importing images? - Macromedia Flash Sitedesign

Hey all, thanks in advance for any help! Got a quick question. I'm very new to Flash MX, only been playing with it for about a week now, and I've noticed something with image quality after I import my images. They seem to lose a lot of their original quality.

    Default importing images?

    Hey all,

    thanks in advance for any help! Got a quick question. I'm very new to Flash MX, only been playing with it for about a week now, and I've noticed something with image quality after I import my images. They seem to lose a lot of their original quality. Particularly, my buttons that I have created () [url]http://psndesign.productsiege.com/flashTest/flashTest.htm[/url] are indexed images at only 3 colors and look very sharp in photoshop. They even look good in the working environment in flash, but when I publish, it appears as though flash has distorted them a bit and even stretched the text thats imbedded in the image to be taller. Im using pixel fonts for the image, so they should look sharp as can be. I've turned off smoothing when I import the images, and it doesnt help. So, any suggestions, or is this just the way flash is? Thanks again.

    Chris

    when u import an image in flash, it will optimize while exporting tht is y ur image is blured,

    for tht u can change the publish settings, there increase the jpeg compression,
    another way open library right click on the particular bitmap
    go to properties > uncheck use imported jpeg data > change the compression to 80 or 90.

    this will increase the compression of jpeg while exporting.

    regarding font

    flash will break ur font while exporting, so u won't get sharpness.
    if u need sharpness use system fonts like ariel or verdana and check the option 'use device fonts' in properties panel.

    try

    thanks a bunch... I was actually useing the png/gif setting for all of my images. I just figured since I was importing gif's that they had to be labeled as gif's in the properties of the image in the library. Changing them all to jpeg and then setting it to 100 made a world of difference. Thanks again!
