Pretty cool use of Flash technology. Funny as well. Good times.
Pretty cool flash ad that was up on the Fandango website consisting of a leaderboard and a 300x250 on the side. There’s also a transparent overlay between the two for sure to have the animation looking like how it is. Nice implementation. Kudos to the creative team.
Here it is.

Dopeness. SUMO Paint is a free image editing software that gives you the opportunity to create, edit and comment images online with powerful tools and layer support. I tried it for a quick bit, and I barely noticed any lag using it; then again, I didn’t have so much layers yet.
Being that its a Flash-based application/tool, that’s a whole lot of user-support and market share. That’s remarkable as Designers and non-Designers a like can use it whether they’re away from their workstations or just don’t have Photoshop or applications like it at their disposal. Some of the featured I’m digging are: Shape Trails, Symmetry Tool, and it’s support for Cooliris’ 3D Gallery (formerly PixelLens).
Anyways, go check it out and let your mind free. You may access the application directly via sumopaint.com/app/
Since writing about the Adobe CS4 live web broadcast a couple of days ago, I was fortunate enough to finally view it. Enjoy!
You may view the video at a higher resolution via http://tv.adobe.com/#vi+f1556v1715. You may also find other related videos on that page with regards to CS4. The ones I am interested in seeing would probably be the following:
- Photoshop CS4 Features Tour
- Photoshop CS4 Extended Features Tour
- Illustrator CS4 Features Tour
- Flash CS4 Features Tour
All I can say is that this is going to be one very nice Suite, and should be fun to play/work with.
