Securely share your cine films and photos with your family and friends, anywhere in the world with my cloud
my cloud is a special service from Timeless Moments for all our customers if requested. Your footage and photos are uploaded to our partner Google Drive’s cloud service. For the next six months your files will be available absolutely free of charge for viewing or download. There are no extra charges for larger files and no limitations on file sizes, film length or number of photos (currently not available for tape transfers). Make sure you select the cloud service on your order form!
File formats are MP4 or MPEG2 in standard definition or high definition depending on how your films were scanned. For photographs such as 35mm slides the file format is jpg (please note the preview may be in a lower resolution but the downloaded file is original size).
(Files saved to external storage for editing remain AVI and TIFF respectively).
Available before you receive your DVDs
Your footage will be saved to the cloud shortly after scanning and before dispatch of the finished project. At that time you will receive an email from your editor with a link to your personal folder in our Google Drive. This folder contains all your material and can only be accessed by you or anyone you wish to share the link with.
Preview, download and backup
With this service you can preview or download all your files in a couple of clicks to your home PC or MAC. Once stored on your computer you can copy the data to a storage device for long term backup, or upload them to your own cloud account. We recommend Google with it’s generous 15Gb free storage. Also worth considering is the excellent Dropbox which allows 5Gb of free storage.
Google Account not required
You do not need to have a Google account to access your folder, however if you do you will have more options such as sharing, editing and more. Google accounts are free of charge to setup.
