How Adobe is advertising Flash Catalyst is that you do not need to know programming. I keep running across problems where the only solution it to have to go into the code and edit it. So my impression is that simple websites can be designed using Flash Catalyst or it can be used to quickly protype more complex interfaces which then need to be completed in the code section.
Yes, you can design an entire website using Flash Catalyst. That is what I am planning on doing (with some html coding in addition to it) with my website. You would need to design it initially in either Photoshop or Illustrator.
Hope this helps.
Righto. I knew I would need Photoshop/Illustrator to design the actual graphics for the page, I just wanted to make sure that I didn't need anything else.
Thanks for the help, mate. Maybe now I can put together a nice looking, simple website to display my work.
This tutorial may help you in setting up a photo gallery for your work. You may want to have some flash pages and some non-flash pages, but that is up to you. You may also want to use some type of other slideshow generator to show your work. Just some advice. :-)
Something simple you can do with Flash Catalyst, though there are limitations without knowing programming. Best of luck in your work!
