Adding to George’s comment, and if you are using FW Pro, you can use
Sequence Timer with the Target Show/Hide Layer, which allows you to
fade between images, rather than the push-pull type slide show, where
Carousel is you starting point.
I also recommend SWF’nSlide Pro for easy Flash type slide shows and if
you want animated text as well there is Text-Osterone, both from
You didn’t say what version of Freeway you are using, but if you have FW5, Softpress’s target show/hide layer action works well if you need to do a simple slideshow without using Flash. Have a look at the tutorial on: http://www.softpress.com/products/scriptaculous.php
There are numerous otherways to produce what you want… an alternative you could try the Mootools Action Suite. Its not free… but there are a number of extra features that make it worth the money. have a look and see if its closer to what you need: http://www.coastalrugs.com/Actions/fadingslideshow.html
It’s worth noting that the Mootools Action doesn’t work on the same page as Scriptaculous effects so as long as you avoid putting the two together you shouldn’t have a problem.
