Managing the documents and assets

In the output folder, you will see several files and folders. These are the data source and assets that keep the flash slideshow play properly when it's embedded into website. The slides folder has the images which have their respective thumbnails included in the thumbs folder. The details of these images are listed in the XML document.

It's suggested that you keep the HTML document with all these assets in the same file folder, and do not rename those three file folders (the "res", "slides", and "thumbs", respectively), or you might have to make loads of changes to the XML and HTML documents. Nonetheless, you can re-name the file folder that contains these documents and assets.
