In this article, we will go over how to create a new project in Fundy Software's Social Design App.
Once logged in, or an account is created, there will be a prompt to choose a design. You’ll either select a previous project you’ve already created, or you can create a new one.
To create a new project, click Browse Photos to add images.
There is a max of 20 images that can be uploaded at project creation on web (30 on the app). If more are selected, only the first 20 will be uploaded. An additional 10 images may be added after project creation.
Once images have been loaded, the Projects Details page will load
1. Project Name: Enter your project name. This is required
2 and 3. Panel 1 and Panel 2 Text: Stories and Carousels will have 5 design areas. The Panel 1 text will show on the first and Panel 2 text will show on the third. This text will only appear if a template is selected that has placeholder text
4. End Panel text: Enter your End Panel text if desired. This text will only appear if a template is selected that has placeholder text
5. Photographer Logo: Upload logos here. Single click on the one you want to select for use in the project. The selected logo will appear on templates with a logo placeholder
After project details have been entered, scroll to the bottom and click Next
You’ll then be prompted to select a slideshow reel. There is an option to “Skip” near the top right if needed
After slideshow reel, there's an option to select a story template. Again, there is an option to “Skip” near the top right
After a story template has been selected (or skipped), the option to choose a carousel template will be next

Once templates have been selected, single click the design to begin editing. You may get a message about the images being uploaded. Click "OK" to continue
