Flash CS4 Tutorial: Simple Non-XML Photo Gallery

17 04 2011

Before we get going and really dig into building this photo gallery I want to take a moment and just explain what we want to do and maybe a little on how we expect to do it. I am going to guide you through building a simple base dynamic photo gallery and each month we will continue building features into the gallery, things like a dynamic loader, XML support, fancy buttons, contact form, maybe even a sound/media player and my plan is that in the end we will have almost a fully dynamic site/web application you could use as your portfolio for web work, or photography, or maybe even a client if you so wish, oh and the kicker is we will do as much as we can with Actionscript and as little as we can with Flash as far as drawing shapes, tweening on the timeline, and symbols as we can. True to my nature, I have not really planned out how this whole thing is going to finally look, so we may encounter some bumps along the way, but I guarantee it will be a great learning experience!

Great tutorial! I have a question. — What happen to the varied optimized area in CS5? How can Adobe take a valuable feature as this because it allows you to reduce image size way down. Is it hidden or does Dreamweaver does the job now. Please help — thanks.

The code doesn’t work…..

Here’s the error message that comes out:

” Error #2044: Unhandled IOErrorEvent:. text=Error #2035: URL Not Found. ”

Any ideas? My code is exactly the same as yours….
