    Slide show with dissolving effect

    Hi

    I have created a very simple slide show (www.freezywater-st-georges.enfield.sch.uk) that simply puts images into an array and then rotates them round.

    It works fine, but it isn't very "Flash"

    I would like to have the images dissolve - ie the current one fades, and the next one begins to appear.

    I have done some searches and as yet havn't really found anything that appears to work. I don't just want a cut and paste job - I want to understand!!!

    Is there some function that I don't know about that does this? Should I be looking to use dhtml or Flash rather than javascript?

    I would really appreciate any pointers

    Many thanks in advance

    Edward

    I would look into the scriptaculous library, very easy to use

    a fade would be

    new Effect.Fade(id);

    and appear would be

    new Effect.Appear(id)

    Vist here: http://script.aculo.us/
