Unbelievable... someone who doesn't know what they are talking about.
if you take the time to read the manual and go throught th built in tutoirlas you would find out why flash is so good.
as for FLASH vs. DHTML:
-Flash is completly crossbrowser (IE comes with it, and in mozzila at least, you just need to install the plugin which even the biggest technophobe could do) where as DHTML needs differnt code for differnt browsers which takes time that you could be using making better flash animations.
-Flash can import JPEG, MP3, AVI, WAV, BMP... files for use in it
-Flash can be used with XML, PHP and its own propriety server software for server side apps
-Flash scripts are still quite small in size, and in the worst of cases, you can use a preloader
as for photoshop, could you suggest a better Graphics Program?
if you choose a rubbish course, go rant somewhere else
