How do I find a flash gallery for my website that pulls from my Flickr account?

Is there a fully customizable flash image gallery for my website that will pull photos from my Flickr sets?

I need something like PictoBrowser but more customizable and without the "pictobrowser" link embedded in there. It is perfect in that it loads from Flickr sets, so I can have one particular set feed my website gallery and just worry about uploading my photos to Flickr and sorting there.

I have looked at dfgallery and it looks very close to what I need, but I am not knowledgeable enough to install it on my site. Also it doesn't look like it supports specific sets - and I need that capability.

I realize there are others that pull from flickr, but they tend to be gimmicky "postcard" galleries. I want the streamlined, simple "main image with thumbnails along the bottom" look.

Is there anything similar to Pictobrowser, free or not...that will pull from Flickr sets and create a Flash gallery that is completely customizable (in terms of colors, links etc)? I know this is a tall order, but any help would be appreciated.

Slideshow Pro is pretty powerful and customizable.

SlideShowPro definitely will do this. Their documentation may be sufficient, but I can get you in touch with a web dev shop I've dealt with who has set this up for a few of their clients, mefimail me if you'd like more information or assistance.

FlickrViewer should do what you want. It's a PHP script that dynamically generates the XML file that is fed into simpleviewer. Or something like that.

Simpleviewer Pro combined with FlickrViewer seems to be the option that suits me best. Thanks for the input!
