How do I tell setInterval to start calculating the time after the image is being fully loaded? (That's because some of my images take about 3 seconds to load)
var IntervalID = setInterval(myShow, 10000);
You need to have a listener for the loading operation. To have a listener for a loader you need to use the MovieClipLoader class. Look up MovieClipLoader.addListener in the help documents for example code.
