    thanks for the help.... it's just weird that it looks great in flash and as an .jpg image but when I save it as .swf and view it from a browser it looks horrible.

    thanks

    The problem is this:

    On your original page/image the graphic is displayed at 100% size: whether or not the browser window is moved, the pic always stays the same size: 100%. This means it looks 100% like it should.

    However, on your Flash Movie, the Movie is set to shrink of grow to the size of the browser window (try it), so your image shrinks or grows with the Movie which it is within. That's why your image looks **** - because it is never displayed at 100% size. You must set your Flash Movie to always display at 100% size - this should be done when you publish the Flash Movie, but could also be a property you will need to find and set in your html web layout program (Dreamweaver, or whatever).

    Any Q's, just ask.

    Regards, Pavey.

    Add Action in layer of first frame this tells the movie to open to its true size not full screen.
    FS Command first one equals True
    Second One equals False


    Cheers,
    Bret

    P.S. Save you files as .pngs for flash they are much better than .jpgs for flash

    Maybe this will help

    In the library window, double click on the jpeg image of Devious to open up the bitmap properties window. Under Compression - click on the arrow and choose Lossless(PNG/GIF), or if you want to keep it as a Photo(JPEG), uncheck Use imported JPEG data and put 100 in the Quality box. Click update and then OK. You can experiment with the different settings to come up with the best quality at the lowest file size.

    read the replies, one question, what about upload time, if his image is being shrink by his publish setting, can he just resize the image to the proper "display" size, thus saving flash from having to extrapolate the image information when publishing?

    just curious, I am new to flash and would like to know, I'm going to experiment with publishing settings v original image resizing

    will keep ya'll posted
