(Blimey - two posts in one day!)
In my current tentative forays into web design, I have come across a variety of progs that I am not sure whether I should learn or not. The question is - should I dedicate valuable time to learning Flash?

To Flash or not to Flash

I think it depends totally on whether you feel like it or not.

If you are looking to design webs professionally then it is a definite must. But if you are only dipping your fingers into web design then you can take a skip on it.

But a good way to begin learning would be to purchase or try out Swish 2.0 . This program designs flash animations the same way as Flash itself, but this is much simpler and MUCH cheaper.

You can read more about Swish here.

To Flash or not to Flash

hi ! i must agree with Envinyatar u can use swishmax for making flash banners and intros. is fast easy and cheap. if u want to make aplications then u must learn flash. if not i think swishmax is enough. it has some support for php interaction and from there u can make anything. learn php and mysql a lot more useful. best of luck, Ionut Popa

To Flash or not to Flash

Personally, I really only use flash for cartoon pictures. I find it much easier than using Photoshop or PSP.
