Most of Photo Slideshow Maker users create Flash slideshows for their own websites. There are two ways to embed PFM-created Flash slideshows to websites, professionally, or get things done easily.

Professional Way to Embed Flash Slideshow to Website

To incorporate the PFM-created flash slideshows created into an existing webpage, you can manually adding the <OBJECT> and <EMBED> tags to the page. You can also download or watch online video tutorial on how to embed slideshow.

Step 1. Open the PFM-created HTML document in a text or HTML editor.

Open the PFM-created HTML document in a text or HTML editor. When you publish a Flash slideshow with Photo Slideshow Maker, the program will create several files and folders as follows:

Source files of the Flash slideshow created with Photo Flash Maker

Among them, the fs_aux.html provides HTML code for embedding the Flash movie (.swf file) into webpage.

Step 2. Copy the HTML code included in the <object> and <embed> tags (see example below). This should contain the <OBJECT> and <EMBED> tags.

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase=",0,19,0" width="100%" height="100%">
<param name="movie" value="simple.swf?xml_path=slides.xml" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" />
<embed src="simple.swf?xml_path=slides.xml" quality="high" pluginspage="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="100%" height="100%" allowFullScreen="true"></embed>

Step 3. Open the existing webpage and paste the <object> and <embed> tags into the desired location in the body of the page. This can also be pasted into a table cell or frame.

Step 4. Upload the webpage and Flash files to your Web server.

If the webpage and SWF file (and XML document) are put in different folders, you should change the file paths of these two files in the <object> and <embed> tags, or the Flash would "Load Fail".

For example, if the SWF( and XML) is saved in the “assets_camping” folder, then two lines of the source code should be modified to reflect the true file path:

<param name="movie" value="assets_camping/simple.swf?xml_path=assets_camping/slides.xml" />
<embed src="assets_camping/simple.swf?xml_path=assets_camping/slides.xml"…>

You should upload the XML file, "res" folder, "slides" folder and the "thumbs" folder together with the SWF file to Web server, if Advanced template is used to create the slideshow.
