Video slideshows are efficient, reliable and portable. Most video files play well on the average Mac or Windows machine, making them a great cross-platform choice. No matter how well planned an event; sometimes you just won’t know what type of computer will be available.
Videos come in a variety of formats and variations, from AVI to MOV. Selecting the most appropriate option can be a little daunting but it doesn’t have to be. Shoebox Memories creates slideshows in DVD and MP4 video formats which can be used across many platforms.
What tips do you have about projecting a photo slideshow at an event? We’d love to hear from you!
Far beyond any self-made PowerPoint presentation, at Shoebox Memories we take your memories to the next level! We have more than 12 years of experience creating slideshows for special events, and are happy to work with you to meet your needs!
Provide photos, slides, and video clips to include. We'll scan your photos or provide you with a URL so you can upload them yourself. Do be sure to keep picture quality in mind. Low resolution images, like those from a mobile phone which are typically 72 dpi, will impact the quality of your slideshow. When we scan images for you, we adjust the image to 800 dpi to ensure the final product is crisp and clear.
We look forward to helping make your event memorable. Contact us today!
Do you have a slideshow you’d like to share during an upcoming event? Display setups differ by location and you’ll want to be sure your event runs smoothly. Whether it’s a bar or bat mitzvah, rehearsal dinner, wedding, baby shower, memorial, or conference, we’ve got some great tips to help make sure your presentation plays perfectly.
Where will your slideshow be shown? If your event is in someone's home, do you plan to play it indoors with a TV/DVD player or outdoors with a projector? How will audio be played? If you are holding your event at a restaurant or reception hall the easiest thing is to ask the event planner you are working with. They will be able to tell you what's available, and what you need to bring.
Wherever and however you plan to display your slideshow, be sure to give yourself ample time before your event to ensure everything you’ll need is ready. It is also a good idea to schedule a test run before the event begins, so you can fine tune your setup without the pressure of a waiting audience.
We highly recommend projectors as they are excellent vehicles to use when displaying slideshows to any size group. We’ve provided guidance below on preparing your slideshow for a projector/TV display. Solid preparation will ensure you’re able to relax and enjoy your event. Good luck!
