The ImageFader is a classic slideshow where each image is faded against each other.

Selecting Images and URLs

Make sure you have the same number of Images as you have URLs, when specifying images. Don't use images that are too big. Note that these images will be included into the SWF file, and it may swell to enormous proportions. Try modifying the compression setting to decrease the SWF file size. If you don't want to have one image with a link, leave the line empty in the URL field.

Fade Speed and Image Pause

The fade speed will set the speed of the fading effect. The image pause is the time period before the image being displayed fades away.

The Background color

The background color will have little affect on the effect. Only when two images are fading against each other and they are half way through the process, then the background color will appear briefly during that process. This is due to the imperfection of the fading process. We recommend putting this color to black or white, depending on what images are used.


Due to a limitation in Flash Player 5.0, you are limited to a maximum of 200 images in the Flash applet. More than that, and the applet will not work.
