Hi! I love the way Reuters has set up their slideshow - but am not quite capable of telling whether I can just use the code, or whether they've used something special to set it up... Can anyone help? Here's an example:

Many thanks in advance!

It looks like the whole script is in the source inside <div id="section1">

OK, I admit it, it's beyond me... I'm not enough of a programmer to deal with this without spending hours figuring it out.

Does anyone know where I can find a similar, personalizable javascript slideshow? I like that this one is elegant, fits into the page, and doesn't load the photos into cache... It loads quickly.

I have JAlbum and use the FotoPlayer skin (http://www.respirando.net/cambodia/multimedia/Faces%20of%20Wat%20Opot/faces.html) but can't figure out a way to just make a slideshow as PART of a page instead of on a completely new page... Any help would be appreciated!!

Thanks - I did take a look there, and found some little slideshows to put on my site. Am trying a tooltip function, but seem to be having a problem with the code - so I'll post on their site for help, unless someone here has an idea...

Thanks for the lead - it's a great resource!
