    If you are silkscreening this, taking it into Photoshop isn't a very good idea. When designing T-shirts for silk screening you have to keep the color separations in mind. One color is easy from Photoshop....

    I don't particularly like any of those birds, it's not really the style I wanted.

    I'll try...

  • Flash for web design, a good idea.....

    I am in the process of designing a website for which I need to use Flash. Do you think it would be a good idea to design it completely in Flash?

    Depends on your design and the purpose of the site. If you can avoid it, I would recommend it.

        I've done several websites in flash, but never "completely" in flash. It wouldn't be very dynamic without CSS, PHP, JS, and XML.

          You can send back data in form of XML to flash from PHP, ASP, etc. So it is possible to create a fully dynamic site in flash.

            google and others will never be able to see your content. If that matters build your site in html and have embedded flash elements

              Not entirely true, but to get proper indexing I would stick with using Flash for individual elements as and when required.

              Also check out jQuery, you can do a lot very simply with AJAX and the provided effects nowadays, whereas before they could only be done in Flash.
