Flash 8: Publishing and Adding a Flash File to a Web Page

Macromedia Flash 8 – Publishing and Adding a Flash File to a Web Page

This is Part 3 of a three-part article on how to build a simple animated banner in Macromedia Flash and add it to a web page using Macromedia Dreamweaver. In this final part, you learn about file size, banner standards, how to set publish settings, how to add the banner to a Dreamweaver web page, and how to add Flash Player detection.

You must have Dreamweaver MX 2004 or Dreamweaver 8 installed to complete most of this part of the tutorial. If you don’t use Dreamweaver, you can complete the first part of this article and use the HTML that Flash outputs with a different HTML editor. However, you won’t be able to enjoy some of the benefits of using Flash and Dreamweaver together!


To complete this tutorial you will need to install the following software and files:

Macromedia Flash Basic 8

or Macromedia Flash Professional 8

Macromedia Dreamweaver MX 2004 or Dreamweaver 8
