Some people have mentioned wanting to have an easy-to-embed photo gallery for their pages, so I started working on something in flash.
I know that there are some pretty high-end solutions out there for reasonable prices (including the excellent Slide Show Pro
, which may work well for people looking for a more robust solution), but I wanted to build something that would fit into both our templates and image box styles.
At any rate, I have a rough version going at
and would be interested collaborating with someone (or multiple people) to get it working a bit smoother before it gets distributed more widely.
Right now, it's a swf that displays and transitions photos and text from an XML file, so it can be edited externally pretty easily without re-exporting a flash file. Ideally, we'd build 3 or 4 sizes and then distribute the SWF files along with documentation to people who wanted to use it.
If anyone who knows Actionscript wants to take a crack at working on it, just let me know and I'll forward along the FLA file.
