Flash Fade Image with setInterval

Having difficulty fading image.  setInterval does not appear to be working.  The fade stops at 75.

images = new Array();
path = "http://www.bristolhillsoutfitters.com/pics/";
for (i=0; i<4; i++) {
 images[i] = path+"deer"+i+".jpg";

function fadeImage() {
 if (_root.imageHolder_mc._alpha>10) {
  _root.imageHolder_mc._alpha -= 25;
function imageLoader() {
 imageNo = random(3);
 _root.createEmptyMovieClip("imageHolder_mc", 200);
 setInterval(fadeImage(), 5000);

Hi splendorx,

Use it like this:
setInterval(fadeImage, 5000); // without brackets

And 5 seconds is too much for smooth fade, try something smaller, like 500.
