Topic: Background image when loading gallery & high res downloa

I'm a total newbie to Flash.  lol
I've been able to make a background image for the gallery,
but how do I make a background image for the loader?
It looks stupid with a default background colour.

I couldn't find any topic on how to link to a high res download?
Stupid me!  :?
Is there any way, to put high res images in a seperate folder
and open them when you right click on the preview, and open in
a new window, og do you have to customize the caption field,
and add the download feature there?

Please help!

Try setting the swf background color. See Q18 in the FAQ: http://www.airtightinteractive.com/simp … r/faq.html

I'm talking about a background IMAGE, not a background colour.

How do i ad a background image to the loader, instead of the dark grey
#181818 colour?

Re: Background image when loading gallery & high res downloa

You can't make a background image for the loader, since you would need a loader for that image also. You can try setting a background image on your HTML page and setting your SWF to be transparent, but there is no guarantee which image will load first, the image specified in the HTML doc, or the image you set as the SWF background.

Well..
My web developer can't do it, and you cant do it?
How come I can do it?
Now i opened Flash 8 for the third time, to solve the problem, and it took me 5 minutes to fix.
I simply imported the background image and put it in a fourth layer behind the loader.

Problem solved!  big_smile

Ok - good for you.

The problem is that now the user has to wait for the first image to download before he sees anything. Try using the 'Simulate Download' option in Flash to see how this works.
