OpenType font display problems in Flash Professional

I recently came across an usual and very issue frustrating issue in Flash, whereby a number of OpenType fonts were not displaying at all – both on the stage and when publishing a .swf file. This included Gotham, Interstate, Helvetica and Zapfino OpenType fonts.
Strangely, these fonts would appear when typing in a newly created text box but as soon as the text box was de-selected, the text vanished and the containing text box could not be re-selected.flash This was when using standard ‘classic text’, static text type. In addition, the font looked fine in the drop down preview box within Flash and in various other software packages including Photoshop and the issue affected both CS5.5 and CS4 versions I was using.
After various Google searches, head-scratching and trial and error, the following steps fixed the font display issue I was experiencing in Flash:
  • Create a new Flash Action Script 3.0 document
  • Create a new text box (classic, static text) and type a few characters using a font that vanishes
  • Change text box type from ‘Classic Text’ to ‘TLF Text’
  • In Publish Settings, select Flash Player 9 and OK when the pop-up warning box about TLF support appears
  • The text box should have automatically converted back to classic text and the font should now display fine
  • Restart Flash – all fonts should now display as normal.

Morphing effect using Adobe Photoshop

Hello friends today i am going to show you –“How to morph two different images into one images using Adobe Photoshop”. For doing this we need two different images i have used this two images of a bird and a dog. If you want to try this on this image just download this image.
  • To download Right click on the image –> Save image As –> Choose where you want to save the image –> Ok.


Morphing effect using Adobe Photoshop

  • Open Adobe Photoshop.
  • Go to File –> Open the downloaded image from where you have save the images previously.
  • Now we will start off chopping the dog's head. Here i am using lasso tool (better if you use Magnetic lasso tool) to crop the dog's head.
  • Now after you create the selection you have to right click inside the path and select make selection, then copy and paste it on the bird image.
  • After pasting on the bird layer you will have to right click on the dog's head layer on the layers palette and convert it to smart object. Then hit CTRL+T and match it to the bird's head.
  • This is how we convert the elephant head to smart object, it greatly helps in maintaining the quality after cropping.
  • Now that we have transformed the dog’s head on top of our bird we will create a new adjustment layer and control the hue and saturation for the dog’s head to match it to the bird. So yeah hold alt and click the “create new fill and adjustment layer” select the hue and saturation and enter the settings shown below.
  • Create a new layer and name it skin, in this layer we are going to make the scales of the bird on the dog’s head. For doing this we will quickly grab the clone stamp tool and select sample all layers and then hold alt on the bird’s scales and using a soft brush put it on the elephants head. Make sure you are on the skin layer which you created now!
  • Here is the final result.

How to Reduce the Images size in Adobe Photoshop

♠ Rakshith Mlore in ,,,
This is probably the most basic of tasks you can do with image editing software. Digital cameras often save images in high quality, and a standard 1024 x 768 high-quality image can be about 1.5 - 2 MB large, depending on the image details. E-mailing 10 such images means an attachment size of over 10MB. Unless you (and the recipient of the e-mail) have a broadband or a very reliable dial-up connection, this can be a pain. Besides, if you are uploading images onto an image-sharing Web site such as or, you don’t really need very high quality images—ditto if you’re embedding images into a PowerPoint presentation. In all these cases, you might want to compress your images (thus also reducing quality) making for smaller file sizes.

Once your image is open in the File menu, click on Save As. Choose the directory you want to
save it in, and the extension it will have. By default, the “save as” type will be the same as that of the original image if you haven’t made changes to it such as adding layers or masks. Select the JPEG type if it’s not already selected by default, and click Save. Now a JPEG options box will pop up, giving you a quality vs. file size setting. You can move the slider to the left (smaller file size) to choose a lower quality. Alternatively, you can enter a numeric value between 1 and 12. The file size corresponding to any particular setting is displayed at the bottom of the box.

The Format Options allows you three choices—Baseline (standard), Baseline (optimized) and Progressive. Baseline Optimized can reduce file sizes better than Standard, but certain image reading software and browsers were not compatible with this—hence the option. However, for your purposes of sharing images today, you can safely choose Baseline Optimized. Now, we come to Progressive JPEG: have you observed certain images on the Web appearing initially blurred and then gradually getting clearer in three to five passes? The details appear progressively— hence the name. If you are not saving the image for the Web, you can ignore this option.
Adobe Photoshop CS6 image file reduce

The extent to which you can reduce the file size of your images is something you have to decide based on the quality that’s acceptable to you for your purposes. The distortion that the quality loss.The JPEG saving options in Photoshop will produce also depends on the image itself. For example, an image that is already pixelated will look very bad even if its file size is reduced by a small amount, while a photo from a good digital camera can be reduced to up to 60% of its original file size with no or hardly any visible loss in quality. However, assuming a similar quality of the original images, a rule of thumb is that those that have high detail—that is, considerable variation of colors across the image—must not be reduced much (say, less than 80%), while images that have uniform spreading of a single colour can be reduced to about 40% or lesser of their original size.

Adobe Flash CS3

♠ Rakshith Mlore in ,,
To get right down to basics, there are many of you who may have never used Adobe Flash, or for that matter, any Adobe product before. This chapter will help you understand the interface, timelines, layers, guides, and more...

The Interface

When you first load Flash CS3, you will see the Welcome screen. This Welcome Screen (in Flash CS3) is slightly different from the Welcome screen of earlier versions of Flash, for example in, say, Flash 8. You can clearly see the difference in the pictures shown below and on the following pages:
Macromedia Flash 8Adobe Flash Professional CS3
   The Welcome Screen of Flash 8                                The Welcome Screen of Flash CS3

The Workspace

The Workspace is the arrangement of various Flash-elements such as the Tools panel, Control panels, Property inspectors and Windows. We will walk you through what each of these is in later sections. You can change the workspace layout from the “Workspace” drop-down menu. There are three workspace layouts available to you in Flash CS3: Default, Icons and Text Default, and Icons Only Default. The same options can be seen from the Window menu as well: Window --> Workspace.
