Adding to the page flipping effect

hi there,

i know that many of you have seen this wonderful page flipping effect as it’s been out for a few years now: and i’ve used this before and am able to manipulate it…but only to a certain extent. the problem that i am having is that if i were to use it for a photo gallery, the weight of the imported photos slow down the page flipping drastically. however, i’ve seen other sites (figures that i can’t find an example at the moment) that do have a photo gallery using the page flip method but it looks like they’re coded to use externally loaded swf files. just wondering if i can try to figure this out myself with the programming…or if somewhere there is a tutorial by someone who has already figured it out better than i could? any links or advice would be appreciated.
