400 pictures later

The 50th Anniversary DVD pictures are now ready for the DVD producer.

In the past 2 weeks, I have taken over 200 pictures, sorted through numerous photo albums, had another 200 pictures scanned and all 400 pictures were collaged over 100 composites.

All in all, I am pretty pleased with how it all turned out. All in all, I am totally sick of using Photoshop Elements. I can't imagine doing this for a living, and I could never convert over 100% to Digital scrapbooking. Yes, it was pretty fast, but churning out composite after composite became quite tedious.

Here is one of the composites - it will be the 2nd slide on the DVD - kind of an "introduction" before diving into pictures from the 1950's:


I have also been researching appropriate "background music" for the DVD. No small feat given the audience ranges from 20 year olds to 90 year olds. I am sticking to "work related" tunes. A really good song is Five O'Clock World by the Vogues, a hit back in 1965 - you can listen to it here:



Now to clean things up for a photobook - I need to trim down the number of pages - I want to use MPIX, but the maximum number of pages they can bind into a book is 50. But I am going to take a break from all of the Photoshopping and do my real job for a while!

You're a pro! Wanna come do ours? My company is celebrating 100 years in 2015 and it's going to take that long to get everything together! Hopefully I won't be here that long...

Howdy,
I don't know that I've ever commented but visit your very enjoyable blog often - love the photos!
Anyhoo, thought I'd let you know that if you use Creative Memories Storybook Creator (free download), you can get up to 100 pages in their digital albums. I've made 3 and love, love, love them! Gonna make more! I hope to visit back here soon.
