Im importing bitmaps into flash from photoshop.
Some of the images save down better as gifs
rather than jpegs. Does it matter which format
I use in Flash? Is there any advantage to using
jpeg vs. gifs or vice versa?
Once I have the bitmap in Flash they are
converted to symbols for Alpha effets...i
need to keep the original import in order to
keep the symbols. Why is this...does the
symbol rely on the importd artwork?
They will both work, although unless you do not allow scaling in your swf, I would not use gif's thay have poor resolution. For the best image quality stick with a jpeg or png. As for your resolution question try saving your jpegs with a higher quality -medium or higher if needed.
