  • Choose Quality Photographs:

    Select pictures which have good quality like framing, correct lighting and developing. If you want to include old and poorly developed photographs then first get it digitally enhanced.

  • Select Variety of Photographs:

    Select photographs which could keep your guest interested. Instead of including 10 pictures of a person it is better to keep 3-4 interesting pictures of him.

    You can even add video-clips of about 10-15 seconds in between the slide-show. This would be helpful in enhancing the interest of your guests.

  • Give Transition Effect to the Slide-show:

    While switching from one picture to another instead of making it simple you can add some transition effect like image peel, fade in/out etc. But remember that you keep it same for all the pictures.

  • Check Before:

    Wedding is big event of your life so one day before the big day; check all the equipments and your slide-show. Its better that you keep an extra copy of your slide-show. Check that everything projector, DVD player, laptop and sound system are working properly.
