Making an Image Editable (continued)

After importing the image, you'll have to turn it into a symbol so it can be manipulated. Click the image, select Insert > Convert to Symbol or simply press F8. Type any name, leave it as a "Graphic" and press Enter.

Now that it is a symbol, you can edit its properties. Double-click it to open its properties (or chose Modify > Instance on the menu, or press Ctrl+I), open the tab "Color Effect", and on the combo box, select "Special" as the color effect. The Special editing fields will open (in Flash 5, it can be found on the "Effects" Panel - menu Window > Panels > Effects).

» Description:

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
