After publish, Ultraslideshow Flash Gallery Maker will automatically generate an output folder which includes xml+html+swf files and some other assets. If you want to embed those photo slideshow into your personal websites, the first thing you should do is to upload those generated files onto your website hosting. Then open up the generated html file and copy the Html code looking like the following one:

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,19,0" width="100%" height="100%">
<param name="movie" value="camping.swf?xml_path=slides.xml" />;
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" />
<embed src="camping.swf?xml_path=slides.xml"; quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="100%" height="100%" allowFullScreen="true"></embed>
</object>

Next, find the existing html page or newly-made html file and open them in html editor, and paste the copied html code into the desired place of those html pages where you want to display your photo flash slideshow and modify the red-marked html code according to the uploaded file path.

If you have successfully set the right file path, you are able to browse your photo slideshow embeded in your webpage in your browsers. It is so wonderful and easy. Let's begin your journey.
