Define different cursor looks

hello everybody!

this is my first post here.

im building a photographers website right now with pro 5.6.1.
and i want to change the look of the cursor. when the cursor is on the right side of the picture it should be a right arrow and when on the left a arrow to the left.
so i`m thinking of define two areas of 50% each, with a rollover with a clik to the next picture. but how can i define the look of the cursor for each area?

for any help i whould be very thankful!

You can certainly style your cursor - example here http://www.deltadesign.co/fw_examples/cursor-style.html

But you will need to do a bit of hand coding.

Hi,

I saw this list yesterday and was not sure on how to react on. As David figured out it is of course possible to change the cursors view. But to be honest, this is a way you need the visitor to do something (hovering an area etc.). But some people expect that something happens (and if not, they feel viewing a single image while you want probably have a little showcase of a bunch of images. It can be done by hand but I think there could be some more modern and easier to achieve things if it comes to showcase.

  1. Showcase:

I wrapped this once in an example:

and with captions:

  1. Carousel

I love it and it is even CMS’able in webyep. something like:

  1. Slider

This isn’t that easy to build, but another possibility to do:

It might be messed with something totally different and if so please ignore. But from the knowledge of a lot of photographers request here on board I thought it isn’t damage to do.

hi!

sorry for answering so late. first i have to thank you for your responding.

But it is not exactly what iàm looking for. Here is a good example what i want to do: http://www.stuarthallphoto.com

If you go into one of the gallerys, you will see how the cursor will change into a left or a right arrow.

maybe this is only possible with flash?

greetings!

That certainly is Flash but I find that it really doesn’t give a great experience.

On my machine the cursor actually disappears at the edges of the images - all in all a bit disconcerting.

It doesn’t take much to put people off and that implementation puts me off.

I think that these things are best left au naturel.
