Choosing A Photo Slideshow Company
Slideshow production companies are popping up all over the Internet. People are taking their digital and print pictures and having them placed on DVD’s as slideshows for personal use and for gifts for all occasions. People everywhere are hiring professional slideshow production companies to make engagement slideshows for wedding receptions, graduation slideshows, anniversary slideshows, birthday slideshows, memorial service slideshows, vacation slideshows, holiday slideshows, and just about anything you can think of slideshows. But how do you know which slideshow company to choose?
It use to be that when we took our photos of our special occasions: weddings, vacations, reunions, birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, family, friends, pets and so on, that we’d get the photos developed and place them in a photo album or a shoe box. A couple of our very favorites would be placed in frames. But, the photo album or shoebox would then sit on a shelf or under a bed or in a closet or somewhere where they’d be neglected and hardly ever looked at. In the meantime the photos themselves are drying out, cracking, and turning yellow. When we do go to look at them they’re never as good as we remember because they’ve aged.
Placing our photos on CD's or DVD's the photos will last much longer. They will not crack, fade or yellow. Future generations can enjoy the same quality in a hundred years as we can today.
Turning your photos into slideshows, also called video albums or photo montages, makes the photos fun to watch and more people will enjoy viewing them with you. So how do you know if you've found a quality custom slideshow company? An important rule of thumb to remember is, "If the price seems too good to be true, then it usually is". No real slide show creating company can give you quality work without putting quality time into it. The less the price, the less amount of time going into it. You might as well go buy yourself the cheapest slideshow software you can find and do it yourself. A quality slideshow creating company has invested thousands of dollars to be able to produce the highest quality work for the consumer. And they will spend the time needed to clean up your photos like removing red eye, color correcting old yellowed photos, removing crease marks and such and create a quality DVD that you can be proud of. The more time a company puts into creating your slideshow, the higher the cost of that slide show. Of course a higher price doesn't always mean better, there will always be those who overcharge. When comparing prices, don't forget to compare the contents of the package. This will make a tremendous difference in the pricing and the quality of the slideshow you receive. But don't fall for bogus charges such as transition charges. What are slideshows without transitions? So shop around, compare prices, packages, and view some slideshow samples.
Viewing samples is very important to choosing your company. If you’re satisfied with just the simple fade-in, fade-out photomontage style slideshows, then you have a lot of companies to choose from. If you want something fun, exciting, emotional, creative and unique, then there’s very few companies to choose from. Your memories are precious and your slide shows should reflect each occasion in a unique and creative way. To a true slideshow creator, creating quality slideshows is comparative to an artist who is creating yet another masterpiece that is worthy of displaying to everyone you know.
