Preparing Your Slides for Transfer

1. Prepare Your Slides

  • Slides should be removed from carousels or slide trays, individually numbered, rubber-banded together and submitted in numbered packs. Each slide needs to be numbered in the upper right-hand corner. While numbering, should you omit or misnumber a slide, add a letter to the number (i.e. 1, 2, 3, 3a, 4, etc.).
  • When numbering your slides, please underline all numbers as the numbers 6 and 9 can be confused with each other. Slides received unnumbered will be numbered at TMT at an additional charge of $.03 per slide.


2. Select a Title for Your Transfer

  • "The Smith Family Memories", "The Adventures of the Wells Family", "The Johnsons" are a few suggestions. If a title is not desired, please indicate NO TITLE on the order form. Otherwise, we will begin your production with the title of "Memories."


3. Don't Forget to Order Extra Copies

  • Store your master and watch the copy.
  • Copies make great gifts.
  • Share the cost with family and have copies for everyone.


4. Package your slides

  • Bring your slides to Stellhorn Photo, located at:

10310 Coldwater Road

Pine Valley Mall

Fort Wayne, IN 46825

FAQs About Your Slide Transfer

Why would I need a high resolution file and a low resloution file of each slide?

We do this to make it easier on you.


Hi Res Images: If you were to try to view your slide images on your computer a high resolution it could take a very long time for each image to load because of the large size of the file. Use these image for making photographs or any type of Photo Shop work.


Low Res Images: These are the images that you would use to view on your computer.(If you see a slide image in low res that your would like to see in hi res, just look for the same slide number in the Hi Res folder) They will load much more quickly. You could also use these images for sharing over the internet.


How many images can I fit on a 2-hour DVD?

Approximately 1,000 images appearing on screen for 7 seconds each. There will also be a 1 second fade between each image.


What will I get back?

When your transfer is completed, all of your slides will be returned along with any boxes in which they were stored. Your transfer will be on a DVD-R. In addition to your slide show (with music background) on DVD, you will receive a CD (or DVD-R Data disc) with all of your slides saved as JPEG files!


What kind of picture quality will I see on my DVD Slideshow?

If your DVD Player and Television monitor are connected correctly you will get the best picture possible! The .jpg images that you receive will be much higher resolution than your television is capable of reproducing.


Should I get my slides scanned at 2000, 3000 or 4000 dpi?

2000 dpi should be all that you will need. It will produce an excellent 4"x6" and 5"x7" print and is much more than you need for producing the best possible picture for a DVD Slidshow.


You might consider 3000 dpi if you want to crop the image or make 8"x10" prints.

4000 dpi for large prints or intricate Photoshopping.


Can I have extra titles through out my transfer?

Yes. See additional services for details.


Can I have extra copies made for my family?

Yes. See additional services for details.


Will my DVD play on my DVD player?

DVD-R disks are used for transferring your images to DVD. In order to take advantage of this technology, your DVD player MUST be compatible with DVD-R. 99% of DVD players manufactured in the past two years will play your DVD transfer. Please check your DVD player manual for compatibility or contact the manufacturer.


What is DVD-R?

DVD-R is a disk onto which information (your video) can be written. Think of it as the same type of CD-R you may use to copy music files on your computer, however, the DVD-R can hold much more data.
