Adding Flash Files to your Blog

Ever wondered how you make you blog more interesting! What about adding Flash animations made with Amara Flash software to your blog!

See a sample of what can be done below, doesn't this look cool! Read on to see how it's all done.



First you need to created a Flash animation in one of the Amara Software Tools. We created the above Flash Banner in the Amara Flash Intro and Banner builder.

After you saved the animation you need to put it online , since Blogger does not allow you to upload any SWF files you need to upload them to your own webserver, or a free image server, in our case we put the SWF file at our own domain , which is http://www.amarasoftware.com and the location of the SWF file will be therefore at

http://www.amarasoftware.com/valentines-animations.swf

Now you have created the SWF file and put the Flash file online, you need to link to it from your Blog. This can be done by adding a few lines of standard html code.

<embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://www.amarasoftware.com/valentines-animations.swf" pluginspage=" http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" height="101" width="400"></embed>

The above code is what we used for the Valentines Flash Animation
You can simply copy and paste the above HTML code and use it on your own Blog. Note if you want to use a different Flash animation you need to update the location of the SWF file , the height and width.

Well that's all, nothing to complex, and the result is amazing!

Regards

Amara

Hi, brilliant tip, except that even though Blogger has left a space for my animation on my blog it hasn't actually uploaded it!! Any idea why that might be? Could it be that the free image server I used isn't working, even though the animation works on their site?
Cheers!

To use Amara software was quite an good experience. With this software you can use your own photos and music, and combine them with animated text to create professional ads.
