Photos flow smoothly with Flash

Posted by Charles | July 25, 2007 .

Unless you are living in a cave and never go out, you have some photo hosted somewhere online. You must used some sort of of photo slide effect function somewhere online. Photo slider does what it does. But is it kinda boring? Well, not with PhotoFlow Flash component.

Have you ever seen Mac’s widget? Those liquid effect that smoothly moving icons and highlighting the one you will working on? That’s what PhotoFlow does. It makes photo viewing more elegant and interesting. Click here to give it try.

It does come with price but after playing with it for awhile I think it’s worthy. Especially if you are running a site showing some pictures. This certainly will give a great user experience and provide good level of stickiness for your site.

Behind the component, it actually does quite some works for you. Here are some highlights:

  • Easily update images using the Component Inspector, ActionScript or an XML file
  • Adjustable flip speed, spacing between stacked images and image size
  • Customizable perspective view and reflections
  • Option to flip images as a slideshow
  • Add links/hyperlinks to each image
  • ActionScript events to perform an action when an image has loaded, is selected, etc…
  • Images can be external or included in the library
  • Mouse wheel image flipping (Windows only)
  • Optionally display a name for each image
  • Option to set the number of images to preload
  • Option to automatically scale images to fit or to fill the defined size
  • Zoom in on selected image or on all images on mouse over
  • photoFlow can open on a pre-defined image
  • Customizable background color and opacity
  • Option to start flipping from left-to-right or right-to-left
  • Supports sound effects for image flipping
  • Built-in preloader
  • Light weight (weighs only 18kb with the scrollbar)

As I keep saying and preaching at Flex888, visualization is one of the key trend on web and it’s getting very obviously day after day. Any site deals with multimedia needs seriously have some investment on such RIA technologies.
