    <a href="my image"><img src="mylittle image" /></a> But i want to use flash files intead of jpegs. anyone got any idea how I might do this.


    Why dont use free flash gallerys :)?


    Flash can get indexed and javascript doesnt :)

    Eehm… you were talking about an image and a thumbnail and now you are talking about indexing in search engines… :roll:

    its related :roll:


    My question is what style of Flash….static or moving?

    If you want an image to move why not just use a .gif, instead of a .fla

    Anyways as far as i understand your question are you looking for a way to have a .fla play when a user mouses over a thumbnail or for the .fla to play like a lightbox?


    yes it can be done, higher skill level than me though i’m afraid.

    basically you have two scenes (1 is the thumbnail, 2 is the ‘lightbox’ element) Then pretty much its a case of sync-ing the timelines.

    If you give me a couple of days i can do a very very basic demo.

    I personally think the best thing to do would be to add js (no right click) and set the permissions of the image folder to read only. That way people shouldn’t be able to view the individual images therefore eliminating their ability to ‘borrow’ your images
