swf Image Replacement

Posted by Rock on July 29, 2007

The team of Jon Aldinger, Mark Huot, and Dan Mall have released swfIR to bring in swf Image Replacement.

swfIR (swf Image Replacement) is here to solve some of the design limitations of the standard HTML image and its widely-accepted associated CSS values, while still supporting standards-based design concepts. Using the dark arts of JavaScript and Flash, swfIR gives you the ability to apply an assortment of visual effects to any or all images on your website. Through progressive enhancement, it looks through your page and can easily add some new flavor to standard image styling.

Using swfIR is easy by just using the natural ability to style regular images. Because of browser inconsistencies, swfIR will add a <span> with a class of swfir around the images being replaced.
