    Centering different size images in movieclip

    photex22
      Hi,

      I'm trying to center different size images in a movieclip named "picture". The images load fine but they are not centered. Flash's registration is very limited when it comes to setting this. All the images are different sizes. I may get one to load correctly but when another image loads of a different size the images is no longer centered. I need all images to load in the center of the clip no matter what the images size is. Here is the code that I'm using:

      stop();

      function loadXML(loaded) {
      if (loaded) {
      xmlNode = this.firstChild;
      image = [];
      description = [];
      total = xmlNode.childNodes.length;
      for (i=0; i<total; i++) {
      image = xmlNode.childNodes.childNodes[0].firstChild.nodeValue;
      description = xmlNode.childNodes.childNodes[1].firstChild.nodeValue;
      }
      firstImage();
      } else {
      content = "file not loaded!";
      }
      }
      xmlData = new XML();
      xmlData.ignoreWhite = true;
      xmlData.onLoad = loadXML;
      xmlData.load("images-webbanner.xml");
      /////////////////////////////////////
      listen = new Object();
      listen.onKeyDown = function() {
      if (Key.getCode() == Key.LEFT) {
      prevImage();
      } else if (Key.getCode() == Key.RIGHT) {
      nextImage();
      }
      };
      Key.addListener(listen);
      previous_btn.onRelease = function() {
      prevImage();
      };
      next_btn.onRelease = function() {
      nextImage();
      };
      /////////////////////////////////////
      p = 0;
      this.onEnterFrame = function() {

      filesize = picture.getBytesTotal();
      loaded = picture.getBytesLoaded();
      preloader._visible = true;
      if (loaded != filesize) {

      preloader.preload_bar._xscale = 100*loaded/filesize;

      } else {

      preloader._visible = false;
      if (picture._alpha<100) {

      picture._alpha += 10;

      }

      }

      };


      function nextImage() {
      if (p<(total-1)) {
      p++;
      if (loaded == filesize) {
      picture._alpha = 0;
      picture.loadMovie(image[p], 1);
      desc_txt.text = description[p];
      picture_num();
      }
      }
      }
      function prevImage() {
      if (p>0) {
      p--;
      picture._alpha = 0;
      picture.loadMovie(image[p], 1);
      desc_txt.text = description[p];
      picture_num();
      }
      }
      function firstImage() {
      if (loaded == filesize) {
      picture._alpha = 0;
      picture.loadMovie(image[0], 1);
      desc_txt.text = description[0];
      picture_num();
      }
      }
      function picture_num() {
      current_pos = p+1;
      pos_txt.text = current_pos+" / "+total;
      }
