Adding Falling Snow to Your Web Page


Get a flash photo gallery with falling snow effect

Adding the Snow Effect to your page.

First you need a snowflake or any image that you would like to appear falling on your page. Next , add the following javascript code to the body of your page. Please to do not hotlink to our snow.gif. If you need a snowflake make your own at lookandfeel.com. You can view some pretty cool snow flakes there. (Gina made one that resembled the cartoon character, Angelica on Rugrats.) Try it out and see what you can do.

View our flash photo gallery with falling snow and a mp3 player.
