How to organize your Photo Slideshow for
First make the tough decision -- which photos to choose and
which to lose. I suggest you make a "YES" pile and a "NO"
pile, putting all the photos that you may want to use in the
"YES" pile and all the rest in the "NO" pile. WARNING: This
step is way too much fun, so don't get caught looking at each
photo for more then a moment! Try to zero in on the photos
that will tell your story the best.
Gather all of your YES photos together and put them in
chronological order. Start with the early photos and work your
way forward to the more current. You may have some photos
or groups of photos that will work better in their own little
chronological sequences; such as, career, job or business
photos, house photos, lake home photos, vacations,
grand-kids, etc. You can even accent these by using a special
music theme for each group and perhaps even giving each
group its own title; for instance, you could place the title "Our
Babies" before the grandchildren group.
Number your photos on the back with either a pencil or
stickers (post-it notes work well). DO NOT USE a pen as the
ink may rub off onto the other photos. This is also the time to
start thinking about music and titles. You'll at least want a
greeting at the beginning and some closing statement at the
end of your video. For example, "Happy Anniversary Mom and
Dad" at the beginning and "With Love, From All Of Us" at the
end. Or, if you wish, you can be more personal and creative in
your titles. Why not use some poetry or a favorite quotation?
With your photos and personal selections I DO THE REST !
