Script: Flexi slideshow

This script is almost exactly what I am looking for. The ability to allow differing image sizes is essential. However, I would like to be able to make the transitions from image to image blend instead of abruptly changing. The effect I am looking for is that of "Fade-in slideshow" http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex14/fadeinslideshow.htm but having reviewed the code for both I don't see how to integrate the one into the other. The Flexi slideshow transists by layers and Fade-in uses the typical method. Can anyone help me?

The easiest way may be to simply use the DHTML Billboard script instead: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex2/dhtmlbillboard.htm It supports rich rotating of rich HTML, and transition effects are added in. For the line:

//var billboardeffects=["Iris"]

Uncomment that inside the script, and try changing it to:

//var billboardeffects=["GradientWipe(GradientSize=1.0 Duration=0.7)"]

That creates a form of blend in effect.

Also FYI, the Fade In scriptshow script was just updated last week to better accomodate images of varying sizes: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1157
