do a google search for a javascript slideshow (that you can adjust the timing for) and do it that way (making your text boxes as jpgs) You'd just need to edit the javascript code (easy; I know; I've done it and I'm no coder) and it will have the same effect.

You could transfer pics into windows movie maker (v.easy to use); make a movie and place movie in web page to run automatically.

Try this.....

Open a new flash file and import each pic you want into the library. Drag each pic to the stage in turn and then click / right click / convert to symbol(movie clip)- any name is ok and this will put it in the library as a small clip. Remove the pic from the stage.

On the main timeline just click on first frame and then drag the first movie clip required to the stage and position as required. Add new keyframes at lets say 50 frame intervals and just click on the symbol to select it / swap button (bottom left) to change the movie clip to the next needed.

Test movie and you should have a result. You can add layers and introduce fading etc if needed.

Hope this helps.
