Holiday Gift Idea #12: Transfer videotape or movie film to a USB flash drive instead of a DVD for those computer people on your list. We can save the movies as MPEGs, MOVs, AVIs, or any common file type you would like. The files are ready to copy onto the recipient’s computer to share on Facebook or YouTube, as well as to do their own edits if they chose.🖱📼🎥🔋
Holiday Gift Idea #10
If your generation is lucky enough to be in possession of non-film photographs of your ancestors from the late 1800s, such as these tintypes, why not digitize them for Christmas? The Photographic Depot staff has years of experience with imaging these old mediums to bring the most detail possible out of them, now incorporating an HDR process.
Collect all the family’s old photographs and bring them into the Photographic Depot for a shoebox scan. Once the photos are digitized, they can be saved on your computer to post on social media or share through email. We can also print additional copies in larger sizes for you to give to your family, as well as create a slideshow with the images on DVD for you to watch at holiday gatherings.
Holiday Gift Idea #8: Print an enlargement of a cute family picture or their favorite vacation place and have it framed with a custom cut mat. We will correlate the colors in the photo, mat, frame, and even the recipient’s home. Custom cut mats placed in a standard size frame are a more affordable option than custom framing.
Holiday Gift Idea #6: Old undeveloped film that was stored properly and not exposed to heat may still have images able to develop. What a great surprise it is to find unknown pictures of a recently deceased loved one over the holidays!
