    New to Flash

    I am needing to update the Flash files for all the artists on this site. I'm brand new at Flash but know DW, CSS and FW, etc. Is this something I can pick up pretty quickly (is it difficult, easy) ? If so, wondering how long each Flash file (thumbnails, larger image and description on bottom) would take (not for a newbie like me but for an experienced person).

    Thanks sooooo much!

    Hard to say not knowing for sure how it is set up. Though Flash is not somethign one can pick up over night.

    Looking at the pages on that site it appears to be loading the images one by one (the thumbnails) so this leads me to believe that they might be getting loaded externally.

    Is there an .xml file included within the folder for the flash files?

    No it won't be that quick. it will take you a little time to understand and then execute the flash files properly.

    Taking apart others flash files can be a pain.
    If you look in the project library, you can find all movies within it.

    You won't need the fla or project files - the image data is stored in imageData.xml, you can just edit that and upload new images.
