Soundslides: Tom Priddy's tutorial (PDF, 1.2 MB) shows how a professional photojournalist works with Soundslides in his everyday job (used with Tom's permission).

* The templates must be opened and edited in Photoshop, and then SAVE FOR WEB in the JPG file format. Why? Soundslides can import JPGs, but no other image formats. You will write your own title and subtitle, of course. You will also rewrite the credits accurately.
