For web pages

You can either download the main file alone:

flShow Carousel 2.0

or download a template to use as a starting point:

  1. Carousel on black background
  2. Carousel on white/any color background
  3. Carousel on transparent background
  4. Carousel and LightBox

Please notice that in all my templates I use SWFObject 2.0 to include the flash object in the html page; any other method can be used instead.

Don't forget to subscribe flShow Newsletter or RSS Feeds to know about updates (in the upper right corner of this page).

Documentation on how to use and customize the Carousel is available on the flShow dokuwiki.

If you want to use the Carousel in blog and forum posts, please refer to the Blogs and Forums section in the documentation page.

This is not an open source project. So don't email me asking for .fla sources. By the way, there is no .fla source: Carousel is an ActionScript only projects compiled with mxmlc. I used FlashDevelop for editing. It is like programming in Java or C++... no timeline, no drawings... only good old school code.

Even more


It is possible to embed the Carousel inside a PowerPoint presentation. Download the example (contains a step by step guide).

It is available as:

  1. a WordPress template (many thanks to Adam Freetly).
  2. a Joomla component: check the Carousel skin of the Ozio Gallery (many thanks to AlexRed & Ste).
  3. a Picasa template (many thanks to Paul van Roekel).

Desktop applications

The Carousel can be used in desktop applications (like Delphi and C++ applications). Provided that you know how to embed flash movies in applications (and you also know how to handle fscommands issued by the movie), you simply have to associate fscommands to your photos:

<photo href="fscommand:mycmd" target="myparm">path/image.jpg</photo>

The main file, together with examples, can be downloaded in the For web pages section.
