- [Narrator] We're going to go ahead and start building…out a basic web carousel that pulls in JSON data…to display images and associated data.…To begin, let's set up our project.…So this project I have here is actually the same one…that we used in a previous chapter.…If we go into Publish settings, and Advanced,…we can see that we our using our jQuery template.…But I want to change the width, the height,…the background color, and things of that nature.…So to do that, with the document selected,…I'm going to go ahead and type in 700 for width,…and 250 for height.…
I'll also choose a different color for my stage.…Maybe this gray color here.…Now I'll go ahead and use the button up top…to center my stage.…From here, there are just a number of additional…layers I want to create.…So I'll use the New Layer button.…To make sure I have four layers.…And then I can name them.…So the first one will be my actions layer,…where all my code is going to exist.…I'll lock that down, since we don't want any content…on our actions layer.…
