Did You Know?

Whether you've created artwork from scratch inside Flash or brought it in from another program, chances are good you will want to modify the presentation at some level. Luckily, Flash has enough flexibility and options to let your creative comments develop without going back to another software application.

In fact, Flash has some surprising versatility, not just in its tool sets, but also in terms of customizing the environment to meet your own personal configuration.

On the surface, some of these options might seem a bit extraneous, and might even instigate you to gloss over the pending sections. That would be a mistake. Each successive version of Flash comes with just a bit more power and flexibility, inching you closer to a software solution that covers your needs universally. Advanced developers might scoff at the notion, but the rest of us will no doubt spend a great deal of time inside the Flash environment, taking advantage of an ever-evolving tool set.
