Flash Image Photo Preview Scroll Bar

Posted on 2007-07-22

I am looking for a tutorial and template or some guidance on how to make a simple horizontal thumbnail picture preview with the option to scroll left and right.

Basically, I have about 40 photos which I would like to have within a scroll bar that is 600x100 pixels - each photo thumbnail is 100x100 pixels - so a user can see about 5 photos at a time (with a few pixels between each - and left and right buttons at either end.

When a user clicks on one of the thumbnails I would like it to open to full size within the web page with a "close" button at the top.

Can anyone advise on how I can achieve this?

    This tutorial sounds similar to what you're asking for:

    Note that you might have to go through the earlier tutorial before this one, which grabs the images using an XML file.  It's a good approach that allows updates to be performed simply by editing the XML file, instead of having to manually load images into Flash and export them each time...
