I am looking to create a page/addition to current websites that I run for a couple of youth organizations. These pages would be a way for these organizations to say 'thank you' to people who have served and are serving in the military. The plan is for a song to play in the background and the screen to automatically do a slideshow or change pictures. This would be something new for me to try. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
In my opinion i would use Macromedia flash which is an animation program you could have the series of images and have them fade in or whatever with the music in the background.
flash is definitely the way to go, yet when you start adding music to flash, it the files get really big really fast, sometimes more than doubling the size of the file, depending on the music and animation.
