The Blossoming Trail XML Image Gallery
The Blossoming Trail XML Image Gallery makes for an interesting, creative and compact gallery system. You can initially see all of the images in a scrolling thumbnail form and then once clicked, it will open that image with all the rest fading out and then when closed, will make it elegantly glide back to its original location in the line of thumbnails. You can have as many images as you want, which includes transparent PNGs and SWFs. Images can be any size you want and you can also decide the dimensions of the thumbnails. You can add spacing to the thumbnails and more – please see below for a complete list of what you can change in the XML.
The Blossoming Trail XML Image Gallery is used in The Blossoming Trail XML Site Template file.
AS3 only. Opens with Flash CS3.
Step by step instructions are included and code is commented. Also, two html files are included to demonstrate SWF embedding for both full browser and fixed size.
