Shivangee Maurya 9V ICT GCSE Full Coursework 09/07/07 Software I will choose all my software considering what will work best for my website. Also what program will suit for all the paper work.

Image editors and creators I have choosen to use Flash Macromedia over Paint as the program itself is much more advanced in terms of all the tools it has unlike Paint which only has the minimum tools required. The main advantage of Flash is that it is a vector program unlike paint which is a bitmap program so when you zoom in it is not clear and not very smooth. Also with macromedia you export images to Dreamweaver very easily unlike which is more complicated to move images about.

Similarities * They both have similar tools for example: zooming in/out, changing colors where needed. * You could also create and edit pictures on both of these programs.
