Adobe Flash is an authoring program that allows you to add animation and interactivity to your Web pages.


Flash animations are widely used on Web pages and pop-up ads because Flash files are optimized for quick load times. You can use Flash to create:

  • Animations
  • Games
  • Advertisements
  • Integrated video

Level of Difficulty

Flash is somewhat difficult to learn and requires special software. Adding Flash animations to a Web site is most often done by professionals or experienced hobbyists. You first have to know the basics of HTML and building Web pages. In addition to that, Flash requires the use of ActionScript language. Plus, you will need to purchase, install, and learn how to use the Adobe Flash program.
