To change the screen ratio, go to Project | Project Options | Screen tab and change the Aspect ratio of a slide parameter.

dayof-pic01 and dayof-pic99 have to be square formats.
dayof-pic02 has to have a landscape format.
Open dayof-pic01 with your photo editor, apply a strong gaussian blur and save the result as dayof-pic01blur.
All your pictures have to have .jpg extension
Copy (replace) all those pictures in the folder where you unzipped the archive.
Open the template (TheDom-DayOf-TPL.pte).
Modify the texts/symbols displayed in the slideshows :
Select successively slides #2.INTRODUCTION, #4.CHAPTER and #6.FINAL and go in the Objects and Animation window.
Look for the name of the object in caps and in square brackets : [COMMENT], [WEATHER], [TEMPERATURE], [DAY], [PREV DAY], [MONTH], [YEAR], [TITLE], [DATE / TITLE]
For each of these objects, select it on the object list, click on the keypoint of the object in the timeline and modify the text in the Properties tab.
About the object [CLOCK COLOR] (in slide #2 and #6), it's not a text object. It's a rectangle and you can change its color in the same tab to fit your need.
About the object [PAN CIRCLE] (in slide #4), it's the circle that turns on the map to indicate the position. Select this object, click on the keypoint of the object in the timeline with your mouse and still with your mouse, move it to wherever you need.
Before doing this, click on the Tools button and be sure the option "Ignore objects not selected" is ticked.
