    Marvelous. I shared this with my beginning Flash class. How did you do this? All buttons? How long did it take? That Cybele can take a sweet photo.

    Hi Jo,

    The basic technique I use to build these things is described here:

    (oh look at that – I need to update the CSS on that page…)

    And there’s also a faq here:

    After reading that, you will probably have a few questions about the
    flash interface. Basically, there are no buttons, and a single movieclip
    is used to display the captions. I track the mouse movement over the stage,
    and when I decide it’s time to pop up an image, I download the image, and
    overlay it on top of the background, animating it to match-move with the original
    placement in the mosaic.
