Unlike Photoshop or Illustrator, Flash is an umbrella technology that allows users to include as many creative elements as they want into a particular file. This includes vector images and artwork, sound and photos.
One example is the creation of a slideshow that can be output to an SWF file. You can use flash technology to create a mock video effect. If you use Flash 8 and a sequence of photographs in which each image is slightly different than the previous one, you can make the images appear like the camera is rolling.
To create such an effect, make sure all your images are the same dimensions and are saved at 72 dpi. Image formats can include GIF, JPEG, PICT, PNG, Photoshop and TIFF.
