# Getting started

# Quick start

Assuming you have some images (.jpg, .png) and a supported audio file (.mp3, .m4a, .wav, .aiff, .ogg, .aac), here are the basic steps of producing a slide show in Soundslides 3.

# 1. Create a new show

From your account's show list, click Create new show +.

Create a new show

# 2. Import your images and audio

Create a new show

Click Image images to select your image files.

Click "Import audio" to select your audio file (or use one of the tracks from our Music Library)

# 3. Edit your show using one of two timing methods

By default, your show opens with auto-spaced timings. You can adjust the "secs per image" by using the slider in the upper right of your edit area.


To switch to precise timing's timeline interface, click "Open in Timeline Editor". If you've used Soundslides in the past, you will be familiar with the Timeline Editor.



For more information on the two timing methods, see the main editing documentation.

# 4. Change your privacy settings

After editing, change your privacy settings by clicking the Edit button adjacent to "This show is private".

Select "Anyone can view this show" from the dropdown menu.


Your show is not viewable to the public online. Click the "Share" button and select "Copy link" to copy the show's URL to your clipboard.


# Next steps

Explore the editing options in the Timeline Editor, and Overlay pane.
