I have the same problem on my Mac, as well. Any solutions? I really could use this function in a big way.
Are you speaking about Fireworks CS3 and can it create a slide show ?
In what format dose it output the file .SWF?
Yes. It's Fireworks CS3 I'm talking about. It will automate the creation of really nice looking Flash slideshows with XML thrown in to boot. Won't work on my Mac for some reason though.
I am having the same problem on a PC. If I move the image folder I am accessing to just under the root of the hard drive the images show up in the preview pane. But if the image folder is several sub-directories deep they don't show up and I get the same results as Bob3741.
Also, if I try to re-open the album I "created" the program goes back to the default Fireworks CS3 directory. I can't find the album anywhere.
I hope someone has this figured out by now and can reply to this...
I am on a PC and they are all working fine for me.
Al as for the reoponing a previously created Album, you will have to remember where it was saved (that was used in the Export Options/Export Path locator.
Basically what I have done is have a separate folder on another drive called galleries dedicated to Albums created so I won't forget where I last saved them.
I have no problem remembering where the album was saved... apparently FW has problems finding it.
I think I have the problem solved - at least this one (I seem to be having another one with saving to SPRY/HTML format).
I got the clue from another post. Apparently FW doesn't like folder names with spaces and my site was buried pretty deep in the directory structure. I copied the site to a location just under the root of the drive and made sure there were no spaces in the folder names so now it only has to look for DRV:/mywebsite/images and then I export the gallery to DRV:/mywebsite/photo_gallery.
All the flash galleries seem to work fine but I'd like to look at the SPRY/HTML gallery before I make a final decision which to go with.
Al for FW defaulting to it's orignal program directory everytime I go to look for an album I simply find it annoying...
Indeed Al, I find that annoying too, sure would be nice if it remembered the last used folder...
Good catch on the folder naming convention...
As for the Spry Player Album version, if you are using IE make sure to copy/ or build the Album to your local (if present)/remote webserver. Otherwise view it from any location using FireFox.
