In the 1990¢\'s, most websites were simply made up of static graphics, text and sometimes simple animations (called animated Gifs) which made many sites nothing more than glorified brochures and text heavy resources. With the birth of the New Media industry, new tools were developed to make the internet a much more interactive and entertaining medium one of these tools was Macromedia Flash. Flash enabled website designers and developers to create complex animations, incorporate decent quality sound and develop unique and experimental interfaces for their online projects. Using vector graphics and special compression techniques, Flash allows websites to show high quality graphics, play great sound and add extra dimensions of interactivity without choking up bandwidth. This has made Flash one of today\'s most popular website development and design tools.

Flash uses an internet friendly technology called streaming. Streaming enables information to be displayed as it is downloading, rather than only displaying once downloading has completed. This enables a well designed Flash project to seem to load instantly or very quickly while in fact it is downloading information as the user views it.

A good example of this technology is streaming audio where you can listen to music while it is downloading across the internet instead of waiting for it to completely download.

How Flash works

For Flash to work on a website, the person visiting the website needs to have a plug-in installed. This plug-in enables the browser to identify and then display Flash content. Although the plug-in is a separate program, recent statistics show that around 95% of internet users already have the Flash plug-in installed. Flash is heavily supported by the I.T. industry and therefore comes installed with most windows based PC\'s and some Mac computers. In later lessons, we will show you how to make your website detect if the visitor has the plug-in installed and if they don\'t, how to direct them to the macromedia site to install it.
