I'm talking about the XML Slideshow found here:

How it works is that it has a main movie clip that, when the user or show wants to go to the next image, the image is loaded, via loadMovie, to a movieclip.

However, I'd like to be able to load, while the user is viewing a picture, the OTHER pictures in the background...and the only way I can think of doing this is to create blank movie clips for each of those...is there an easier way to get those pictures loaded into memory?

And let's say I wanted to load up a different album from a different xml file...what happens to the previous pictures? Or is each picture deleted from memory as each loadMovie call is made to the single movieclip?
