Chapter 6. Publishing

IN THIS CHAPTER

When all your work is finished, you still aren't quite done. The Flash authoring environment is created within a file with an extension of .fla. When you save your work, your entire Flash project is included in that FLA file. The problem is that if you don't publish your work, no one can view it unless they also own Flash. This is also impractical because then anyone with Flash will be able to open your project and use your graphics, library items, or any other authored asset. What's more, anyone without Flash would never be able to see your work. Luckily, the developers at Macromedia have stepped in to save the day with publishing. In Flash, publishing is easier and more versatile than most other authoring environments. Publishing in Flash also allows you to show your project to millions of online users while giving you the security of knowing your work is protected.
