Download the Myspace flash maker, then install and run it.

Here I choose the Template "RedRight" and "Fade" transition effect. After that, right click on one photo on the Story Board to set the "Duration Setting". Set "Picture Duration" as 2 sec and "Transition Duration" as 1 sec, then check the option "Apply all settings to all pictures". See more flash photo gallery templates.

Step 5:   Publish

Modify some "Publish Settings" to make the flash banner the best and then click "Create SWF Movie". A pop-up window will prompt you to save your created work.

Step 6: Upload SWF and get Flash URL

After the flash is created, just upload your album on your HTTP server, online or other free swf file hosting sites. Here takes Google site for example. After login Google site with your google account, Check the option "I agree to the terms", click the button "I am ready to create my pages" below, and login.

Click "Choose File" button at the bottom, then browse and select the SWF slideshow on your local hard disk, upload it. Now, the uploaded file will be listed in the "Attachments". Then you have to get the URL address of the SWF slideshow and note it. In Internet Explorer, you can simply click the file, open it with IE, and copy the link address in the address bar. If you are using Firefox, you may right click on the file, in the popup menu, click "Copy Link Location", and get the link address.

The link address should look similar to:

"264" width="550" data="">

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
