What is Flash?
Flash is a program from Adobe that animators and developers can use to make presentations, animations, programs and games. The way Flash displays the graphics means that the file size is much smaller than a comparative animation delivered as an animated GIF or as a movie file.
Flash started out primarily as a 2D animation package. As time has progressed with each new release, the code that you can use has become more and more advanced. Now visitors to your site are able to experience high quality interactive presentations and Flash games by simply downloading the free Flash plug in. Most modern browsers have the Flash plug in but you may need to update your version if you want to see the latest and greatest interactive Flash content.
Macromedia took Flash to the next level and established it as the industry standard for web animation and interactive games. When Adobe bought Macromedia, they integrated it into the Adobe suite to provide designers and developers a more unified range of products.
Over the years, Flash has been given a bad reputation because many companies started adding lengthy animated introductions to their web pages. Most users do not want to be made to sit through the Flash animation every time they visit the site. Most modern design companies will give you the option of skipping the intro or even better, they will present the same intro content as an optional movie for you to view if you choose to.
As the design world has matured in its view and usage of Flash, interactive Flash websites have gained in popularity again. Most modern cinema movies have promotional websites which are entirely built in Flash or have a significant interactive Flash component.
When used correctly Flash can be a powerful marketing tool for your business both on the internet and also out in the field.
