I'm looking for a slideshow script that uses various types of transitions between pics. I've found ones that fade between pics, drop each pic down, load from the left, load from the right, but none that use more than one effect. Doesn't anyone have a script that uses all of these transition forms? Am I asking too much? Oh, yea, it needs to work in mozilla, firefox and ie.

Thanks guys.

I checked them both out and decided to go with the One Stop Slide Show. It took some doing to get it up and running, but now it works ... sort of. When it starts (Netscape or Firefox) it displays the first 2 pics one above the other. In IE, it displays all of the pics (one below the other) until it corrects itself.

Also, while it works perfectly in Netscape and Firefox, in IE and Safari, the transitions are sluggish until it gets almost all through the picture set (about 30), then it works fine.

I sent an email to the address on the website asking for some guidance, but so far no response.

Is anyone familiar with this utility that maybe could give me some assistance?

Thanks,
Jim W.

Just thought I'd post a follow-up. I tried both of the One Stop and Nivo slideshows, but had problems with both. I posted questions on both boards. It has now been a week, and I've had no response from either. Apparently, support is not high on either developer's list. I've decided to go with my old standby, the Fade-in slideshow. It's not as sophisticated, but it works.
