The fldigigal package Dated: 2020-08-08

The fldigigal package uses the rmannot package (Adobe Distiller workflow required) to create, what I am calling, an Acro Flash Digital Gallery; that is, a Flash slide show that displays a series of digitals (PNG, JPG, GIF). The document author describes the digitals (path and caption) from the source, on compilation, fldigigal write an XML file, which Distiller embeds in the PDF. The digitals may be embedded in the PDF, or reside on the Internet (reducing filesize). Three layouts of are offered at this time: vertical thumbnails, horizontal thumbnails, or no thumbnails.

What's New 2020-08-08: This package becomes obsolete after December 2020. Following December 2020, Adobe no longer supports Flash player (SWF, FLV). This package uses a custom SWF file (fdght1.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).

Now, I simply must get back to my retirement.

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 Acro 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 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).
