Flash MX Help with load_images.fla

I've got a Flash slide show project that I'm working on that I'm having problems with.  I have Flash MX and used the load_images.fla file that came with the program to start out.  Thing is I've finally gotten my images to show up but they're much bigger than the box I had them assigned to! And I still have to get the text to change for each image and the back button doesn't work.

Any ideas would be great at this point I'm pulling out my hair trying to get this done for Monday.

if the image loaded in is too big, u can simply change the mask or movie to compensate for the size ...
for the back button and text ... i am not sure, i don't have that slide show fla ... where is it??

if u have ur fla and some sample images online, u can post the link that will help us solve the problem for u ...
otherwise post ur code will also help

The images are cut to exactly the size of the mask.

The load_images.fla is in the Examples or Tutorial folder in Flash MX

Here is what I am working on.

at a glance there is a few things u did wrong

1) the image files must be JPG
2) from the script u wrote, the names are in sequence image1.jpg, image2.jpg etc ...

for what u are trying to do it is not too hard.
ur code looks pretty ok, and the way u organise ur movie is nice :)

but i think that's some logic error too with the next button, ... fix ur images and i will have a look for u later ... need to get some sleep now ...

ok - I had the wrong images in there!


the back button isn't working either... I need some pain killers. I'll check back in a bit.  Thanks
