I need to change the way our flash portfolio is setup. This portfolio is simply a slide show of images. Currently we have the images actually embedded in the .swf file, this is a problem for us because if we continue to add items the file size will increase, affecting the loading time of the site. We would like to set up our portfolio so that it loads the images only when viewed, in other words the portfolio images will not be part of the flash file.
We are looking for something similar to this: [url removed, login to view]
This setup is created using actionscript and loads the images (that are separate jpg files) using xml. This also allows for easy updates to the portfolio.
Also we would like to display thumbnail previews of the images instead of the numbered buttons.
