This should be quite simple to build once you understand the basics.
It involvles creating symbols of each photo then using alpha fades.

Simple fade tutorial:


Use the above technique using photos, do each photo on a new layer and
indent them so as one fades out one fades in etc. You have to repeat
the first image at the end so your loop will work correctly.

good luck
