Video with photos

Creating videos with my 20k+ photos is a huge personal project. Today I managed to create the 50th-anniversary celebration of the Holy Martyrs Day School, HMADS, in Bayside, NY. I added the photos to video today, to our Bayside Digital. 

Here is the link to our videos on Facebook. We will add more.

This encourages me to proceed, slowly but surely to tackle the huge digital mountain of photos. One of the most time-consuming issues is adding text on each and every photo, besides finding music to go along with it. However, the end result will be more useful. After a while, if someone, other than me is looking at them, will have some idea as to what the photo is all about.

How do you present your digitized photos? Let’s hear from you

Don’t you wish you had all your paper photos digitized?

It had been one of my goals to get all those numerous boxes of photos, so many photo albums and variety of photos digitized. When my son Alex, who has digital media background, gladly took on that enormous job. Friends liked to have theirs digitized too. Whoever we talked to, they all had similar wish to get their life stories digitized.

Hence, we set up Bayside Digital with professional scanners and offering our services to help archive family stories.

Rue PonceletAs my son was digitizing, he kept asking questions about people in the photos. I decided to add to photos brief description, added here some samples. This service will be available too at Bayside Digital. Every time you keep telling the same story, whenever you share your photos. That’s solved by captioning! It will be useful also while sharing in a slide show, special family celebrations and parties. At times memories fade over time and start wandering where it was, what year and who was that acquaintance in the photo.
