How to create a Flash Website

In this tutorial, I’ll be showing you how to make a Flash website without any programming

knowledge. Project Rome is a free tool from Adobe that lets you make Flash Websites, PDFs, Certificates, Brochers, etc. It works with simple drag n drop function. There’s so much you can do with this software but today i’ll only be covering some basics and tips so that you can build  your own flash website with ease.
To begin I’ll show you how to edit a ready made templates from Rome.

1.How to Begin: Select Create New> Websites> [Any template you want but i am choosing Lawyer]

2. How to edit a Text: Choose the Layout Text Tool from the panel and double click on any text to edit them. Delete the given text and type whatever you want. Use the pencil tool on the side(the icon of Project Rome) to adjust more settings and tributes like Text color, font, size, etc. To insert a text, select the Text tool from the panel and draw that onto the website. On the side you will find the other pages under the column ‘Sheets’, Simply double click on the any text and edit them. Master sheet is a page that will be displayed on every page you create, For instance you could see that all the pages have the content in the master sheet.

3. How to insert any object into your Website(Pictures, Videos, Flash files, Shapes, etc) : On the menu strip, Select Insert. You will now find several options, For inserting an image choose Insert>File>[Choose your image from a folder]. Same way, To insert a shape(a rectangle, a bubble or anything) choose Insert>Shapes>[choose your shape from any category]. When you got your object inserted, Use the scaling option to adjust the size of the object.

4.How to Delete any object from a page:  To delete anything, Highlight the objects and press the ‘Delete’ button on the keyboard.

 5.How to add more Pages: Under the Sheets column, Select the ‘+’ symbol and select ‘New Sheet’. Repeat the procedure as many times as you want.

To create a Website from scratch, begin by selecting Create New>Websites>Blank -Top Navigation

( I chose this template so that we don’t have to waste our time creating pages, Navigation bars, Heading, etc. All we get is a couple of blank pages with Navigation bars, Heading, etc.)

Please see the basics to know how insert Text, Pictures, Shapes, etc into your website.
