I've been asked to create a very simple flash animation for a client. 
Basically it's just going to display a bunch of photos, which should 
fade in and out to create sort of a slideshow effect, completely 
automated, no buttons or anything.

Problem is, I know very little about Flash - I can figure my way around 
in it, and make small changes to existing flash files, but I don't 
really know where to start. Any suggestions for good, basic tutorials to 
get me started? I tried Google but just found a bunch of pre-made 
templates, not anything to actually teach me how to create the flash on 
my own.

Even if someone could just point me to a step-by-step that would show me 
how to fade one photo in to another, I might be able to figure things 
out from there.
