Round Trip Between Illustrator/Photoshop and Flash Catalyst

Article Description

What’s easier than creating the content (look and feel) for your project in Illustrator and/or Photoshop, then bringing that directly into Flash Catalyst? Okay, if it was created for you, that would be easier… Brian Wood shows you how Flash Catalyst enables you to add interactivity to that content and export it in the correct format or hand it over to an Adobe Flex developer to add database integration, and much more.

Copy and Paste from Illustrator or Photoshop into Flash Catalyst

Copy and Paste from Illustrator or Photoshop into Flash Catalyst

If you copy and paste from Illustrator into Flash Catalyst, then the Illustrator Import Options dialog box appears as it does when you import content into Flash Catalyst. Copying and pasting from Photoshop, on the other hand, is a different matter. Let’s discuss the Photoshop copy-and-paste process.

In Photoshop, make sure the layers you want to copy are showing (all others are hidden in the Layers panel); then do the following:

  1. Choose Select > All or make a selection of the content (area) to copy.
  2. Choose Edit > Copy Merged.
  3. In Flash Catalyst, choose Edit > Paste, and the flattened content is pasted into its own layer.
