Another draft of Flash

This is what I want my English portfolio review people to see on Thursday. You can check it out too...
"Catholicism and Seton Hill" (view the file)

Simply beautiful, Amanda. My favorite slide is the "Common good for all" because of the amazing photo of the Mazel cast and the Holocaust survivors. Maybe I'm a bit biased because that photo appeared in my center spread. =) Outstanding work, my friend. I think you definitely achieved the effect you were going for with the hidden buttons.

Thanks, Stormy. When I get the buttons working with the score, it will all come together. I cited it in my portfolio, but I want to make clear that this is a work in progress. As it is, though, it is a decent representation of what I strived to achieve.

Oooh! I love the layout and design. The music absolutely rocks the presentation!

Glad to see you're using the stock.xchng (isn't it the greatest?), that's where I get most of the graphics for my design projects.

Anyway, hope you had a great time at Christmas on the Hill! I'll see you tomorrow for the party.

A nice Flash presentation, but I have some suggestions.

First, all the secret buttons should flash I believe. I spent a little too much time trying to find them and between finding the buttons and reading the articles it is time consuming. I think you can make us informed readers without testing our patience. The secret button idea is nice, but it needs to be like "oh, what is that gently blinking thing! I'm so clever for finding it." People like feeling clever, not just moving the mouse over an area looking for something. that may not be worth looking for. But a secret blinking button? That's always worth pressing.

Another suggestion is on the slide "The dignity of Work" The secret button is the same color as the text in the scroll bar. It threw me off. I suggest switching it to another color.

Some of the buttons still don't work right, but I am guessing you will fix all those for the final project. Good Luck Amanda.

I did fix some of the things you talked about, particularly the buttons, but you've definitely given me some more to think about. Thank you for the input!
