original: I really just need to figure out how to center the pictures. here is what I did I have modified the tutorial that I finished to have a bigger stage for bigger pictures. Everything is working properly but the pictures are displayed on the left side, I want to have them centered in the stage for the images, after clicking on the thumbnails, plus my images are different sizes as well. ranging from 200x410 to 744x410 but all are the same height of 410. i will post up what I am talking about at the end. I believe it is something within either the action script or the xml coding that allows the position of the image to be differently? please help here is what i am talking about[URL] Continued: Here is my coding in action script:
What I want to do is to make a gallery based on the tutorial gallery here (thumbs), but I want the user to be able to choose different galleries from within the movie. I figured that I could make a loop to cycle through the galleries, then nest another loop inside it to cycle through the pics, captions and thumbs. While I wrote, I constantly tested the output with trace commands, but when I tried nesting the loop I lost all output.. I'm pretty new to both Flash and Actionscript, so if theres an obvious solution I havent been able to see it.. This is my temp XML file:
i am trying to put some things together following the tutorials on this site. I did the tutorial 'Photo Gallery Using XML and Flash'and I followed it step by step and uploaded it with all the necessary files onto my remote server (xml file, Gallery folder, fla, swf, and html) - however, when I test the movie with flash, it seems to work fine (except the description test, my question to that later), but when I test it online it shows only the first image (but displays the correct number of images in the gallery); even when clicking the next button, it keeps loading the first image the first image. In other galleries (I use the structure for multiple galleries for my portfolio) the first image never loads at all.
Also, about the description text, in between the <caption> and </caption>, can I use <strong> and <em> and <br /> to change the appearance of my text? All it says is 'null'.If you want to look at what I mean check out my portfolio in the making. The problem with the first image displaying only is under 'paintings' and both the projects in 'design - packaging'. The second problem (no picture loading at all) is on some of the buttons in 'design - identity' (where I have not changed the description text of the tutorial yet). Again,
I remember seeing a few tutorials here and there for using php to generate an XML file of all the pics in a directory. I tried looking for one but can't seem to find any. Does anyone have any links to one?
I was working with the XML Photo Gallery Thumbnail Tutorial on this site: [URL] And I modified it for my own usage, making it a vertical gallery instead, and had no problems until I came upon the thumbnail images. When I replaced the original thumbs with my new thumbs (that I sized based on width, as it is a vertical gallery) it got all screwed up. The images are of all different shapes. So when it loads up, some of them had huge gaps in between them, and others were even overlapping. So I fixed it by making the heights of all the images the same, resulting in a working thumb gallery, but now half my thumbs are cropped off by the mask. I'm looking for a way to fix it where I still have the same spacing between the images, and that they are all the same width, but can vary in their height. Here's the section of the code I am using:
I saw the tutorial here on how to make a Flash XML photo gallery with a scrolling thumbnail bar. Awesome!
The thing is, the example he DIDN'T choose to illustrate is the one I want make - exactly.[URl]..Is there somewhere else I can find this? The problem is that I have say, 16 photos and I want 4 displaying on the stage at one time. I want a forward / back button available to switch through the remaining 12 images, when the user clicks the buttons (as opposed to a scroller, which I find difficult to control and therefore less useable).
The problem comes when loading the four images from my XML file. I am able to load the first four, but how do I indicate in AS that the next four images are to be loaded, until there are no more images left? What if I add 5 more, I want to be able to have that AS load them. I was using a mod function in my script, but I keep getting the wrong remainder. I'll have to post the code later.
I modified a version of the xml photo gallery tutorial featured on this website, and am using that. But when my images pop up the quality is horrible. I've gone through and checked everything I know to look at. Then I decided to build my flash site twice as big, and use pictures that were twice as big to get some quality. This didn't work either..
Based on the Photo Gallery using XML and Flash tutorial found here:I�m having trouble with loading thumbnail images of various sizes which overlap if they are smaller than the previous image.The specific line that causes this is target_mc._x = hit_left._x+(target_mc._width+5)*k;I�ve tried all sorts of things with the closest being the following which put the images in the right size, but with the omission of �k� their order is backwardstarget_mc._x = (thumbnail_mc._width+5);Here is the full function block as per the tutorial
i want each image that opens up from the scrolling thumbnails below to have another set buttons relating to the main image. for instance:
numbers = buttons linked to another set of external images that are related to the big image. the problem is i don't know what controls the thumbnail/main image when i click on the scroller (i'm kinda lost in the code). so right now i have only one set of numbers regardless of which big image opens up.
