    flash can load only simple jpgs, but I think that there is other software out there that can be placed on the server and convert the gifs into swfs.

    First thing you should learn is how to use a search engine!

    Thanks! and since you're already a pro at using the search engine, what's the best way to do it to a .jpg? or is there one that will do it for both?

    I'm looking at Ming now, but I'd prefer a simple cgi or php script.

    Flash MX can directly load jpegs, without having to convert them!

    In Flash MX to load external .jpg's

    loadMovie("your.jpg" , "targetMC");

    Maya was talking about loading GIF's not JPG's.
    I'm not sure if ming can do it if the gif is animated

    You cannot dynamically load .gifs into MX only .jpg

    Ming is an SWF output library and PHP module.
    It's a server side program that dynamically generate swf files from JPEG (non-progressive),PNG and GIF (non-animated) images so you can load them into your flash movies.

    Couldn't you just import your .gif .png or .jpg into flash, publish it then import that .swf ?
