Flash Slideshow Maker

Most of Photo Flash Maker users create flash slideshows for their own websites. There are two ways to embed PFM-created Flash slideshows to websites, professionally and manually insert flash slideshow, or get things done easily though online free album service go2album.

 

I. Professional Way to Embed Flash Slideshow to Website

To incorporate the PFM-created flash slideshows created into an existing webpage, you can manually add the <object> and <embed> tags to the page.

Step 1. Open the PFM-created HTML document in a text or HTML editor.

Open the PFM-created HTML document in a text or HTML editor. When you publish a flash slideshow with Photo Flash Maker, the program will create several files and folders as follows:

Source files of the Flash slideshow created with Photo Flash Maker

Among them, the fs_aux.html provides HTML code for embedding the flash movie (.swf file) into webpage.

Step 2. Copy the HTML code included in the <object> and <embed> tags (see example below). This should contain the <object> and <embed> tags.

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,19,0" width="100%" height="100%">
<param name="movie" value="simple.swf?xml_path=slides.xml" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" />
<embed src="simple.swf?xml_path=slides.xml" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="100%" height="100%" allowFullScreen="true"></embed>
</object>

Step 3. Open the existing webpage and paste the <object> and <embed> tags into the desired location in the body of the page.

Note: The code can also be pasted into a table cell or frame.

Step 4. Upload the webpage and Flash files to your Web server.

If the webpage and SWF file (and XML document) are put in different folders, you should change the file paths of these two files in the <object> and <embed> tags, or the Flash would "Load Fail".

For example, if the SWF( and XML) is saved in the “assets_camping” folder, then two lines of the source code should be modified to reflect the true file path:

<param name="movie" value="assets_camping/simple.swf?xml_path=assets_camping/slides.xml" />
……
<embed src="assets_camping/simple.swf?xml_path=assets_camping/slides.xml"…>

Note: If advanced templates(Professional, Web Album, 3D Gallery, Premium templates) is used to create the slideshow, you should upload the XML file, "res" folder, "slides" folder and the "thumbs" folder together with the SWF file to Web server.


II. Easy Way to Embed Flash Slideshow to Website

If you don't want to upload slideshow files to Web server, or have difficult in handling the file path, you can simply upload the Flash slideshow to our free web album service Go2Album, and then get the HTML code to embed to your webpage. With this method, all files generated for the flash slideshow will be saved in the free Go2Album.

Step 1: Sign up for Go2Album

The program will prompt you to the webpage where the Flash slideshow displays. [View examples]

Step 4: Copy the HTML Code of the Flash Slideshow
