Memorial / Tribute / Personal History or Biography  DVDs (aka Movies from Photos): 

Create a movie from your song and pictures - includes panning & zooming of most of your photos, and a cross-dissolve from one photo to the next.  Other transitions available if you are interested.  If you would like text across a photo as it is being shown, or a block of text on a background “slide” (color choices are available) that option is available!

How many photos and/or text slides will you need?  As the optimum time to have a photo on the screen is about 4 seconds, with about a 4 second transition on each side of the photo (or text “slide”), a good way to estimate the number of photos needed is to allow 5 photos or text “slides” for each minute of music.  Of course, if you have a few more or few less, we will be able to work with you!

Compatiblity  We produce our multimedia presentations in a high quality DVD-R format.  They are compatible with most DVD players manufactured; however, not all manufacturers adhere to the formatting standards.  Please check the compatibility of your DVD player before ordering, as Talking Puffins Design Studio does not issue refunds due to equipment incompatibility.
