    Hi I was wondering if someone can help me

    I didnt know if I should post this here but since it said starting your design. I thought it would be alright. Im a graphic designer. Mostly for print. I am really picky, for our logo it got so out of hand that i actually hired someone to do it and i gave up. i dont want to do that. I want to try harder. I do logos, brouchures, cd cases. I want to design my ownwebsite. the problem is that i took 2 classes. flash and dreamweaver. I dont know if photoshop slicing counts a a third. I seen this website and absolutely loved it. it has the fading in the backround and flickering on the text. would that be for dreamweave or flash. COuld some one help me or point me to any good tutorials for this kind of stuff. This is the website that i am talking about so you can get an idea, thank you. I appreciate it in advance, ANdy. i couldnt put the link up but here is the website if you want to see and get an idea of what im talking about

    It's Flash.

    Be aware that while Flash has it's place and can enhance a site - not everyone can see it and not everyone has the plugin so you should always ensure that when you use Flash it's an enhancement and that the site is fine without it just in case.

    If you're just starting you should also ensure that you don't rely on a WYSIWYG editor like Dreamweaver to do everything for you. You should ensure that you understand HTML and CSS so that you can have more control over the site to ensure accessibility and better cross-browser functionality.

    Furthermore, flash on sites can't be indexed by crawlers and any content contained inside does nothing for your SER.

    Great site, though I would use flash with caution. Also I personally don't use Dreamweaver as I like to get my hands dirty tweaking the HTML code.
