Have a look at this: http://livedocs.macromedia.com/flash/8/main/00001205.html.
With this technique, you can pass variables (e.g. frame numbers) to the swf from the html. You could use a serverside script, e.g. php, to generate this html with the variables from the URL for the picture. A link like
would tell the script to insert a variable into the html code that lets Flash jump to frame 42, where the picture is shown. This link can then be used as bookmark or sent to friends etc.
I looked at the link you provided and the idea makes sense, the code doesn't (at least not to me). I am more of an animator than a programmer, so most of the action script and other programming methods are like trying to read chinese backwards. Have a more simplified or laymen version/explanation?
It's even simpler: give the frames you want to link to a name, and change the Label type to "Anchor" (under the name input field). This can then be used in the URL, just like a html anchor:
I couldn't find this in the Help, but I just tried it and it seems to work.
I love you, will you marry me? -- Hehe -- Thanks, this solved my problem.
Remember me? Still interested in marrying me? hehe -- just kidding
Ok, the serious question. Remember when you told me about anchoring as a means of listing a frame as an external /html based link? Well here's my problem. If the Flash movie hasn't already been activated (ie, in Internet Explore) the anchor links don't work. Is there a way to work around this?

A soultion to this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
