Adobe Flash Player features
Adobe is planning to kill Flash and the company has already announced that it will “stop updating and distributing the Flash Player” by the end of 2020. Most of the browsers have already deactivated the plug-in and users have to enable it manually if they wish to use it. However, the plug-in had a nice run. Nowadays Adobe Flash Player can come with various risks for the users, but back in the day it came with many advantages.
Flash Player allows different image formats such as PNG, Progressive, JPEG and GIF and it used an innovative test rendering engine that offered high-fidelity text. Flash allowed users to see videos and it offered high quality and low bandwidth thanks to its performant compression technology.
Flash also has dynamic effects and filters that you can use for Glow, Bevel, Gradient Bevel, Gradient Glow, Blur, Color Matrix, Displacement Map and Convolution.
Many websites still use Adobe Flash Player so you should download the latest version so you can be up to date.
