photos, video clips, VHS and audio clips.
There are 2 ways of supplying digital photos:

along with which group of pictures go with each of your song choices (e.g. 001-024 with song “At Last” by Etta

video (e.g. 001.jpg, 002.jpg). Place the photos that will accompany each song in a separate folder. Name each
folder with the number of the order in which you would like those photos to appear in your video, followed by
the song title that will accompany them.

Place a numbered sticky note on the BACK of each picture or write the number very lightly with a pencil. Do not

envelopes. I do not suggest zip-lock bags because of humidity.

photo CD of all your retouched and color corrected photos no matter which format you use to send us your
