External slideshows. can photopost do this?

Hi there!

I have one news site made with mambo (now joomla) and have my photo gallery (coppermine) in a diferent domain.

I am loking for a solution to show pictures in my news site, the thing i am looking could make something like:

In a news item were i have a related foto album in my gallery i want to show somekind of slideshow (currently i put a normal link to the album)

maybee something like the flickr thumbs, some kind of code that gets the thumbs from the gallery and put it in some table or slideshow.
Another solution would be a popup slideshow with that gallery fotos.

Heres some examples:

Made with slideshow pro (i think) - popup slideshows

cnn - inline slideshow

Wired news - Inline thumbs with popup slideshow

BBC news - Popup slideshow also

all big news sites have some solution for this, my idea is to grab some photo galery to archive the fotos to display in the news site.

i am sure a lot of users woul like somekind of stable/reliable solution for this.

No out of the box, but you have to know some serious php/mysql/xml to make this work...

None of those look to be what I would call a slideshow
