    Anyone have any good flash based site templates? Right now I'm using Imagevue V2 and I was curious if there was another app that works better. Most of the things I've found only work as a gallery, you can't include welcome, bio, or contact pages.... so "Simpleviewer = Fail" for what I want to do.

    Cool, here are some demo galleries for imagevue:

    imagevuex.com/imagevue/demo

    It's pretty slick and if you look long enough you can find a *wink, wink* "free" version

    I use postcard viewer in Lightroom 2. It works for what I need but I am not a fan of flash based websites what-so-ever.

    less than $100, but they can sell it a hundred times. just looking around, the price of a completely custom template that you won't sell to anyone else is outrageous.

    Livebooks is the standard for flash based galleries, but I don't have that kind of money. I'll keep working with Imagevue X2 until something better comes along.

    I kinda made merged flash with xml for easy gallery management on my part.
    www.spkphotos.com

    Its nothing fancy but it does what I want it to do. I need to have it preload the images around it once the initial one is loaded. I also need to fix the looping and change from flash to css. Its more of a learning experience for me
