Illustrator tips and techniques

I'm doing a lot of Illustrator work at the moment: making multiple frames and getting people to move efficiently requires a bit of illustrator magic here and there. I'm learning new little tricks with Illustrator every day so i thought i'd collect the most fun and useful tutorials that i come across right here:


Full screen flash that works on IE 6 and 7

On I wanted full screen flash to get that fully immersive flash experience. This is fairly simple to achieve with SWFObject, but there are a few IE gotchas.

Depending on how you want to do it there are a few CSS options. What I wanted to do was get the flash object to take over the whole browser and remove any other div, I also wanted to remove the scrollbars. Any scaling and scrolling I would do within the flash.


Hooking up Drupal and Flash
