Thank you for your answer, I really appreciate it. This was pretty much exactly what I was looking for.
I'm almost there now so need a final bit of help.
I'm using a dynamic template on Blogger and have a profile picture gadget on the right hand side. I'm trying to work out how to replace the gadget with the example scrolling image. I've altered fixed positioning to absolute, so just need to figure out how to add it to the page. The HTML Template edit function doesn't appear to work on Blogger (may be PHP based? I can link to the code if needed) so I wondered if you had any idea how to do this.
here is a pic of my blogger if you need it.
Again, thank you so much for your help!
