Using this thoroughly explained, detailed flash lesson, I will explain to you how to create spring flash banner. You don't have to use action script code to make this lesson. This banner you can use for some presentation and animation. Using this lesson, you will also learn how to import any photo into a flash stage, how to aligned it with the background, how to convert it into a Movie Clip Symbol, how to animate it, apply flash filters on it and much much more.
First, save two photos below that we will use for this lesson!
Create a new flash document. Press Ctrl+J key on the keyboard (Document Properties) and set the width of your document to 400 pixels and the height to 250 pixels. Select any color as background color. Set your Flash movie's frame rate to 38 and click ok.
Call the current layer spring 1. Double-click on its default name (Layer 1) to change it. Press Enter once you have typed in the new name!
Choose File > Import > Import to Library and import two spring photos that you just saved in step 1.
Select the Selection Tool (V) and using the drag and drop technique, move the first photo from the Library on the stage!
While the photo is still selected, go to the Align Panel (Ctrl+K) and do the following:
1. Make sure that the Align/Distribute to Stage button is turned on,
2. Click on the Align horizontal center button and
3. Click the Align vertical center button.
While the photo is still selected, hit F8 key (Convert to Symbol) to convert it into a Movie Clip Symbol.

Create a new layer above the layer spring 1 and name it spring 2.
Click on frame 75 of layer spring 2 and hit F6 key.
While you're still on frame 75, move the second spring photo from the flash library on the flash stage.
While the photo is still selected, repeat steps 6 and 7.
Click on frame 90, 140 and 155.
While you're still on frame 155, repeat step 8. Do this also for frame 75.
While you're still on frame 75, select the Selection Tool (V) and click once on the photo to select it. Then, go to the Properties Panel (Ctrl+F3) below the stage. On the right, you will see the Color menu. Select Alpha in it and put it down to 0%. Repeat this step also for frame 155,80 and 1
