How many slides can I upload to SlideSource at one time?
You will find that the process of uploading, splitting files into individual slides and creating thumbnails of each slide is fast. While there is no technical limit to the number of slides that can be included in a single upload, we recommend uploading in smaller batches of 50 to 100 slides. This makes the process of organizing your slides more efficient. We have tested SlideSource.com with uploads in batches of more than 500 slides without any problems, but don’t consider this to be best practice.
