Adobe Photoshop Express is Alive

I used to open Adobe Photoshop for editing bitmap image for my application in Flash Lite. Sometime I was not so lucky to have better computer specifications to open both applications. So I have to close my Flash software just to open Adobe Photosop.

But now the good news is coming. Adobe Photoshop now is going online! So I think it will be easier for my to continue my work. I dont have to worry about my computer spesificatian anymore. Or just looking for another PC, because I can do it on same PC.

To run Adobe Photoshop online, you can click https://www.photoshop.com/express/index.html. They provide provides 2GB of free storage space for yous photos. Other great news is you can also edit photos from your Facebook, Google Picasa or Photobucket galleries directly with Photoshop Express.

How I Love this tools! Thank you Adobe!

Text And Fonts on Flash

Flash affords two main types of fonts : TrueType and pixel fonts. Both are easily find on Properties panel, and both are embedded in the exported SWF. Also, Flash Lite enable to specify other type of font : device fonts.

True Type : were created to fill the needed of accurately representing a printed font for onscreen viewing. Some examples of popular TrueType fonts included Arial, Helvetica, Times New Roman and Courier.

Pixel fonts : essentially a trueType font, but designed for use at a specific point size by constructing the font from a series of sequares on whole pixel coordinates.Also,it has rasterized look.

Device fonts : This option can be checked on of off in the properties panel when editing a text field. This type of font is perfect to large areas of text that might need scrolling.
