I have had Flash MX for some time, just neaver played with it. I need to know how to comvert a JPG or GIF picture into a SWF picture? Can it be done using Macromedia Flash MX, and if so, how?

Thanks for the reply. I was able to import the jpg, but then what? Do I just save as or export image or is the a convert process that needs to be don first? I think the save as will only save it as a job.

You can use "GIF2SWF Converter" (GIF to SWF).

It is a simple utility to convert animated GIF files into Macromedia Flash Movies (SWF).

If you want to make it through Macrpomedia Flash player only then Please use the help option of software.

You will get your response.

If you have already imported jpg file then save it as <name>.swf with save as option . it will be automatically converted to swf format.

Another thing you may want to take into consideration is the size of the image Vs the size of the flash file.

Most likely your default flash screen size will be set to something larger than the picture you import. This will cause you to see white space around your image once you view it.

Pretty easy to fix though:

You can make sure the size of your stage is exactly the size of your image if you click anywhere on the screen (besides the image) you can see the page properties below. You can resize the stage there by entering the desired dimensions.

hope this helps.
