Flash XML thumbnail photography project

Hi,

This is the project I need help with.

Its a Flash based site for a photographer. He wants a thumbnail page, and when you click on the thumbnail the enlarged photograph opens up on its own page. I don't know how to do this in Flash, I need some help with this project.

Here is the home page of the project I'm doing.

[url removed, login to view]

Here is the thumbnail page I've developed so far:

[url removed, login to view]

...notice 43 thumbnails on this page.

Go ahead and click on the upper-left hand picture of the 2 girls, you'll see it opens up to the enlarged photo of

[url removed, login to view]

Now, what the photographer is asking for is that the thumbnails open up into a slideshow, and if

someone clicks on "thumbnail picture 'sisters'" for example... that the enlarged photograph opens up in its own

window, on pic 'sisters' in that series.

I've tried on my own, and this is what I've come up with so far:

[url removed, login to view]

....while the photographer likes this slide show... the problem is that its "only a slide-show"... meaning that the little thumbnail page doesn't link to the corresponding picture.

And another problem with this "test_coney_island_slideshow.swf" is that its a flash movie thats too big. It only has 5 photographs in the test and already its 1.2 megabytes in size. While the design look and feel is what the customer wants, this test

slide-show is not to specifications yet.

Another test on my own:

I've learned that its better to use an XML file server side with the Flash presentation ...

so its basically just pushing out one pic at a time as you click them... rather that pushing out the whole Flash

movie for full download of all the photographs.

This is what I've got so far:

[url removed, login to view]

Now, you'll see 4 thumbnails, and when you click them the enlarged photograph opens on the bottom.

And using the XML file, the pictures open up a lot quicker for the client than the other flash test I mentioned above,

so thats good. The problem is that I don't know how to get the thumbnail page linked up with XML to open up to

enlarged pictures on their own page.

Here is the XML file in case you want to look at it:

[url removed, login to view]

In the clients own words:

"...I'd like the thumbnails being on their own page and the enlargement having a new page (rather than seeing the thumbnails and the enlarged selection at the same time)....."

Does anyone know how to get this project in the right direction?

Once I know how to do it... I'll be OK. I don't need somebody to work all 400 photographs for this extensive project, thats my job!!

I just need someone to show me how to link the thumbnails page up to enlarged photographs on a new page, using XML to pull the pictures while keeping the general graphic design of the site intact.

What the client doesn't want:

>> He does NOT want some stock-install of a photo gallery:

I already tried that with this test:

[url removed, login to view]

>> He does NOT want both thumbnails and enlarged pics on the same page, it competes for space. I've seen some cool flash photo gallery templates, but he doesn't like them because t-nails and bigger pics are on the same page.

>> He does NOT want any fancy design... that grey looking, simple design you see at [url removed, login to view] is exactly what he wants. Don't bother trying to dazzle us with some fancy modern-age Flash, this customer thinks all that stuff is crap.

I need someone with excellent communication skills to show/demonstrate to me how to accomplish this project.

I can provide temporary work space with a temp password so that the XML and .fla tests can be worked/uploaded.

Thank you,

Regards,

Paul
