PS: if i can ask you a guide to where to start learning flash (useful stuff for the business) and actionscript, would you suggest tutorials where i can learn it? (like i said i am a newbie)
you're welcome. and thanks for the offer.
i'm not sure of the easiest or most efficient way to learn flash. i know i learned it by experimenting with it when i had nothing better to do. then having projects to complete that forced me to solve problems using flash. then once i gained a basic competency level i started learning by trying to solve other peoples problems on this forum. and finally, after a few years i could understand the flash help documents and use them to gain information. this was particularly helpful when learning actionscript 3.
if you learn best using tutorials, there are many basic as1 and as2 tutorials at flashkit.com.
