Q: Why are these templates loading so fast?
A: The templates load fast because all the pictures are located outside the Flash file, and only if the user wants to see a certain picture by clicking on it's smaller thumbnail, the larger picture will be loaded into the Flash file.

by simply changing the HTML code that refers to the respective picture, for example <img src="photo2.jpg"> all you need to do is to change photo2.jpg to a new filename, and make sure this picture is indeed uploaded to your we server.

Q: I try to edit the FLA file but when I save the FLA I see many errors?
A: To solve this please copy the file to the HTML directory where all the other files are, as the SWF file needs to read the content from some other files in the html directory.
I use Flash CS3 / Flash CS4 and have done the above but still got a problem. When you want to edit the FLA file in Flash CS3/CS4 you need to make some additional changes to the FLA file (this is by now absolute for most templates)

Q: I can not add or delete images.
A: Make sure you do not use UPPERCASES in your filename and file extension. On some web servers you can not load the same file twice, so you need to rename the file before uplaoding it again.
