When it comes to putting an online portfolio together, it's important to stand out from the crowd. Flash certainly offers many opportunities for innovation and adding that all-important 'wow' factor to your online presence.
However, don't panic if your Flash skills are limited - you don't need to be a Flash pro to produce visually interesting transitions and environments for your folio work.
In this project we look at how to create a Flash interface that has four rooms; we begin by creating a nifty navigation device so you can move around from rooms one to four. On arrival in rooms two to four, your much-prized work will be presented on screen using one of the default Flash filter effects: Gradient Bevel, Blur, Glow and Drop Shadow. Once mastered, you can adapt and combine these techniques and use them to add real pizzazz to your own work.
