You need only basic understanding of programming thought for following this tutorial. I want to let you know that even only having just a basic knowledge of flash, we already can create a good and creative design. It's true.. that's what flash can be...

I will show you how to use drop down menu in showing your favorite pictures. When you click the channel button, it will show a drop down buttons which every button can be clicked to show different pictures. I use the collection of my favorite pictures. You can change it to your own favorite pictures. When you rollout the mouse from the buttons, the drop down menu will hidden out.

In this tutorial, I'm using Flash MX, I'm sure it also work for Flash 5.

» 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.
