Well done!
Code:
 
Can you build flash sites in flash?
Yep!
Its always a good thing that Flash ends up on the resume/CV but you can get by without it. To advertise yourself as a flash developer then you need to be really good

bmp's uses pixels which build the image where vectors are mathimatical points like co-ords and then filled with colour.

ok

a photo (bmp, jpg, gif) image is made up of pixels (small blocks of colour)
With a detailed image of a high quality this information can be massive

Vectors however dont use pixels. They define images using mathimatical points and are made up of lines and curves to define areas of colour which is why they look cartoon like but are really small in size

the first example is a jpg. I have zoomed in on the wheel in order to see the pixels
the second example is a vector

flash isnt easy to learn either. i can do simple tweening and zoom effects etc, but i really dont kno anything about actionscripting.
Good flash developers dont even develop in flash, they use Flex as flash now adays is all actionscripting, which is a code itself.
I dont kno anyone who is a master of all 3 (html[xhtml+css+javascript], flash[actionscripting], design[photoshop+illustrator etc).. good to build your skill base up in one particular area first.
i myself would like to think i can do all three, but i am a interface developer... well thats wats on my card at work.

well I think really you can learn all of those online and master them, but I dont know about flash. Photoshop you can use tuts, but my friend is really good at it and he learned just by mucking around with it and his under 14. The website stuff, well there are so many tuts on them. Thats why I got my friends to do the site, his good at photoshop, and Im ok with html, website etc. all i need now is a flash person lol then ultimate succsess.

you should never rely on others to fill the gaps in your skillset. Not if you are want to get into the market as a career. How many job adverts have you seen with...

Developer wanted, must have HTML, FLASH, Photoshop Or know some mates that do.

You are probably young enough to absorb all these skills and more with the option to focus on where in the industry you want to concentrate, wether that be design or coding or if your lucky, both

if you need some flash work done or some photoshop stuff then try to do this yourself until you get the result your after.

If your not looking to take this further and earn a living from it and you think of this stuff as a hobby then forget everything i said above and remember this...

i can do any of the above so call me on...
