 i will also give you some applications of where and what flash is used for –

this man takes images of Tokyo and begins to edit transform those pictures and the energy surrounding Tokyo to create new animations with flash etc.Image
 
whereas in this application flash has been used to create a game for customer indulgence, tell you what im more keen on flash than processing by far i think i have even underestimated it.
 
from what i have researched and looked into, adobe flash seems to excel at making animations and games and updating there softwarefor those who do not know what flash is, here it is – Image
 
In terms of jobs with being a flash developer there is opportunity’s but not a lot, i think the biggest issue would have to be the experience and grades required for it – Image
 
now this image was taken directly from there website and as you can see there is not currently a job opening for a flash developer, so it can be scarce to come by.

Processing Descritpion

Processing is good at using code to create images, in a way it encourages a new kind of artist…one with the computer so to speak, now i personally dont enjoy using processing but for someone with a very mathematical/logical mind i can see why they would use this. it is very precise and all coded artwork without the use of a pen or pencil.Image

 

this is an example of processing being used in a different way –Image

 

heres another example of processing being used –Image

this type of way the designer is using a digital camera to take a picture and then warp the image with processing to create a new shape/object.

there is also a few jobs hovering around such asImage

i still prefer flash to processing. i feel too restricted with processing.
