View Full Version : Help with a Flash alternative on website
I manage the website for my mother in laws campground. We host with yahoo and use Sitebuilder (free tool from yahoo). It generally does what I need it to, but I want to step it up a notch with some picture effects. We have several pages of pictures of the inside/outsides of our cabins and the property. I want to make a frame with rotating pictures on the front page. Make it a little more attractive. I would like to try something free first to see if it makes a difference. I googled free flash etc and saw several. Has anyone tried any free tools that worked ok for them. Sitebuilder can use HTML frames and I can do video off my camera.
Just a couple of facts...I cant afford something like Dreamweaver...dont have it in the budget.
I also like that fact that we look a little "homemade" , we really try to market the family owned and operated...so I dont want to go over the top
Thanks for any suggestions
If by rotating images you want them to come twirling in out of the ether, display for a bit, and then go dancing off in another direction as the next picture appears then Java would be an option for that, or Flash. Personally for that type display I'd do it with Java rather than creating a flash movie. Easier to create and easier to add/delete images when you want to change it later, as compared to a Flash file. But that's just my preference.
Some of the scripts will be free for personal use, but charge if for a commercial website. But even the ones that charge are pretty inexpensive usually 5~10 dollars or so.
Please don't use Flash.
Flash just really ties up browsers... not everyone is running the latest and greatest hardware on a 10MB connections ;)
Thanks again guys
