The text stays smooth, the image itself flickers .
Hmm, making the text images transparent is a good idea for most of the pages. Thanks, that's a great idea. I'm not sure how to implement that on the home page which is more of a slideshow using multiple images with different text for each image.
I also find that making the slideshow go a bit faster helps to get rid of flicker. Some browsers are also smoother than others. Chrome is a lot smoother than Firefox, for example.
Yes, increasing the transition speed reduces the flicker. What would be ideal would be the ability to control the transition time and duration of each individual slide in the slideshow, not just a global setting for the entire slideshow.
Again, your help is much appreciated, Ralph.
