  • Flash designs and content management?

    I've only used flash for animation and simple design concepts, so am having a difficult time wrapping my head around this. I have a potential client who wants a flash interface for her images (she's a photographer), which that in itself would be fine. What she wants from there is what I'm having a hard time with ... she wants to be able to manage this site on her own, adding new photos to her galleries, update content, etc. Also, she'd like to interface with paypal or some other shopping cart for her stock images. I'm kind of stuck between two options. I'm familiar with Joomla so could easily setup a site to accomplish these things using that, but not sure how to interface it using flash. Any ideas or articles I should read or directions I should head? Thanks!!!

    2. Designer, Developer, Carpenter, Painter, Sexy... just plain sexy.
    3. One that does not like green eggs and ham. Seriously, I have very strict breakfast rules.

      There's ways, but she's asking a lot for a flash site.

      Look for XML feeds, external loading images,

      And these might help, though I've never used them.


      there was flash cart as well but it seems offline at the moment.

          Comment on A more exciting replacement for Powerpoint...?
          Funny; aversion to Powerpoint seem nearly universal among graphic designers. Frankly, the reasons for that escape me somewhat. It's really just another piece of software.

          Personally, I refuse to work with PowerPoint by feigning ignorance and bafflement as to how it works. There's no piece of mainstream software I've ever run across that I despise more than PowerPoint....

          Actually, most of the lines on the portraits are of variable width. It is more noticeable on the queen, with her stylized hair. The king though, would certainly seem to need some more work in that area,...

          How's that? Powerpoint isn't closed to "zing" any more than any other software. In fact, it's an excellent tool for its purpose.

          Not sure I understand that last question,...
