Creating a New Project

Creating a new project in Soundslides sounds easy enough, but it is important to know how Soundslides saves your files.

When you first launch Soundslides you will be given this window:

Create new project in Soundslides

When you select "NEW" you will first be asked to save your project.

Save soundslides dialogue

Soundslides creates projects as a project folder filled with a series of files. It will hold all of your images, sound, data and eventually your published project.

If you move to another computer, or wish to send your project to someone else, you must send them the entire folder.

One thing to note is that Soundslides never manipulates your original photos or audio. When you import your files, Soundslides automatically creates duplicates and saves them into this project folder.
