Prepare your Favorite Pictures

First of all, before you start, you have to prepare your favorite pictures. Crop the pictures or adjust the image size which fit into the size of frame you intended to draw.

In this tutorial, I used Adobe Photoshop to edit my favorite pictures. I adjusted the image size to be 340 x 200 pixels.

Getting Started with the Flash:

Create a new movie, 550 x 350 pixels, 12 fps, background color back.

Draw Frame for Image

Draw 2 rectangular shapes using rectangular tool to create a frame, and fill with gradient grey color. As accessories of the frame, you can draw other shapes to make the rectangular frame looks more artistic. I draw 2 convex shapes and put it on the left top and right bottom of the frame. I use this accessories to write the title of pictures shown. You can also use these spaces to write the date of pictures or others information regarding to the pictures.

At this step, your stage and timeline will look like this:

» 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.
