• For best results, shoot your photos as horizontals, not verticals.
• You can definitely use your smartphone to shoot your photos. Really.
• You can do a slideshow in Soundslides without audio.
• The length of an audio slideshow is the length of your audio track.
• The audio track you will use in the Soundslides project is a single audio track.
