There’s something quite sad about the speed in which life passes by. Youth turns into middle-age in the blink of an eye, and friendships, family and relationships all come and go in what seems like no time at all.
But since 1816, when the very first successful image was taken using a camera, moments in time have been able to remain preserved forever. A simple photograph captures the mood, atmosphere and emotion of a period in time, allowing anybody to come back and re-live it whenever they feel a strong desire to do so.
On certain occasions, a whole collection of photographs replaces the need for just one, traditional singular photo, creating an album that is both rich in sentiment and worthy of the feeling of nostalgia it creates within others.
If you’re a lover, a parent, a scholar or a traveler, you’ll have experienced this first hand. Photographic collections of magical Christmases with young children, wide-eyed with joy sitting before a stack of wrapped presents are one of a parent’s most treasured possessions.
Trips across the globe to a far away land, where the camera is used as frequently as the shoes on your feet are another popular reason for photographic collections. New people, adventures and, of course, landmarks all take up the film inside your beloved camera. Those who couldn’t be there with you can then experience your journey with as if they were there with you, and live every moment as though it were theirs.
But while photographs mean the world to people, they also provide a whole lot of fun along the way. Shots of party-goers making fools of themselves always draws laughs when friends and family reunite.
Editing now means all kinds of effects can be put on to a photo, ensuring a boring picture is well and truly a thing of the past.
Photo’s are also a great hobby. Collecting snaps of sunsets, scenery, events, and more is a popular way to unwind among the artistically minded.
Then, of course, there’s the business side of things. Photographs make perfect accompaniments to presentations. They also look great on websites, blogs and shopping pages.
As quality now is the highest it’s ever been, with pixel-ratios that test the human eye to its limit, there’s never been a better time to get photographs working for you or your business. As was once said, “a good picture speaks a thousand words.”
Preserving Photographs and Maximizing their Value
While there are now many methods of preserving a photograph, depending on what type you have (film or digital), one of the most important things to consider is whether or not they remain easily accessible after they’ve been secured. While a memory card tucked away inside a draw is safe, it doesn’t allow easy access to your pictures. Loading up the computer, unpacking the memory stick and opening up pictures just isn’t convenient, and isn’t an enjoyable thing to do.
While cloud based methods of storage and backing up are becoming ever more popular, again, they have their drawbacks. Pictures (or anything, for that matter) can only be viewed on a device with an active internet connection. TV’s, computers and more do often come with internet connections readily available, but that just opens up another drawback with cloud based systems: the lack of any tangible product to send or distribute.
Photo to DVD
DVD’s have been used for over a decade now to display moving imagery, or store large amounts of data on. The average DVD can fit thousands of photographs on to it, meaning virtually any collection would fit straight on to one disk. It would then, naturally, be portable, tangible, and ready to store, use or share whenever desired.
Using a photo to DVD service ensures all of your data gets transferred without any problems, and, if you aren’t all that tech-minded, will also help you fit the maximum number of files on to a disk using special storage enhancing techniques.
Other advantages of using a photo to DVD service include a relatively low cost attached to the service, especially when compared to printing each individual picture, or buying expensive memory cards.
There’s also an ability to then burn, share, transfer or send your files as you so desire. Your data can then afterwards be used digitally, or stored via a cloud-based system, allowing you to keep hold of a real-life copy and a cyber one.
DVD disks also allow the option for photo editing to be used. In some instances, narration, music, video clips and more can accompany a photograph or a collection of pictures.
A popular way of using photo’s to their sentimental max is to make use of a photo slideshow. Using music, effects and different editing techniques, memorable days, or periods in your life can be brought back to life again by way of that well-made slide show.
These slideshows are great for presentations of all sorts, whether it be for commercial use, in the form of a company presentation like was mentioned earlier, or simply for personal use.
Imagine the whole of the family sitting down to watch a slideshow of your honeymoon pictures after they’ve been converted to DVD. A truly special moment that can be shared by all.
