Transfer your photos, scrapbook pages, artwork, certificates, etc. to video. Each image receives our individual attention. Vertical photos are cropped to fill the video screen and we adjust color and clarity to give you the best possible quality. Each image fades from one to another and special effects are added as deemed appropriate by our staff. All this attention to detail adds quality to your finished video.

Photo, Document or Artwork to Video...........................$2.50 per image

Add these extras to your video for a more professional finished appearance:

Titles or Dates $4 each
Background Music  $15.00

Examples of special edits include rearranging the order of video images after they are transferred or timing sound effects or music with particular images. Special edits are billed at $115 per hour.

 

Slides to Video:

There are two methods of transferring slides to video. Choose between our automated conversion method and having our staff handle each image individually. The price is different but so is the finished product.

Individually

Each image receives our individual attention. Vertical slides are cropped to fill the video screen and we adjust color and clarity to give you the best possible quality. Each image fades from one to another and special effects are added as deemed appropriate by our staff. All this attention to detail adds quality to your finished video. Use this method if your finished video will be used at a public showing such as a wedding reception, anniversary or birthday party. This is also an excellent option for making a video scrapbook of childhood memories.

$2.50 per image

Price includes special handling of each image, fades & special effects selected by our staff and one copy of the finished video on VHS or DVD.

Add these extras to your video for a more professional finished appearance:

Titles or Dates $4 each
Background Music  $15.00  

Automated

This method of transferring slides to video is less expensive because an automated machine is used during the transfer process. Video is recorded as each slide drops into the machine; therefore, the slide change or a few seconds of black is recorded between each image. Images do not smoothly fade from one to another, there are no special effects or color correction. Vertical images are cropped automatically by the machine. This process is the best option if your goal is to eliminate the storage space required by mountains of slides.

$0.89 per image

Price includes one copy of the finished video on VHS or DVD.

Add these extras to your video for a more professional finished appearance:

Titles or Dates $4 each
Background Music  $15.00  

Minimum charge $30.00. Although simple transfers don't require it, sometimes video transfers require special edit time. Examples of special edits include rearranging the order of video images after they are transferred or timing sound effects or music with particular images.

If you wish to combine shorter tapes onto one tape or DVD there is an additional charge of $2 per tape.
