You can use actionscript. However you would find it far more easy doing this in an external program and importing that inside Flash. You can make a text rotate animation in Adobe After effects & import that inside a movie clip in your flash project.

There are plugins, XCatalog by Em Software comes to mind, but that isn't an inexpensive solution. However, it does babysit the process. Does InCopy provide any options for you?

Select the image and click the Expand Button on the control bar across the top of the screen. Click here for the help files about using Adobe Illustrator's Image Trace feature. (or simply tap the F1 key when in the application and ask your question in the help file search box.)

According to the Adobe dev team... Illustrator honors exact precision. It is merely the input fields which round to 3 decimal places (4 in newer versions). So if you input 10 decimal spots, Illustrator uses 10 decimal figures, but the input field will only show 3 (or 4). I can neither confirm nor deny that. Nothing I do needs that much precision. However, I ...

The Illustrator PDF Editing Method: Open one of multi-page, edit & save - Illustrator's open file dialog box allows you to open a specific page of the PDF document. When change a single page and save it, those changes are saved to the original PDF document overwriting only that page of the multi page PDF file. Aside from seeing every page as an artboard, ...

If the monochrome logo was not provided by the customer themselves, it was most probably made using a Gradient Map. A way to achieve the desired effect would be: Open your logo file in Photoshop. Ideally, this is a file with transparency, but one with a (white) background will work as well. Open the Layers palette: Window > Layers or F7. Click the ...

In light of the new layer filtering features in Photoshop CS6, Adobe removed the Select→Similar Layers command. Hooray! It’s a rare thing when a menu gets shortened. Source So it's gone...Now you use filtering at top right of the layer menu:

Whip up the Appearance panel, either with Window > Appearance or Shift+F6. In there, you should see the Round Corners effect be named. You can either drag the effect to the panel's waste bin and start anew, or click the effect's name to have its dialogue box pop up again, where you can edit the effect to your heart's content.

Yes, at least when it comes to dragging out ruler guides, like you appear to be doing. When dragging a ruler onto the canvas, hold the shift key and your guide will be constrained to the 'ticks' on the ruler. So when viewing at 100%, as you drag, your guide will snap to every 10 pixel increment. You can snap to every single pixel by zooming in to 1200%, ...

I've run into this bug for years. It's most definitely not cause by groupings or compound paths, as I've used the gradient tool within them plenty of times. Sometimes simply restarting illustrator will bring the tool back, but not always. I've never found a consistent method for fixing this outside of just remaking the object and re-applying the gradient. ...

Select the path and that white burst.... choose Object > Compound Path > Make from the menu.

No, you simply use black (just like you are doing for the background) for the stroke on the text. To make it easy, make your black a CMYK black, instead of a spot – then you can advise the printer to simply ignore all CMYK and print the spot plates only. To visualise as you're working, bring up the "Separations Preview" (Window menu) to see a list of ...

You have to ungroup the shape layer and you can extend it as it pleases you.

I came up with a nice method for cleaning up pictures like this, and it works even when the background or lighting is uneven (that is, far worse cases than the example in this question) and it retains the colour. My instructions are based on the Gimp, but it would be very similar in other programs like Photoshop. Firstly, make a duplicate of the layer: ...

Ramp the contrast up with curves. Instructions: Select your image and press Ctrl-M. This will bring up the curves dialog. Move the top point left and the bottom point right until your image becomes black and white. (that rhymes!)

First you'll want to desaturate the image (CMD+SHIFT+U), this removes any color and makes it easier to achieve pure white. With your file open, choose Image->Adjustments->Levels. You'll get this: Now bring the two outer triangles in like this (you'll need to play around with this until you get something you like): You should end up with this!

From the menu, choose Object > Transform > Shear or Right Mouse Button/Control-Click (Mac) and choose Transform > Shear. That Should do the trick. You could also go to the Transform Panel in the top right of your screen (Or Window > Transform), like you can see in the following screenshot:

Just put your large, edited image in PowerPoint, resize it there, and print. I just took one that was sized in CS6 as 38 inches wide and made a perfect 4x6 out of it with no lossy issues. As we used to say in the old days when we had to do our own programming, the best solution is the simplest one, or what we used to call an "elegant solution."

Sorry to say that, it is not possible in photoshop yet.
