Your Guide to Macromedia

Macromedia logo 155 px pngMacromedia was a company most well known for its graphics and authoring applications like Flash, Shockwave and Dreamweaver, along with other web technologies like ColdFusion. Originally Macromedia's flagship product was Director, which was a widely used tool for creating interactive CD-ROM applications and kiosk displays. The market for Director began to decline as the internet became more popular, which prompted a move to creating web authoring and multimedia tools.

Macromedia was acquired by Adobe in 2005, and its product line is now available under the Adobe branding. However it is not uncommon to see references to Macromedia in relation to Flash and Dreamweaver, and on the Adobe web site.
