iStockphoto Tip: If you work in the design world, you know that the separate fields of photography, graphic design, animation, sound effects and movies are beginning to blur together. In order to get someone's attention these days, a superb photo or a totally unique vector image may simply not be enough. If you work in this emerging world of creative media, you will want to familiarize yourself with flash files. Stock photo companies, like istockphoto.com, are quickly moving into the flash market and are actively soliciting such work for their online collections. Design projects created in programs, like Adobe Flash and output in SWF file format, are a new medium for stock distributors. So, anyone in the ever-expanding field of digital media -- in photography, vector art, animation, motion graphics, video or sound -- should learn about flash creation and output.
