Create a before and after slide

Create a before and after slide while you’re building a loop, presentation, collection or bumper.

To get the best results, use these specs:

  • Image format of jpg or png
  • At least 580 pixels wide by 536 pixels high
  • Our online image editor will help you size and crop.

From the loop, presentation, collection or bumpers builder

  1. Click the blue “Add Slides +” button. Select “Create Slide” from the drop-down menu to make a new slide.

  2. This opens the slide templates library. There are many types of slides you can make. Select “Before and After.”

  3. Give your slide a title. This title will be seen in the ViewMedica menu system. Use a descriptive name so you and your patients can easily find it in your On-Demand menu.

  4. Set the runtime for your slide. The default time is 10 seconds, but you may find some slides need more or less time.

  5. Add an image. Use one of these methods to add your before and after images:
    Drag and drop
    Just grab the image from your computer desktop and drag it onto one of the the dotted line areas in this window.
    Or find on computer
    Click the “Add an Image” button. This will bring up the “My Media” window. Either drag the image from your computer desktop and onto this window. Or, hit the “+ Add New Media” button to bring up your computer’s file structure. Navigate to your image file, select it and click “Upload.”

  6. Your image will upload and a cropping box will be displayed to show the proper dimensions. Use the “Zoom” buttons or your mouse’s scroll wheel to change the size of the uploaded image. Drag the crop box to move it or click and drag the blue handles to resize the crop. When you are finished editing, click the “Crop Image” button. Like the crop? Then click “Confirm.” Need to tweak the crop before saving? Click the “Change Crop” button and start again.

  7. After you upload both images for this slide, edit the text at the bottom of the slide. You can set many formatting options for this text.

    • Bold, italics, and underline
    • Text size
    • Set as a list, numbered list, or quote
    • Align text to the left, center, right, top, middle, or bottom of the slide area
    • Set as a clickable link in On-Demand
    • Text color
    • Background color
Note

The "Hyperlink" field is clickable in On-Demand. They take up the whole slide. Any inline links become unclickable. Hyperlinks show up as scannable QR codes in VMcast.

  1. Click the blue “Save” button. Now you will see the slide in your list.
