Please use this thread for any and all help you might need with any design other than photoshop/illustrator. If you have a question, please scan through this thread to see if your question has been answered before.

If you have a cool tip or tutorial for anything, post it here as well!

If you are requesting help, please provide the software version and if you are on a mac or a pc. (this helps with discribing short cuts)

Please do not use this thread for asking for advice on a project or anything like that.

If you have a question about software, hardware, or a tip how to use a program like Flash, Dreamweaver, InDesign, AfterEffects, etc, post it here. If you have a question on setting up a file for production, you can post it here but its usually best to call the production facility.

Could a mod please pin this thread?

You're probably getting grey, black and white colours because you opened the GIF or JPG, etc. file. Try doing Edit -> Paste From -> and select your file. Now the colours should work. I hope.. :grin:

Does anyone know of any decent Flash tutorial sites for beginers? I've just procured myself Flash MX 2004, but really cannot figure anything out. I want to try and Google tutorials, but trust the people of Creamerland better with their suggestions. Any help=greatly appreciated.

I learned alot from 3 places:

One was buying a book called "Hands On Training: Flash MX" It basically takes you from teh basics all the way to a fully functional website.

For some more advanced things and some beginer things, www.flashkit.com is an excellent resource.

There is one more place, but the name escapes me but I have it bookmarked at work. I'll try to post that tomorrow.

I knew someone would pull through! Thanks, Pat! You're a great man. I will definately try to find that book, and I'm already surfing through flashkit! Props, dawg.

I am a new member here and I know how to post the link to a concept in my photobucket album but I was wondering how to make the image show directly on the page with the post. How do I make the picture show up directly in the post? I have tried copying and pasting from photobucket but it doesn't work. Can anyone help me out here?

sorry i've asked this before, How do I get my bmp images onto photobucket?

it was through some program that turned any photo/pic (.bmp) into any compatible save type.

there was a program someone introduced to me like six months ago (but I had to completely strip my computer so now I don't have it)
