Hi,

In order to help i need a little more information.  where does the picture slide show start as gotoAndPlay(1) will got back to frame 1 of the movie.  Have your keyframed the picture show or is it a nested movieclip? If you can provide your fla it would make it easier to determine what is happening.

If I understand you correctly, here's what I use.  In the second to last frame of your slide show movie clip, drop in:

var noOfLoops = 3;  // change '3' to the number of loops you want

if (loop == undefined) {
    loop = 1;
} else {
    loop++;
    if (loop == noOfLoops) {
        stop();
    }
}

In the last frame, drop in:

this.gotoAndPlay(1);

Oh, and take out the gotoAndPlay(1) from last frame of your main timeline and replace it with stop();

I hope this helps.
