    By the way, I have latest Flash at my desktop at work. I'm newbie with Flash
    so if there are some templates or plugins to Flash that would work as
    gallery constructor.

    Take a look at: http://www.swishzone.com/index.php?area=products&product=pix

    I've used the plain-jane Swish for animated titles in Flash for years, and it
    works very well. Have not tried this program, but on their past track record,
    I'd say that it will do all that they advertise.

  5. For the love of God... WHY??? I have two "affectionate nicknames"
    for that garbage. The one that's repeatable in mixed company is
    "Schlockwave-Trash". I have ripped out the plug-in from my computer's
    plugin directory. I find that doing so "greatly improves my browsing
    experience". Some people may miss animated ads jumping up and down all
    over the page as they're trying to read an article, but I don't.

    I'm sure that your response will be something along the lines of the
    web-developers I've argued with. Their re-action is... but *MY* site
    has "a tasteful flash intro". My reaction is that while this may be
    true for *THEIR* web site, the other 99% of web sites that "use" it
    actually abuse it.

    A bit of web-browser history...

    1) At first, only porn sites used tracking cookies. Most people don't
    frequent porn sites, so they weren't concerned.

    2) Then mainstream web sites started using it. People were concerned
    and used heavy-handed methods to block cookies.

    3) But a few websites actually needed cookies for legitimate purposes,
    so a bunch of "cookie-management add-ons and utilities" were written to
    allow people to *SELECTIVELY* block/allow cookies on a site-by-site
    basis.

    4) This ended up being used so much that cookie-management was
    eventually integrated into browsers.


    1) At first, only porn sites used popups. Most people don't frequent
    porn sites, so they weren't concerned.

    2) Then mainstream web sites started using it. People were extremely
    annoyed and used heavy-handed methods to block popups.

    3) But a few websites actually needed popups for legitimate purposes,
    so a bunch of "popup-management add-ons and utilities" were written to
    allow people to *SELECTIVELY* block/allow popups on a site-by-site basis.

    4) This ended up being used so much that popup management was
    eventually integrated into browsers.


    1) At first, only porn sites used garish, in-your-face, flash ads.
    Most people don't frequent porn sites, so they weren't concerned.

    2) Then mainstream web sites started using it. People were extremely
    annoyed and used heavy-handed methods to block flash.

    3) But a few websites actually needed flash for legitimate purposes,
    so we're now seeing "flash-management add-ons and utilities" being
    written to allow people to *SELECTIVELY* block/allow Schlockwave-Trash
    on a site-by-site basis.

    4) I don't see flash-blocking in mainstream browsers... yet.


    Do you notice a pattern here? The questions you have ask yourself
    are...
    1) Is flash *REALLY* necessary for what you want to do?
    2) Is your website so important that people will put with a lot of
    singing/dancing garbage at a bunch of other web sites in order to view
    your website?

    Anybody have a webcam or microphone attached to their computer?
    Right-click on any flash presentation on a website and select
    "properties". Tell me what you see.
