The Perfect Holiday Memento
On my luxurious cruise on the Superstar Virgo I took many digital images. The sights of Phuket, Penang, James Bond Island, and KL were breathtaking and I had no problem snapping off a couple of hundred pictures with my trusty Olympus digital camera. I wanted to share my experience with my family and friends in a better way than just showing them the pictures on the back of the camera, or on a computer screen, or on prints stuck in an album.
I found this wonderful service on the web through a friend, called www.weddingday2dvd.com. Although they specialise on wedding pictures, they are happy to work with any still imagery that you may have. What they do is so effective and totally transforms the way you view your holiday snaps. I sorted out what images I wanted included in the presentation and the order in which they are to be presented. They took my digital picutres, and the ones taken by the crew when you go on shore leave, and created a dynamic DVD presentation complete from them, complete with ambient background music. Just pop the disc into my DVD player and away we go! The best thing about it is that they add movement to the presentation. On one slide of my partner and myself standing on James Bond Island, the screen starts zoomed in on the James Bond Island sign, and then zooms out to show the whole frame - absolutely brilliant.
Price is quite reasonable and depends on the number of images to be included (a small additional fee applied for scanning of printed photos). However, unlike other similar services, I am allowed to make as many copies of the DVD that I like so that I can share my memories with my friends and family.
