in terms of fading, its a simple change of the image alpha setting - there's 2 ways to accomplish this, either with a tween, or using actionscript, then here's a tutorial for some bluring effects.

but with that tutorial - zoom -blu-michael, you need software like photoshop to blur the image first, so your image is normal and then tweening it, into the same blured image.

I've seen that tutorial, but was hoping for an actionscript function that would do this without having to blur the image in photoshop first.

I'm using MX 2004 pro.

You can do it with flash but it's very CPU intensive and messy, which is why people use a blurred version of an image and change the alpha.

The non-image way is to duplicate a MC, change the alpha and x/y position by 1 pixel, and do this about 10 times - slightly shifted each time.  The alpha/image way of doing it is much smoother looking and less coding.

I've created navigation using the blurred image method before and it's really not that bad once you have all the images cut up.
