I want to make a slideshow in flash where I can have forward and backward buttons on the right and left sides of the movie that make the slides go to the next but also have buttons along the bottom if the person already knows what photo they want to see. The best example I can think of showing is the taco bell site. Here:
on the burritos page they have the left and right arrows. I want that and I also like the action. I've done an action like that for a forward movement in the timeline but I don't know how to do it backwards when you press the back button. In addition to these side buttons, (on the taco bell page they have tacos, burritos, gorditas etc. on the bottom that go to other pages but I want these bottom icons to be the same images of the current slide show) I want the bottom icons to be clickable and go to their corresponding image in the slide show fashion. I hope I'm explaining this correctly.

I think the forward motion is your basic straight forward forward motion right? I like how theirs fades out rather quickly as it gets to the next image. But how do I do the backwards motion? And how do I do the action on the buttons to go backwards to say image 1 if they are on image 4? Oh and this is in actionscript 2.0. I haven't learned 3.0 yet and don't even know much of 2.0. Please help! I've been trying to figure this out for weeks. This is my last resort.

Thanks ahead of time.
