Hey Chefricochet!

Go to: Control Panel > Style & Colors > Banner Image

Add the URL to your SWF (flash banner) in the "Banner URL"

then add the width and height of the flash movie (as described in the note) under the banner url.

Hey Mottie! You know I've been using photobucket! They don't support swf files! I have been at the post you made last month with the 10 editors, and trying them out!
Can you tell me which one of these uses swf files?
 PS,  the ip3 file is a Particle Illusion animation file, from the amazing program they have. Its full of pre made emitters, it was the original program they used for making the light sabers from star wars! It took some finagling to convert it to a swf!

Photobucket does support swf files, but you have to pay to get that ability.

I don't know of any online editors that support swf... not something I've looked for in the past. You'll have to search with google for a "flash maker" or "flash creator" for something like that.

As for the ip3 files, I have no experience with this file type either. I would think that the program would let you export different file types. I'd look into it but I don't have that much time, sorry.
