Complex transition effect

I searched for the effect I want to create on many sites but couldn't find it.
I'm new to Flash so maybe somebody could help.

So, what I want to do is a fade transition between two jpg images: while the first fades to white (or "nothing"), in the same time the next images becomes
gradually visible, (fades in), during an interval of let's say 3 seconds.

BUT, I don't want the fadings to be linear. I want each of the two fading effects to have a water ripple effect during the fading time.
Would this kind of transition be possible to be done..?

Also, is it possible that I don't effectively import the jpg files into the library, but point to them as external files, through a link?

for the ripple effect...i know flash 8 has finally brought in the transitions object and there are some neat, prefab, ones in there - not sure about the ripple...you could however, get creative will layering a ripple version of you jpeg over the original and changing the alpha of each to mimic such an effect.....

when you fade from and to nothing, you are working wit the alpha property of a movie clip (the movieclip contains your jpeg)....

as for external source for jpegs....yes, this can be done....

loadMovie("image1.jpg", logo_mc); //loads image1.jpg into the movieclip, already on stage, called logo_mc
