each photo is displayed for
approximately 6 seconds. If your montage requires music, the client must supply the music to us. Music you have chosen
that is appropriate for the individual or event is incorporated into
the montage. These songs can be on CD/MP3 etc. and if the correct
rendition is on youtube then a link can be emailed. Generally pictures will be displayed at a cadence of about 10 per
minute so a 3 minute song should have approximately 30 pictures with
it. You may certainly deviate somewhat from this guideline (plus or
minus 20% is usually 'ok') - but you risk having the images shown at
too fast or too slow a pace. The photos are all digitally processed and
arranged so that as the first photo fades out, the next photo is
smoothly fading in. Often we receive
comments that the photos on the montage looked better than the
actual photographs. This is because each photo is cropped to best
display the central content of the picture and then enlarged to
fill the size of a television screen.

screens (or captions) are added to the opening and
closing of the montage. Smooth digital, cross-fades and other transitions are
used between photos.
- The original photos are
returned to you. They are not harmed via the digitization process.
