5.  Insert a positioned image and use the image called scenic1-frame.gif.  This as you see, is merely a frame with a transparent middle section, sized down here to save space.

6.  Now insert another positioned image and this time choose the one that is called scenic1-sm.jpg.  This is the main image.  You can see that this image is 20 pixels smaller than the frame above when you look at the sizes of each.  You might think why not just make the frame part of the image right?  Well you can do that, but there is a reason for not doing it here.  The birds and the boat will move out of the picture, if the frame is part of the main image these moving objects will get on front of them.  We want them to go behind the frame instead.  The first image shows a cut-down version of the main image you are using.  The second image depicts the moving object going behind the frame.

7.    Now we are going to insert another positioned container which will hold the moving objects.  This container goes all the way over at the left margin just like the first one did.  Horizontal is centered at 0 with a specified size of 524.  Vertical layout is 40 pixels from the top with a specified size of 389.  If you look at your positioned main image you might notice that this is the exact size of your main image.  This way when you go to use your own image you will know what size to make it.

8.  Now we are going to insert four positioned scrolls.  Go ahead and insert them now please.  For the first one we will use the graphic called clouds21.gif.  For the second one we will use a graphic named clouds1.gif.  For the third one we will use the graphic called 3seagulls.gif and for the fourth one we will use the graphic sailboat1.gif.

11.  All that is left now is to add a ticker, the sound and a loading message.  If you need help with these three items, please go back to lesson #1 for detailed instructions.

That's it!  You should now have a nice 'moving picture image'.  Hope you enjoyed it and that it was easy enough for everyone!
