Does anyone know of a good slideshow component or snippet for cf? basically i would just like to rotate a few thumbnail size images in a featured area of my website. thanks.

Download the gallery_viewer.zip, unzip, and put the gallery_viewer.cfm file into any folder with .jpg images. Upload the file and browse to the page to view your slideshow gallery.

thanks. i will try that. an add on question before i explore this; i am going to use this to show like 5 different movie posters, 5 different music posters, etc for about 7 subjects or so to show a featured type gallery. would i put the 5 thumbs in an indiv folder for each subject then put the .cfm file in the each folder and then reference from there?

thanks again.
