First steps with AquaSoft SlideShow

Add photos

With just a few clicks you can create your first slide show. Click the large plus icon on the toolbar and select your images and videos. You can repeat this any time you want to add more images.

Alternatively, you can drag an image object from the Toolbox directly to the Timeline.

Images in the Timeline can be moved around by dragging and dropping them with the mouse.

Hint: Use the Storyboard with its clear overview if you want to sort your images.

Additional information for adding photos are available in the online help in chapter "Adding images".

Adding captions to images

Captions can be easily added to one or more images. Select the image in the Timeline and click at the "Text" tab in the "Object settings" window. Now you can enter your image caption, change the font style, color and select effects and animations.

To position a text you simply move it with the mouse within the Layoutdesigner.

More information for adding and formatting image captions are available in the manual in chapter "Adding captions to images".

Adding sound

Click the note icon to open the background music list. Then click the plus icon to select music files. You can change the order in the list by using drag&drop.

For an exact adjustment of the music songs will be displayed as a wave in the bottom track of the Timeline. Here they can be moved, shortened, overlapped, and you can adjust the volume by using the volume rubberband.

Note: Sounds are not background music. You can drag them from the Toolbox directly to the Timeline or assign them directly to an image. There are no limitations to the number of sounds that can be played simultaneously.

If you like to learn more about background music in SlideShow 9 you should look at the "Background music" chapter in the online help.

Multiple tracks and animations

For all those who want more AquaSoft SlideShow provides versatile animation and design options. SlideShow offers an unlimited number of image and sound tracks. The tracks aren't visible right away, though, but become available by adding chapters. Drag a chapter from the Toolbox to the Timeline and add images or other objects from the Toolbox to the chapter. In its expanded state you can also see the area to create new tracks. Chapters can also be nested.

Additional information for using the chapter element can be found in the online help at "Working with multiple tracks".
