Flash is an interactive, dynamic Media. Flash Player is the software that allows your browser to play the files. If you have ever gone to a site and there is sound and things are moving, chances are it is probably flash.

You're right. Macromedia is such an awsome company, their plugin magically works from anywhere.

'Course, I can't expect any low-level web surfer or non-web-designer to understand the power of Flash.

To be more specific, Flash technology is a type of dynamic animation compression, which operates from the browser similarly to audio files, avi's, and other plug-in run web technologies. Just like you have to have the QuickTime plugin to watch quicktime movies, the same goes for Flash content.

Screw Photoshop. Filthy Adobe beaurocratic stiffs with their stuffy, dinosaur software.

Flash+Fireworks+Dreamweaver, with Corel, baby, yeah!
