1) Script Title: :: Featured Content Slider v2.5

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/featuredcontentslider.htm

3) Describe problem: When viewing the demo, there is an image jumping that is distracting. Is this intended?

Can code be altered to make a fading in be done over the last image fading out?

Or, is there a slider on the DD site that I missed that does fade in/out?

ON ANOTHER NOTE: Thank you to Jschever1 for the last help he gave me on a mouse-over effect - it works great now. I tried to thank, but got a message that my message was too short. How does one thank a helper?

The jumping if I understood your description correctly is probably due to the images inside the slideshow not having been preloaded. In general you can use JavaScript to preload images in the HEAD section of your page with a code like the below:


<script>
var preloadimages = ["1.gif", "2.gif", "3.gif", "etc.gif"], preloaded = []
for (var i=0; i<preloadimages.length; i++){
preloaded = new Image()
preloaded.src = preloadimages[i]
}
</script>

As far as modifying the fade effect so it's both a fade out and fade in, it may be possible, but basically you're probably better off looking for another script that does that by default, since the modifications required on this deep would be quite involving.
