Faster Work and More Creativity Options with Integration to Adobe’s Creativity Suite

By Pablo Conde Ferrer

On Friday, June 13, 2014

Old-time Flash users will appreciate CS3 and how they can save time using it while they work. Because of its integration that has been improved, it can now seamlessly work alongside other products from Adobe. Layers from Illustrator and Photoshop files can now be imported. Converting and naming a layer each at a time is now a thing of the past. What I find more interesting is that I can now customize the interface in which I work on. It suits my preferences, in short.

Flash now has added tools including the Pen based on the Illustrator tool of the same name, and Shape Primitives which is used to alter shapes. New and added creative options are also featured. The best thing though is that CS3 is way faster compared to its predecessor CS2.

Not everything is smooth sailing though. There are still a few setbacks. I find it hard to zoom in the stage center and control brush strokes.


  • Makes work faster with its integration with other products from Adobe
  • New and added tools provides more options for creativity


  • Too complex to understand for beginners

A Much Improved Program with Better Performance and Wide-Range Capabilities

Adobe is one of the top developers that dominates the world of web design. I think in every field that they are in, Adobe always make a good impression to its consumers. In this case, Adobe Flash CS3 is a vector software that makes multimedia on flash format. However, creating web pages, videos and interactive games in this software is quite complex especially for beginners.

Flash CS3 has many potent features as well as its suitable integration within the loaded Creative Suite that make this software an appealing and sensible tool. I tried to explore this software and I found out that the interface is now more customizable than the prior versions. In addition, Flash CS3 brings in the time-saving capacity of importing the layers of both Illustrator and Photoshop files.

Flash CS3 is not that perfect particularly when it comes to several fine details. Nonetheless, this software has enhanced its speed and incorporates other CS3 apps. Plus, it now also works on Intel-base Macs.


  • It has a better performance
  • Enable to import Photoshop and Illustrator files


  • It is quite confusing to learn

A Professional and Convenient Vector Tool Software for Designing Web Pages

By Isay Almenanza

On Thursday, June 5, 2014

Flash is one of the most significant media formats that have ever been developed. I think it is the best animation standard on the web. However, Flash has been acquired by Adobe years ago and finally it is now livelier and fully operational under its new company banner. Unlike its prior releases, Flash now offers you numerous enhancements, but also has some meaningless upgrades.

Once I got this program, I immediately explored it, and I found out that the interface of this software is now more customizable. I can now select where to dock my timeline and other panels. However, I do not find its interface intuitive at all particularly if you are new with this program. In this release, I like how Adobe incorporates both Photoshop and Illustrator files.

All in all, Adobe Flash CS3 is the title holder of specialized vector software for web, but making interactive games, videos and web pages in this software is not that easy. However, once you master this program I am sure it will be all worth it.


  • It has a modified user interface
  • Ability to import Photoshop and Illustrator files


  • The interface is not very intuitive

Adobe Flash CS3 is design software which improves the performance of graphics and web content.

Adobe Flash CS3 is used to create interactive content for websites as well as enrich games whether they are destined for PC, mobile phones or portable devices. The application will help you create your own Flash projects, such as animations, presentations or questionnaires. Besides that, it will enable you to add a high quality touch to your websites and incorporate elements like interactive menus.

This software is part of the Adobe Creative Suite, a package which includes different tools focused on web content. For that reason, you can integrate any application of this family into your Flash project.

What it offers

It has a complete editor which lets the user fully customize projects. For instance, it includes a huge variety of components which you can add to your work, such as text, buttons, figures or lines as well as choose any color in the palette.

Besides that, it comes with filters, effects and layers with which you can add multiple elements to your creation, and place them in order.

This application supports vector graphics, video and sound. Adobe Flash CS3 is based on ActionScript 3.0 language, which lends a high flexibility to developing Flash content.

In addition, this tool comes with the Adobe Flash Video Encoder, a player which allows you to visualize your project once you have finished it.

Other compatible programs

If you are interested in creating interactive content for either a website or any application, we can also recommend some other options. For example, Adobe Dreamweaver CS3 is a web design and programming software which is used to create websites and is integrated with JavaScript.

You can also try Adobe Fireworks CS3, a utility specialized in the creation of vector graphics and offers integration with the rest of Adobe’s products.
