    what adobe product should I use?

    Progressive_Learning
      I am looking to develop a banner for my work site that changes from picture to picture. LIke this.

      http://www.yamaha-motor.com/

      you will notice at the top of yamaha's site. it changes from a boat pic...to a jet ski pic....to an atv pic...ect.

      What program are they using to accomplish this.

      I thought Flash .... but being the newb that I am...maybe there is something easier to use.

      Is it a movie they are playing? or are they using flash? or something else.

      maybe someone can tell me.

            There are a number of ways to accomplish fading from one picture to
            the next; Flash almsot guarantees that your viewers can see it and the
            file can be fast to download, provided you understand how to optimize
            files.

            No offense, but since it's hard for you to determine that they used
            Flash, you may want to look for a simple solution. Swish would be
            worth a look.
