fldigigal – Create a Flash slide show of digital photos
The package uses the rmannot package (thus requiring an Adobe Distiller workflow) to create what the author calls “an AcroTeX Flash Digital Gallery”; that is, a Flash slide show that displays a series of digital images (PNG, JPG or GIF formats). The document author describes the digital images (path and caption) from the LaTeX source; on compilation, fldigigal writes an XML file, which Distiller embeds in the PDF. The digital images may be embedded in the PDF, or be accessed remotely (reducing filesize). Three layouts are offered: vertical thumbnails, horizontal thumbnails, or no thumbnails.
This package has become obsolete after December 2020. Since December 2020, Adobe no longer supports Flash player (SWF, FLV). This package uses a custom SWF file (fdg_ht1.swf, eg); as a result this package will no longer function in Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. The package will continue to produce PDFs as designed, but only if built using Acrobat XI (or a version Acrobat prior to 2021) and viewed in Adobe Acrobat Reader XI (or a version of Reader prior 2021).
