don't live in Tennessee, can you still do my slideshow?
We create slideshows for people all over the
a little nervous about placing my photos in
is understandable. And although there is always
a risk when placing anything in the mail, to
this date, we have never had any photos lost
or damaged in the mail. However, we cannot
be responsible for mail via any mail carrier
system. Here are some suggestions to help
your photos arrive safely: Package your photos
well and place them in zip-loc baggies. Package
your photos so that they will not move around
in the box. If you are sending us your pictures
on CD, make a copy for yourself. We recommend
priority or overnight shipping and when possible,
use the mail carriers boxes that they provide
(which are free), and always
insure your package. Here
at Sands of Time Multimedia Creations we handle
your pictures as if they were our own. We leave
them in the packaging until it is time to scan
them and then we carefully place them back.
Q. If we find less expensive slideshows elsewhere, will you match prices?
A. No. We will not match prices for the same reason that if you were to find a diamond seller selling 1-carat low quality diamonds for a low price and expect a high quality diamond seller to match the price, he would never do it. We won't either because we know our slideshows are the best on the market. We have researched others, ordered DVD's from others, and we know we are putting much more care, time, and quality into our services than any of our competition. Hands down we are the best. In order to lower our prices, we would have to lessen the time we put into the slideshows which would mean low quality slideshows like what our competition is putting out. We won't place our name on anything that isn't the highest of quality. To date we have 100% customer satisfaction and the highest percentage of our customers come from repeat customers and referrals. We love making people happy, and it shows!
kind of payments do you accept?
accept Master Card, Visa, Debit Cards, Money
Orders & Cashier Checks.
I send you slides or negatives to make pictures
from? What is the cost for scanning?
We do not charge extra for scanning slides, negatives,
Q. Can I scan
my own photos?
although we do not charge extra to scan your photos
for you, you can choose to scan them yourself,
but please use the following guidelines: 4
x 6 or larger should be scanned at a minimum of
300dpi, 3 ½ x 5 at a minimum of 400 dpi,
2 ½ x 2 ½ at a minimum of 600 dpi,
any smaller than this should be at a minimum of
720 dpi. The higher the dpi, the better the quality.
If too small of a dpi is used, then the picture
will not look good when displayed at a large size
for television screens.
are photo editing services?
editing services are done to fix flawed pictures.
Faded, over-exposed, scratched, torn, & yellowed
pictures are restored. It also includes cropping,
brightening, correcting red-eye, leveling tilted
pictures and more. We include at least 1 hour of
photo editing services in almost every package. You
should consider ordering more if most of your
photos are very old or very worn. Click
Here to see examples.
are creative slideshow services?
A. Creative slide show services are just that - very
creative! They are uniquely created for each person's
slideshows to match the personality and setting
of the theme. We include high quality graphics,
different scenery, various backgrounds and more
to create a slideshow that is extremely enjoyable
and exciting to watch. This of course, is much
more time consuming than the average slideshows.
Here at Sands of Time Multimedia Creations we
enjoy the challenge involved in creating these
slideshows as we take your slideshow to the ultimate
level of creativity. Please see our samples.
my printer to print photos that are on my computer?
but we do not recommend this. It has been our experience
that photos printed from personal computers do
not print at a good enough quality and the photo
paper used is normally not a high enough quality
paper. Therefore, when the personally printed photo
is re-scanned, it makes a visibly poor quality
photo. We recommend that you simply place your
photos that are on your computer onto a CD, and
send us the CD. It's cheaper for you, takes much
less time than printing out the photos, and you'll
have much better results for your slideshow.
long is a video clip?
video clip can be anywhere from 5 seconds to 3
minutes in length.
I view my slideshow in advance?
A. Absolutely. If you have a high
speed internet connection, you can view your video
online. This way you can request any changes you
desire to be made before the final production
phase of placing your slideshow production on
DVD or VHS. This ensures that you are 100% satisfied.
you guarantee my slideshow to be a certain length?
vs. Quality: At Sands of Time Multimedia Creations,
we do not believe that basing our shows on
length is the best method to create a professional
slideshow production. For example, if we promise
you a 20 minute slideshow, we can give you
a 20 minute slideshow. That's easy. We can
make twenty photos last for 20 minutes if
we want to. We can also take 300 photos and
make the show 20 minutes long. But think about
the quality production you would receive.
The show would either be way too slow and
bore your viewers to tears, or it would be
so rushed through that it would lose all emotion
and effect.This is why we do not base our
shows or our prices on the length of the video
production. Each show is uniquely made and
created with each individual's needs and desires.
if my time length to show the video is constrained?
A. If you have a limited time for
your slideshow to be viewed, we will absolutely
work with you to meet that timing deadline. Sometimes
you may need to leave out some photos, or sometimes
you may need to add. Either way, our consultants
work closely with you to make sure all your needs
program do you use to create your creative slideshows?
anyone can purchase just one program and create
an ordinary slideshow. However, we do not use just
one program to create our slideshows. We have invested
thousands of dollars in multiple software programs
and equipment that we use in combination to create
our templates and our slideshows. This is why our
slideshows are so unique - not your cookie-cutter
I add video or verbal messages on the slide show
just send us your messages and we will be
happy to include them in your slideshow video
album presentation. For best quality please
place it on a DVD/VHS or any computer file
type. Please do not send 8mm's.
about copyrighted music?
A. Since almost all music has a copyright, you must
supply us the original CD or we can purchase
a copy from a legitimate vendor for you such
as I-Tunes or Rhapsody for as little as $.99
- $1.29 per song. You must
agree also, that you will not copy the DVD,
and that the viewing of this is for personal
use and not for resale, to be enjoyed with
your family and friends at no charge. We
also have royalty-free music on stock at
no extra charge that we can use.

pan & zoom effects, and fade-in, fade-out
transitions. Not recommended for slideshows with
over 85 photos.
The Traditional-Plus slideshows
are beautiful and elegant with various transitions, pan & zoom
effects, various backgrounds

from the beginning to the end. As one person stated, "Your
creative slideshows are like an amusement
park for the eyes!" The creative
slideshows will end up being a little longer
because of all the added graphics. Creative style
slideshows work with any amount of photos and are highly recommended when you have over 175 photos.
