Description: Display your photos with a sliding reel
Author: John Bezanis
Added: June 18th 2008
Version: Flash 8

This applet grabs images using an xml file and displays them in a photo reel form, with a slider that reacts to the mouse's y position. Each image is shown as a thumbnail on the reel, and a seperate image can be used as the thumbnail. A caption for each image is shown as well.
Example html code for the applet:
<object data="47-photoreel.swf?xmlfile=photoreel.xml" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="550" height="320">
<param name="movie" value="47-photoreel.swf?xmlfile=photoreel.xml"/>
You can add the code <param name="wmode" value="transparent"/> just before </object> to make the background color transparent.
Example format for the xml file:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<image><thumb></thumb><caption>Caption for Pic 1</caption><pic></pic></image>
<image><thumb></thumb><caption>Caption for Pic 2</caption><pic></pic></image>
<image><thumb></thumb><caption>Caption for Pic 3</caption><pic></pic></image>
