    Default Sliding image mask...

    Is there a non-flash script/coding for this:

    If not, can it be accomplished without the oh-so-pricey Flash MX software?

    Thanks for your time!

    You can probably accomplish this with Javascript. It won't be exact, of course and could be tedious coding, but it would be free.

    Alternately, no.
    However, how many instances of this were you looking for? Do you have the images already?

    If so zip them up and attach them and I will see what I can do for you

    I made the first one. (didn't see the second set of pics before I was done).

    I have added the HTML, .swf and .fla (Flash version 8) in a zip file you can download here

    Let me know if this is what you are after. If it is, gather all the photos you want done this way and post them all at once, I will then make a separate swf for each.

    Once done I will show you how to embed them properly on your page(s).

    That would be a negative. But you can download the 30day trial at adobe.com.

    Note that you will be downloading version 9 (CS3) of Flash. This is the latest and greatest. I made this in version 8, but CS3 will have no problems opening the files or executing them for you.

    You might be wondering what you're going to do after the 30 day trial. The solution is XML. With XML, all you need is a text editor and ftp access to your server.

    If you can run PHP on your server, you don't even need the text editor.

    The process is this:

    1. Create a flash file which will read XML data and automatically update the slideshow when you add more images

    2. Upload an image to your server.

    3. Update the XML to show that a new image is available.


    XML is a VERY easy way to maintain flash. A sample XML file for the type of application you're looking for might look like this:

    Code:
    <slideshow>
       <image src="path/to/image1" />
       <image src="path/to/image2" />
       <image src="path/to/image3" />
    </slideshow>
    As you can see, very intuitive and self-explantory.

    If you have PHP available, you can run a PHP script that would automatically create the XML based on whatever files were in a specific diretory. So, all you would need to is upload an image to your server.

    If you want to go that route and want me to create a flash for you, post back here (and also send me a PM, I'm kind of busy these days and haven't been on the forums much so I might miss your response).

    Medyman,

    Bingo, you hit the nail on the head I haven't responded back here 'cause I didn't know what I'd do after Flash 30-day expired so I wasn't going to go this route...but I will take you up on your offer to help me out so I can edit myself without Flash.

    I'll PM you with a link to the pics that I'd like to use.

    Thank you.
