Chapter 6. Importing Graphics > Setting Bitmap Compression

Setting Bitmap Compression

When you export a Flash movie you can decide how much color information to include in each exported bitmap. This is called compression. The more compression you apply, the less color information is included and the lower the size and quality of the image. Lossy compression reduces the file size by removing color information, while lossless compression reduces the file size (not as much) without removing information. You can choose to set a global compression for all bitmap files used your Flash movie or you can set a separate compression for each image. As with all image compression, file size needs to be weighed against image quality. It is always best to experiment until you get the results you want.
