I have an image.
its dimensions are 1600x1200 and weighs in at around 300k.

i saved it in PS at the dimension i needed for my Flash work : 412x243.
the file size was around 50k.
i import it. i place it where i want. the image is all blocky and not acceptable.

i try again. this time with the same image, but i save it at 700x400. same res, around 50k.
once in Flash, i reduce the dimension, and the image looks great !
but now i have maybe 40k or so more file size added to my .fla.

what's going on ? im not that bothered as the site can handle a few more ks, but im just curious. is it something i have done to my .fla to make it reacte to the images in this way ?

just wondering.
(has anyone had any photos accepted to be used at photocase.com ? i have submitted maybe 8, and all but 1 were rejected !)

weird, usally if you downsized it it would appear blocky, not the other way around.

hmm, have you tried turning 'smoothing' off in the library?
