Hello, Is there a way to make an object fade in and fade out. I am new to flash and though this may be very easy I still have no idea how to do it. Thanks.

Yes there is. Tweening.
Now let me jog the memory on how to do this.

make your object, this can be text an image whatever.
convert it to a symbol.
on the timeline insert a keyframe on the lenght you want the fade (say 20 for the sake of this.)
Now right click on the first keyframe and select 'create motion tweening'.
This will place an arrow from the first keyframe to the last keyframe.
Now click on your object on the stage and then go to the properties panel.
In the color option click the dropdown and select Alpha. To fade in set the percentage to 0% and fade out set to 100%.
Then click the last keyframe and do the same with the oppersite percehage level from the first keyframe.
