I did a similar thing with two movieClips. One was the background image and one was the foreground image. I'd load a new image into the background and fade out the foreground. Load the a new image into the foreground with alpha set to 0 and then fade in the fore ground. load another image in to the back ground and so on an so forth.
Thanks for your reply Jim :)
I had actually thought of something similar. How did you accomplish the
fade out? Is there a way to script it so that the alpha value goes from 100
to 0 over a set period of time? Additionally, what I am hoping to achieve
is the ability to have a number of buttons \ movie clips across the bottom
of the stage, and an image \ movie clip in the "main" portion of the stage,
and when one of the buttons is pressed, it fades out whatever image is in
the main portion of the stage and fades in the newly selected image. Kind
of like a button driven portfolio of images. I have tried to find tutorials
on the web on image portfolios with fade in and out effects, but to this
point, have not had much luck. If there are any tutorials that anyone can
point me to, it would be greatly appreciated.

I wrote a little routine that changes the alpha over a variable period of time. The time base could be from the setInterval function or the timelines frame rate.
