This is a flash component for building a fast loading image gallery/slide show.
This is a XML driven, AS version 3.0 based image gallery. The show control buttons are available as small icons on the left side of the display area. The controls available are the usual play/pause, forward and reverse of course. There is a full screen icon too. When the show plays a time indicator shows how long the particular image is going to be displayed. The gallery is resizable, it adjusts to the browser window size automatically. Thus every visitor is able to see the images in right width and height ratio and no part of it is hidden. The preloading operation loads all the images at the start of the show, thus there is no delay in loading the next image. It is a good components that can be used to show off a lot of images.
What makes this really user friendly is the fact that you do not need Flash expertise to be able to use the component effectively. There is a range of parameters associated with the gallery that you can tune up to let the player merge into your site scheme easily. One XML file is all that need to be tuned up to set these parameters. It comes with source files. You can further tweak the look and feel of the show if you are so inclined. The XML file makes it easy to update and maintain over time too.
