PHOTOSHOP

Photoshop is the leading digital image editing application for the Internet, print, and other new media disciplines. It is embraced by millions of graphic artists, print designers, visual communicators, and regular people. It’s likely that nearly every picture you’ve seen (such as posters, book covers, magazine pictures, and brochures) has either been created or edited by Photoshop. 

FLASH ANIMATION

Flash is vector animation software, which facilitates multimedia operation and brings life to Internet browsing. The software, launched as Adobe Flash in 1996, has emerged as the most popular software for web-based animation. The compatibility factor of Flash and HTML is questionable. This is because the former is vector based. Programming related to operations like selecting text, scrolling, right-clicking etc are fashioned in a completely different system and is no way similar to HTML Web Pages.

 

Advocates of Flash promote the software over HTML for the following reasons:

  • Flash movies load faster and save on download time because it is vector based.
  • Flash intelligently ‘caches’ movies so they don’t have to be reloaded.
  • Flash gives the viewers a more responsive ‘rich-client’ like experience.
