Formerly known as the Analog Cucumber, Digital Pickle specializes in transforming predigital memories into high-def formats that are compatible with modern media. Digital Pickle's VHS-to-DVD video-transfer services save old home videos before their aging ribbons begin to disintegrate or reveal that Ringo Starr is dead when played backward (prices start at $20 to create a DVD of up to two hours). Using state-of-the-art equipment, Digital Pickle's skilled technicians will synchronize frames, stabilize images, and reduce white noise in the original video, returning it to you in its completed form for enhanced reminiscing. In addition to video preservation and conversion, Digital Pickle also provides photo-digitalization (starting at $0.39/photo) and audio-transfer services (starting at $25/tape), which relocate yesteryear's portraits and ballads into modern-day PCs.

Those sessions result in slideshows, prints, and a DVD with more than 80 images of the soon-to-be newlyweds.
