Adobe Flash is a multimedia platform often used for adding animation and interactivity to web pages. Flash is used to create animation, advertisements, and various web page components, to integrate video into web pages and to develop rich Internet applications. Flash can manipulate vector and raster graphics and supports bidirectional streaming of audio and video. It contains a scripting language called ActionScript. Several software products, systems, and devices are able to create or display Flash content, including Adobe Flash Player, which is available free for most common web browsers, some mobile phones and for other electronic devices (using Flash Lite).

A series of videos teaching how to use Flash is available on Adobe TV.
