How do create a dissolve transition in Flash?

Hi Experts...

Firstly I am a designer and not a programmer nor have any knowledge of HTML coding so would be grateful for any answers to be plain old english for dummies! :)

I am trying to create an very short slide show containing both JPG's and text and want to dissolve from one picture and text to another.  

This is to be used in Dreamweaver on my home page if it of any consequence :)

Can anyone either tell me how to do this - in simple and step by step terms or guide me to a website???

Hi. Since you've posted this question in the Adobe Flash section I'm guessing that you realise that Flash is a good candidate for creating this short slideshow. Unfortunately, you don't say whether or not you own a copy of Flash to be able to create your own slideshow.

If you do own a copy of Flash, try these next two links to see how to build a simple slideshow.

If you don't have Flash but do have Dreamweaver, here's a tutorial that uses Dreamweaver to create a flash slideshow

And if you don't have Flash or Dreamweaver, or you want something flashier (sorry!) then have a look at the content at the following link. Most of these will let you create really cool slideshows *without* needing to edit any of the flash content. They do cost a few dollars, but they cost lots less than having to buy Dreamweaver and / or Flash.
