Flash graphics within your site

Flash graphics can be an attractive feature of your site, and at one point all of the 'best' sites were Flash based.

However, Flash has the disadvantage that Apple doesn't recognise Flash items and you cannot afford to alienate a whole section of potential visitors to your site.

They can also take a long time to load and take up a large amount of energy. This is particularly a problem on mobile devices.

However, they are fun!

Lynda devised a wealth of Flash based teaching aids which were very well received on the Times Educational Site.

If you do not have the time or inclination to do one yourself you can send a graphic to us and a recorded message and we could do it for you.

It was later replaced by a less graphical, but more efficient delivery of his music. People are reluctant to wait for things to load - especially when they are viewing your site on their cell phones!

Cost of production

The cost of production of a Flash swf depends on its complexity. You would be paying for the time it took to make it. You would have to contact us, explain exactly what you wanted it to do and we would give you a quote - or say that we could not do it!
