You need an “FTP Client”
  • Dreamweaver has one built in.
  • If you don’t have Dreamweaver, use another:SmartFTP free for PC at http://www.smartftp.com/Fetch for Macs at http://fetchsoftworks.com/
  • An even easier way to access and drag/drop files to the Web is to go to ftp.yourdomanname.com. With your login and password, the files will probably open up in a window.

Inserting Flash
  • The authoring files in Flash are called .fla files.
  • When you publish the document for the web, you create an .swf file (pronounced “swiff” and standing for “shockwave flash”).
  • This file can be inserted into a web page, just like a still graphic can be, using embed tags in HTML or using a WYSIWYG to insert it for you.
