Why Transfer With Us

Your videotapes, movie film reels, photos, slides, and negatives deteriorate over time as does the equipment for playing analog media. Walmart Photo’s Home Movie and Photo Transfer Service converts aging media formats to digital files that you can store and back up on Google Photos and your hard drive. DVDs are organized into menus and chapters that make it easy to find your favorite moments.

Walmart is providing this service to make digitizing memories that were captured on older media formats convenient for you, especially if you don’t have the technical expertise, equipment, or time to transfer your own media to the latest formats.

Walmart has partnered with YesVideo whose technology creates chaptered DVDs with "Hollywood-style" features such as background music* and three one-minute music video highlights that are automatically created from scenes of your transferred footage. You can also save your transfer order to Google Photos, where you can download, share, and store your old memories with your new ones. Walmart’s goal is to make it easy for you to preserve and relive your favorite moments.
