    Which is the better,
    To optimize a picture in Photoshop (make it web-ready) or to save the picture in the best quality and let Flash's picture quality do the work?

    And if I choose the first method, should I then set the quality in Flash to 100?

    It depends if you are restricted to file size . . .

    I do both. I get my image into Image-Ready as higher res as possible, and muck about with the settings untill I am happy. Then I import into Flash and export the movie 5, maybe even 10 times, checking out the quality and file size.
    (i.e. my sunflower footer started out at about 1 meg)
    REMEMBER: Flash doesn't really like Bitmaps coz it's really a vector programme . . . so it's crucial to optimise wherever you can.

    Have you tried breaking a bitmap apart in FLASH?
