    Pay is good and I need to see your portfolio, If I like it I'll pass your contact info onto him and he'll choose someone. This could lead to more work.

    Scope of the project is a custom scrolling gallery that interfaces with the database that contains the pictures similar to this www.nicholasroutzen.com and www.4-optic.com . Pay would be around 200 or more depending on how complex or how fancy he wants it.

    the nicholasroutzen one isn't very impressive.. it looks like each picture is just embedded in separate .swf files and then each page links to each one

    so you have as many .swf files as you do .jpegs

    and most of it was done with open source code..

    yeha well he wants something like it, if you can make it better you get the project but I wouldn't tell him what you just said, code something better. He wouldn't know any better but he needs someone who knows what they are doing.

    maybe 300 at the most. I'm just the messenger hooking someone up. If it takes an hour or even two to do Its still 150-300 dollars an hour which is pretty good.

    Tell your buddy good luck for me.
     
  7. the gallery itself should be simple to do, less than an hour or two. but the database part might throw off a lot of interested actionscript guys. does the database contain links to the pictures? it would be a lot better to do it with XML.

    If he wanted to pull the data from XML he could just use some free flash gallery online. He's paying because of the database part.
     
  9. it was just a suggestion considering the $200 price tag.

    Possibly, he just said database, for all I know having it pull pics from a directory would be easier, thats how I would do it.
