A helping hand please

Okay so I tried to do the same effect as a web site, just so that I could learn some stuff and see how well I could come close to actually doing it.

My question is can somebody tell me if I did it right or is there away I could clean it up. The flash file i posted is just something simple.

And my last question is I can’t make the preloader work before the pic comes out. I but the inside the 2 swf. files not in the main movie it self can that be the problem. If so can somebody help me out and take look at my file please.

here is the effect I tired to learn if you want to compare to mine
