It appears that the question, "How do I create a slide show" has been asked many times in a variety of ways in this group. Reference has been made to the O'Reilly book, "Ajax on Rails". Maybe I need to read that. In any event, I don't want to get into a long discussion of the broad issues relating to how one creates a slide show. My specific interest is in determining how best to cycle through the images. Ajax would seem like one obvious methodology although I would need some help with the implementation. So, my question is: Should I just go get the O'Reilly book; or, are there other avenues that I should consider?

Thanks for any input.

Hi Doug,

Thanks. I'm really looking more towards creating a slideshow view of images that are contained in already existing photo albums contained in an already existing application. So, it's really just a different view of existing data. Obviously, the big hang up is, "How do I cycle through the images". But for that issue, it's a piece of cake.

Thanks for the input.
