Suggestions on preparing material for videos:
Put photos (slides) in some type of order to tell a story Organize the pictures you want to use in the order you want them to appear. You may want to use some sort of order to tell a story (Chronological order is the most common). Then, number them on the back either with a pencil, quick drying pen or a post-it type note you can write the number on. Don't use a regular ink pen because the ink can transfer to the other photos. Try to choose pictures that are horizontal (wider than they are tall) because they more closely fit your television screen. It's good idea to include several "action" photos, that show the subject doing something, to make the video more interesting.
Personal items may be included (i.e.: baby booties, favorite toys, invitations, etc.)
or you can also use announcements, newspaper clippings, old home
movie clips, video clips, biographical information, and other memorabilia.
You may want to consider dividing the video into segments or "chapters", (i.e.:
childhood, courtship, marriage, raising their own family, their children's families, etc.)
Each segment can have its own song, or portion of a song, if there
are enough photos.
