Scan Photos to DVD or USB Flash Drive


















What is a DVD PhotoShow?

A DVD Slide Show is produced for special occasions such as anniversaries, birthdays, graduations, retirements, funeral service, memorial service, mothers day, fathers day, school concerts, musicals, weddings, vacations, and the list goes on. The photos are scanned at 600 dpi and saved as digital files for use with the DVD Slide Show. Once you insert the DVD into your home DVD player the Slide Show starts with a Hollywood style main menu with a background music track. The main title of your show is displayed on the TV screen. At this point you have the option of pressing the play button on your DVD unit or DVD remote to start the show. Once the show starts each picture one after another is displayed, normally held on the TV screen for eight seconds each. There will be a pan & scan transition with a cross fade dissolve between each photo that smoothly fades out the photo as the next photo fades in and so on. Background music will be playing for the full duration of the Slide show.

Step 1 » We digitally scan your photos into our video editing systems with the latest Microtek scan technologies. If you are sending us your digital pictures on a memory card, flash drive or CD, we import your pictures into our editing system and it is from these pictures that we produce to analog and digital productions. We do not alter your original pictures in any way.

Step 2 » We'll then digitally restore if needed, the scanned or imported photos to their former glory with our PictuRescue System, utilizing Digital ICE and ColoRescue state of the art digital editing techniques.

Step 3 » Now that we've restored your pictures, it's time to save them.

JPEG file If you’re sure that you’ll only view your images on TV we will save each photo as a JPEG file, these are the files that we use for the DVD Photoshow, which compresses the picture file size for normal viewing on a television. This format loses some image quality during compression, but the loss isn’t noticeable on a standard TV.
TIFF file - If you’re planning on printing, editing or archiving your photos or if you’re uncertain how you’ll use them in the future, it is best for you to have them digitally scanned and saved as digital  TIFF files. These digital picture files are then saved to a CD or DVD picture disc only, accessible through your personal computer CD or DVD Rom drive. This IS NOT a DVD PhotoShow. This format preserves detail and color information, which will give you maximum flexibility. You can always save a copy of a TIFF file as a JPEG, but you can’t create a high-quality TIFF image from a JPEG.

Option's & Add-ins

Custom Music -  The addition of music to the background of a Slide Show brings real meaning to your DVD production. Each production includes up to a 1 hour royalty-free background music track. If you would rather use your own custom music we can use your audio CD’s, audio cassettes, reel to reel tape or vinyl records. If you send in music that is not in a digital form, such as; audio cassette, reel to reel tape or vinyl record we must first convert the music to a digital form before we can use it. See our audio transfer page for conversion fees. A flat rate of $20 will cover up to 1 hour of synchronization and edit of music added to your show. If you don't have the music, but know what songs you want we can usually purchase the music for you for additional fees of course.

Quick tips in preparation for your scanned photos
Picture selection

photo show to dvdChoose your best photos for us to scan. We can enhance faded color and sharpen some fuzziness with image-editing software, but it’s best to start with clear, vibrant images whenever possible. The better your photo is, the better your scan will be. Our photo scanner has different settings for attributes such as output type, resolution, sharpening, exposure, and color saturation. Although the default values usually provide optimal results, we can fine-tune these settings in our software to bring out the best of your photos.
