1. Create a new document with the size of your choice, I'm using 929x292px. Create a new layer and fill it with the colour of your choice. Next get the rectangle tool and draw a white rectangle and add the blending options below. 2. Create another rectangle and make it smaller then the previous shape. Fill it with the colour #313131. Then duplicate the layers to make 2 more sets, put them in a folder of their own so it's easier to edit if needed. While on the folder press ctrl+t to rotate each image like below. 3. Now get one of your work, go to the very top rectangle shape, while holding down the ctrl key click on the square shape on the rectangle layer to highlight the shape, next go to your image and copy and paste the image so it fits with the shape. I've done a light colour overlay with the first image, and copy and pasted the work again and placed it smaller on the slideshow design. You can present your work anyway you like on your slideshow. 4. After you have gotten your work onto the slideshow, create a new folder and call it arrows. get the circle tool, hold down the shift key to make a perfectly round shape. Go into blending options and put in the following settings: 5. Go custom shape tool and pick the arrow shape. draw a white arrow on each of the buttons. 6. Now get the design ready for Flash. Remove the eye icons on all the layer except for the background layer. Save the layer in a new folder called images in PNG format. 7. Remove visibility from all layers except from the buttons. Get the size of the button and create a new canvas, drag the button layers onto the canvas and save in PNG format so the background in invisible. 8. Next remove visibility to every layer except for your work, save each of them in png format again.
