I would like to show a number of photos in my newsletter mailing, but I don't want it to make my email to be really long. I would like to add a horizontally scrolling slide show. I would like it to have back and forward buttons for the reader to move images. Can I do this in Emma, or is there another program I can build this in and import it?

I know I can build this in Dreamweaver, but does Emma support Flash? Is there a better way to build it?

Hi there Kesha,

I think putting some animation into your mailing is a great idea! One point of concern, however, is that Flash is not supported in the majority of email clients. Because of that, I'd recommend using an animated gif as your slideshow. 

You can use a couple different programs to make a gif, like photoshop or http://gickr.com/. It may not have functional arrows to scroll through images, but it will still be a pretty nifty animated slideshow.

Hope that helps get you rolling! Let me know if I can assist you further.