I tried to remake the random movement tutorial [URL] but at the end the objects stayed all at the same place. So I downloaded the fla at the bottom of the page and when I previewed the animation it also did not work. I use Flash MX on a Windows XP pc.
I'm currently building a site for my photography. (broke college student) but I followed this tutorial and loved it but I'm wondering how I could number each photo? So when you click on the next button it shows you that your on photo 2 out of 65? [URL]
I have used the code provided by the amazing sbeener and it works really well. What I want to do now is add little thumbnails beside the large main image and once the user clicks on the thumbnail the associated image is shown. I am relatively new to action scripting but learning everyday.URL...
I stumbled upon the photo gallery page when looking at how to create one for my website,It works perfectly however how could i change/add to the code so that for a specific photo a certain caption appears which changes for each different photo?
How can I create a photo gallery to put into my current flash site Iam creating? Using flash cs3.When going on line I saw that maybe you can use Dreamweaver, XML, or even Photoshop can anybody explain the difference between using one or the other?
I'm looking for a lightweight, simple way to create a dynamic photo gallery, with specification. Basically, I have 55 head shots arranged like a yearbook page. I want someone to be able to click on an image, and have a window pop-up that shows the photo, plus additional text information. (I'm pretty sure I can create 55 frames and put an image on each one, but that is bulky, I do not want to go clicking around to different frames on the timeline,) I was hoping there was an alpha/tweening option, or an xml option.
I'm trying to create the simple photo gallery with thumbnails which is in the tutorial Adding Thumbnails, but I'm having a bit of a problem. I've just done the Photo Gallery Using XML and Flash tutorial [URL] which worked perfectly . I've then gone on to the Adding Thumbnails tutorial, [URL] which follows on.I've been working my way throught the tutorial, but when I get to point ix. on page three, I don't get the thumbnails loading at all. I have checked, and double checked the code I have, and I've copied the code from the tutorial assuming that this is right, but nothing appears to work.I'm using Flash MX, not MX 2004.
[URL]. It's a tutorial that shows how to create a photo gallery and load the pictures and comments via XML. My problem is the following, the gallery and everything works well, but I when I try to load it into a container then everything messes up. Here's what I have: I have a main movie (the main .swf file) with a container in it, when clicking on one of the buttons from that movie the gallery.swf loads into the container (the gallery is the exact gallery from the tutorial) and it works well, until I press the button to load it again.
It seems that it messes up the value of "p". I tried tracking it, on the first load it tracks normally p=1, 2, 3, 4.... but on the second load it reacts as if it's double tracking it p=0 1, 2 2, 3 3, 2 4 ... It seems that Flash somehow keeps the old value of "p" in mind. I tried reseting it somehow or something but I can't seem to make it work (or maybe I have to rebuild the whole thing?).
It works perfectly if I load it only once but if I load the gallery.swf twice or more times then it goes crazy (or since I have more buttons on the stage, after pressing one and coming back to the gallery, it does the same, it's messed up). How can I "reset" the value of 0 on every load or something? I even tried playing around with unloadMovie but can't figure out how to use it.
I am using CS4 and ActionScript 2.0.I am trying to create a photo gallery.I have created 4 different movie clip buttons that reside on the content layer.Each button consists of one image.When the movie clip button is pressed, I want the full size image to appear on the stage next to the buttons.You can see the buttons in the image below.I am trying to create an empty movie clip holder that would reside on the main timeline while the buttons reside on the content layer.I need to get the images to load into the empty movie clip and then unload when the next button is selected?I can't seem to get the buttons to "talk" to the empty movie clip holder.I did manage to create code for an empty movie clip holder within each button, but then I end up with all four images on top of each other.
its for a photo gallery that I downlowded,the images fades in and out, but only start that when you click a button(timer).I'm trying to founf out where in the script I can change this, so that the photo's start automatically,rather than, on a button click.I have pasted the script below, is that ok, or would people rather a zip file of the files?
