    See this page to make the link:

    To import into Dreamweaver, select Insert > Media > Flash.

    It's worth noting that there are a lot of issues surrounding what you are doing. If you are completely new to inserting Flash objects in web pages you need to be aware that it's a minefield. I suggest doing a lot of research and learning. It's fun though so get stuck into it.

    Are you wanting to link the pictures in Flash to other pictures in Flash, pictures embedded in a webpage or straight to the picture files themselves (i.e. a .jpg file)?

    What you are trying to link to may change things slightly, but in essence what you need to do is make your picture in Flash a button (or place a button over it) which will have the link to the other picture.

    You can either use a basic Actionscript openURL command, or if you want to get a bit fancier and open the picture in a new window (which I'd recommend), use the following code:

    Put this code on the button in Flash:


    Change any values, such as the URL or yes/no values, as needed.

    Put this code in the head of the HTML page containing the Flash movie (No need to change any values in this code):

    <script language="JavaScript" type="text/JavaScript">
    function MM_openBrWindow(theURL,winName,features) { //v2.0,winName,features);

    One thing to remember, and which can cause a lot of unnecessary frustration for newbies: Any relative links must be relative to the HTML page containing the Flash movie.
