Pro Media is an exclusive collection of more than 10,000 still and motion backgrounds available for use in Proclaim. If you're a Pro Media subscriber, you have unlimited access to additional resources on SoundFaith.com, such as Photoshop documents. And if you haven't already switched from PowerPoint to Proclaim, you can download the images as PowerPoint templates. These templates can later be uploaded into Proclaim.
In addition to being able to add media directly through Proclaim to a presentation without importing it, you can also use the same media outside the app. Edit in Photoshop, or export your media to include in your weekly bulletin, newsletter, or to share on social media. To get started, follow the steps below.
Explore your Pro Media subscription on SoundFaith
Once you've purchased Pro Media, navigate to SoundFaith.com in your browser and sign in with the same credentials you use in Proclaim. Select the Media tab to view all the Pro Media series to which you and your group have access.
Choose filters to view your media by popularity (the most recently used series in the last week), recency (most recently released Pro Media series), or other facets. If you already know the Pro Media series you want to use outside of Proclaim, search for it in the bar at the top of your browser.
Once you've found the series in which you're interested, click Download to download the media in whichever format you need. Photoshop documents (PSD's) as well as PowerPoint templates (.ppt, .pptx) are options available outside the Proclaim app which can be used in other applications.
Remember: all of the media you see here is already available in Proclaim into the Media Browser. You'll never have to import any Pro Media in the Media Browser.
