HOWTO: create fading header images

[This comes from a tip by johanl from post http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=4046] - nice find it looks very nice!

If you would like to have a cross-fade (gentle fade in/out) the multiple header images instead of the harsh image rotation, edit js.php and change line 61 (in version 3.4.4-3.4.6) from
HTML Code:
window.onload = RotateHeaderImages;
HTML Code:
// Smooth fading code starts here
var fadeInSpeed=2500; // ms
var fadeOutSpeed=2000; // ms

function PrepareRotatingImages() {
	if (document.body){
        if(HeaderImages.length < 2) 
		imageContainer = jQuery('#imagecontainer');
        for(i=0; i < HeaderImages.length; i++) {
            imageContainer.append("<div id=\"himage" + i + "\" style=\"overflow:hidden;display:none;position:absolute;top=0;left=0;width:100%;height:<?php echo $bfa_ata["headerimage_height"]?>px\"><img src=\""+HeaderImages[i]+"\"/></div>");

function SmoothRotateHeaderImages() {
    j+=1; if(j>(HeaderImages.length-1)) j=0;
    t = setTimeout('SmoothRotateHeaderImages()', <?php echo $bfa_ata['header_image_javascript']; ?>000);

window.onload = PrepareRotatingImages;
// end smooth fading
Make sure you have set ATO->Header Image->Rotate header images with Javascript? to a number greater than '0' or this will not work.
