    image quality

    I noticed something when I make an image to import into Flash in Photoshop. The image will be all messy (edges are messed up and things of that nature). How can I rectify this? A lot of stuff I wanna do to images (like filters, for example) can only be done in Photoshop.

    .gif (has transparency, but looks flawless in Photoshop)

    Should I just try to stick with JPEGs? What other image formats work well? How about PNGs? Just wondering.

    I found that .gif format turns out a lot better in Flash (when imported) then JPEGs have looked. However, I haven't tried the PNG format, but because it uses vector graphics instead of bitmap formats then I believe it would be the best results over all considering that Flash itself uses vector graphics for creating what is possible inside the Flash program itself.

    Hope this helps,

    Just use jpg format and use the loadMovie or loadMovieNum command to save on building up the size of your swf.
