Cool Flash image gallery help!

Hello!

I'm trying to create a cool looking side scrolling photo gallery in Flash. I found one online that I really like and am trying to mimic. You can find it here:
http://besofresh.com/flashtuts/full.html

Essentially what I am looking for is an "iTunes coverflow-like" gallery but not as complex - mainly just having the center image the largest and the images to the left and right progressively smaller in size.

There is a tutorial for the example that I've provided which can be found here:
http://flash.tutsplus.com/tutorials/xml/build-a-dynamic-gallery-with-actionscript-30-and-php/
However, I find the tutorial a little much to follow as well, I don't need everything that they've added in their gallery. Primarily, I don't need the images to load from XML. I would either like them to load from the library or just have a movieclip that contains all the images to begin with.

I am not that strong at Actionscript programming (I understand the code, but am just not that great at starting something from scratch) and am trying to find a much more simple way to approach this. So far, all I have created is an image gallery scroller (which I found another tutorial for) but thats about it. Since I can't really attach my file, I've uploaded it here: http://drop.io/ee_flash_help

If anyone has any suggestions or can point me in the right direction, I can really use the help. Thanks.

P.S. I am using Flash CS3 with Actionscript 3

I am not that great in Flash myself, however I thought I would just suggest something. I was looking for the same thing you are looking for.  The iTunes like album flow.  I did come across this.  Running on PHP and CSS alone it's an awesome gallery:

I am sorry I couldn't help you with the Flash part, but it's just a suggestion.

Thanks for the reply LZ1. The solution you provided is definitely a good alternative to a Flash version of the cover flow. And I may even consider using it in the future.

However, for the project I'm working on right now, there are other components that will need to be included where I will need to use Flash. For example, I was planning on making each image in the gallery a movieclip and add some animation and interactivity. So I think I'm going to need to stick with Flash.

Thanks anyway.
