Using XML file to let the Flash slideshow loading external images is a good way to show photo gallery online. If you embed all photo files in a single SWF file, the flash SWF file will be very large and not suitable for presenting on your website.
While using XML, the Slideshow Flash can stream the photos one by one, and the end user or vistors of your website will get better experience while loading your webpage.
