The holidays are a time for food, family and memories, both old and new. This year, instead of only taking new photos, create something memorable from your old ones. Give the best gift of all with one-of-a-kind photo slideshows that bring special memories to life. These digital gifts can easily be shared in person and online so everyone can enjoy it even if they can’t be there in person. We have three important things about our slideshows that we want you to know!

It’s never too early to get started.

If you’re thinking of this for the holidays, the time to get started is now. To keep your family enthralled, we recommend 150 – 175 photos for the ideal slideshow length. That may feel daunting and you may think you have too many photos to narrow it down to that number, but we promise you that it’s easier than it sounds! We have tried and true recommendations for how to organize and choose your favorite photos for any photo project, especially if they also need to be digitized. Remember, it’s important to trust your gut, there are some photos you just don’t need. You can find tips on photo organization and selection on our in-depth slideshow blog post here.

We do the heavy lifting.

Creating these unique family mementos is one of our specialities. You’ll work one-on-one with a consultant who can help you decide which photos to use, the best music to go with them and any title slides or special notes you want to include. You become a part of the creative process and you get to approve the final draft before we make you a beautiful, custom DVD that we return in a gift box. If you’d like extra copies to give away, we’ll put those in gift boxes too!

Slideshows are the gift that keeps on giving.

Whether you’re planning to view it together after Thanksgiving dinner or you’re going to share it with family all over the country to get in the holiday spirit, nothing brings a family together quite like the ability to relive past holidays and other important family memories.
