Chapter 6. Importing Graphics > Importing Multiple Files

Importing Multiple Files

Flash allows you to import multiple files simultaneously to save time. This is useful if you have many files to import. You can select multiple, non-sequential files in the Import dialog box. Choose to import to the Library or to the Stage directly. When you import to the Stage, the file is stored in the Library and a copy is placed on the Stage so you can begin editing it immediately. If you attempt to import a series of files that are numbered sequentially, Flash detects this and produces a dialog box to handle this. When sequential images are imported, they will appear in separate frames by order of the number in their file name. This is extremely useful for image sequences where a series of images forms an animation.

Import Multiple Files

Click the File menu, point to Import, and then select one of the Import options: Import To Stage or Import To Library.

Click the Show popup (Mac) or Files Of Types list arrow (Win), and then select the format of the file you want to import.

Navigate to the files on your hard drive.

Select the file you want to import, and then hold down the (Mac) or Ctrl (Win) key and click additional files to select them.

Click Import (Mac) or Open (Win).

TROUBLE? You may not be able to see all of the files you've imported because Flash displays them stacked on top of each other.
