How to preload images dynamically in flash so that the image navigation doubles as the load bar. Like http://big.dk/projects/lim/lim.html
Trying to redo my design portfolio site. I've been told I need it to be in Flash. I'm great with other programs but not Flash, so I'm teaching myself. I SUCK. I don't know what I'm doing!!! So I need 1) technical help* and 2) feedback on the design I have so far. 'Cuz this is all really new to me and I want it to be well-received. Do you have a portfolio site? What works for you?
*Calling all Flash wizards in the Bay area! Wanna make a few bucks & help me? [more inside]
Looking for a flash based portfolio that I saw a year or so ago. Full browser window sort of thing, white background I seem to recall. All of the projects were on small little horizontal strips, scattered around the window. Each strip had a project picture on the left and whitespace or maybe a spot of text, such as a title on the right. Clicking on a strip would cause it to visually float up (I seem to recall that there was a nice 3d effect and generated shadow) and expand to give more project detail. Does this ring a bell for anyone? Simple and elegant in it's execution.
