You may already know the exact pictures you’d like to include in your DVD Slide Show, but here are some additional tips that may help.

  • Choose pictures that are candid and show character.
  • Choose a mix between close ups and group photos Choose photos that show the most important stages in someones life
  • Choose more horizontal shots than vertical shots. The reason for this is that TV screens are wider than they are high, so horizontal shots fill the screen and look much better. Vertical shots will appear on the TV screen with black borders on each side (or will need dramatic cropping). There’s not a problem with the borders, but too many vertical shots one after the other won’t be as pleasing to look at as horizontal ones.
  • Stay away from photos that are too small or out of focus
