Sound Slide Tutorial

  1. 1. SOUND SLIDE TUTORIAL<br />Step 1:<br />Open SoundSlides (click the Start > Programs > Specialized Software ><br />SoundSlides).<br />Your screen should look something like this: <br />Click the “New” button and give your project a name:<br />Give your project a name and save it in your Local Workspace folder or<br />desktop.<br />Step 2:<br />You’ll then be brought to this screen:<br />Here’s where you’ll be instructed to import two things:<br />1) Your photos – JPG button<br />2) Your audio – SND button<br />Click the JPG button and browse to the folder where your photos are<br />stored in the Local Workspace folder.<br />The program will then import your photos.<br />When it’s done importing the JPG<br />button will have a green<br />checkmark on it.<br />Next, click the Sound button to import your audio. Browse to your file<br />in the Cleveland Exercise folder and choose “audio.mp3.”<br />SoundSlides will then import your audio and open your slideshow.<br />Your screen will look something like this:<br />You’ll see your pictures as thumbnails on the right. The selected photo<br />will appear enlarged on the left. You can drag and drop the thumbnails<br />on the right to reorder your photos.<br />To add additional photos to your slideshow you would hit “ADD IMAGE.”<br />To remove photos, drag the thumbnail to the “OUT” folder.<br />Note the timeline at the bottom of the screen. We’ll make some<br />changes to it later.<br />There are also buttons that allow you to Play, Test and Export your<br />slideshow, as well as a menu and tabs at the top of the screen for<br />changing various settings.<br />Step 3<br />At this point, you have more photos than you need for your slideshow.<br />Scroll through them and decide which you will keep and which you will<br />discard. Your goal is to CREATE A STORY, with a beginning, middle and<br />end.<br />To remove photos, drag the thumbnail to the “Out” folder. Edit your<br />photos down to a maximum of 10.<br />Tip:<br />To read the captions on each photo, click the “SLIDE INFO” tab:<br />Step 4:<br />Once you have selected your 10 photos, you need to clean up the<br />captions. They’ve come in “raw” from the wires and are much too long<br />to be used in your slideshow. Edit them down to a sentence or two.<br />Select a “look and feel for your slideshow using the settings under the<br />“Template” tab. Note that you can change the colors of your show, set<br />it to play or show captions automatically, select different fonts, etc.<br />You can also change the transitions between the slides, so for instance<br />you can have one picture fade out as another fades in:<br />Once you’re happy with your “look and feel” (tip: click the Test or play<br />button on your timeline to preview), click “Project Info” to put a<br />headline and a credit on your slideshow:<br />Check your timing.<br />Look at your timeline. The length of your slideshow is ALWAYS<br />determined by the length of our audio track, in this case 1 minute.<br />If you want some pictures to appear on the screen longer, mouse to<br />the right edge of the photo in the timeline and drag it to the right to<br />play longer, or the left to play for a shorter time.<br />Step 7: Exporting Your Slideshow<br />When you’re done tweaking your slideshow you’ll have to save it in a<br />format that you can use on a web site. To do that, click the “Export”<br />button.<br />The program will then save a copy of your slideshow in the folder that<br />you specified when you first started the program.<br />Note: Your files will be stored in a folder called “Publish to<br />Web.”<br />To use the slideshow in a web site, you’ll need to move a copy of the<br />Publish to Web folder into the same folder as your web site. Be sure to<br />copy over the ENTIRE folder.<br />
