Projector is a creative platform built for everyone, whether you have serious design skills or not. It helps people and teams with all their visual communication needs, from presentations and print materials to videos, GIFs, and social media. In this article, we'll show you around before you get started.

Projector glossary

  • Story: Your creations. Whether for a social media post, a presentation, an email campaign, or an infographic, we call each creation a Story. Your collection of stories lives in your Library.

  • Scene: A story is made up of scenes, and you can add as many scenes (or just one) to help shape your narrative.

  • Library: This is where you’ll find all of the stories you’ve created and the ones that have been shared with you. You can search and sort your Library to surface the stories you're looking for.

  • Template library: Check out the templates to get started with some themes and inspiration! Browse from a variety of templates for presentations, social media posts, content planning, storytelling, and more.

  • Editor: This is your workspace! Start a new story, join a shared one, or start working from a template.

Getting to know the Editor

Our toolbars are designed to bring relevant editing features to the front and make more advanced design effects accessible and easy to use.
