Transcript

In this add-on, you will save and upload the backdrops from your projects from previous days.

To start, click the "My Stuff" folder in the upper right-hand corner of the Scratch tab.

Open a project that you want to include in your Time Lapse project.

Right-click the stage, and click "save picture of stage."

This saves an image of everything on the stage, including the backdrop and the sprites.

Repeat this process for each of the projects you want to include in your Time Lapse project.

Then, open the Time Lapse project.

Click "upload backdrop from file," and add one of the stage images that you downloaded.

Repeat this process for each of the stage images.

To delete the backdrops from the starter project that you replaced with your own stage images, select the stage, and click the backdrops tab.

Right-click each of the starter project backdrops, and click delete.

If you accidentally delete a backdrop that you meant to keep, click edit, and select "undelete."

Finally, program the project to switch to the new backdrops.

Click the scripts tab, and select the new backdrops from the dropdown menus of the "switch backdrop and wait" blocks.

Now it's your turn.

Save a picture of the stage for each project you will include in your Time Lapse project.

Then, upload these stage images.

Finally, program the project to switch to the new backdrops.
