Flashy Blog Header

Hey everybody! This one's for photographers!

I got an email from Ft. Smith photographer Ray Peoples about me new blog header. You know, the one that is like a mini-slideshow and totally sweet?! Yeah, that one. ;)

Hey Dale & Meredith,

I really enjoy checking out your stuff!
My question I had for you was actually about your blog and how you got the slideshow header working for ya. Any help would be great... thanks guys...

Here's my answer: there are two ways you can do it. The first is through flash. Slideshows have become simpler in flash since I began using it 3 or 4 versions ago. The problem is having blogger host it as a title. So, the smart way around it, and what I did, was to create an animated gif in Photoshop. That way, blogger could handle it. If you don't know what an animated gif is, or have no idea how to create one that flips through images, let me know and I'll send you a really nerdy email. Also, make sure you have a fair chunk of time to dedicate to the project that is distractionless.

Hope that helps!
