Matt,

I believe, from someone's comments about the Generator presentation at
FF2K, that you can use Generator offline to generate a template and
batch process the creation of swf's from jpg's, so you might want to
look into that as a possibility. Also, Till Steinmetz posted a way of
doing this with swift generator (Flash Q&A archive below; search on
batch convert). You could do that and then use any of the standard
database options with Flash without the additional expense of Generator
hosting (but it wouldn't be as convenient when you wanted to add
entries, since you'd have to do the offline convert first, then upload
the new swf, etc)
