Understanding the Load Graphic Behavior

The Load Graphic Behavior lets you load .jpg images into a running Flash movie. The advantages to loading a graphic, as opposed to embedding a graphic is huge. You can create what is called a Flash front-end movie. A front-end movie is a small Flash movie that contains areas to load different graphics images. For example, you have several graphics that you want to incorporate into a slide show. You can create a Flash movie with a scene for each graphic, and then embed the images into each scene; you can create a timeline with individual keyframes, each holding a graphic; or you can create a single scene and use Behaviors such as Load Graphic to add the images, when required.

Planning the Project

Since you are loading (not embedding) images, the setup is important to the successful completion of the project. You will need to create a specific folder to hold all of the images that you'll use for your project, and then you'll need to know their height and width. Since you might be loading more than one image into your project, it's important that all the images are the same height and width. After you create the folder, drag the images you want into the folder. The Load Graphic Behavior requires that all the images be saved in the .jpg format.
