When I load png images using Loader class and then access pixel colors I get values different from those I see in image editor. For example, if in image editor I make blue color rectangle(0x0000ff), export it as png and load it using Loader I get 0xfe color value. Is there any options I can set to preserve original colors? The issue does not happen for gif files.
I now get your problem using MSPaint
if you create an image in MSPaint filled with 0x0000ff and open it in flash flash thinks it's 0x0000fe however if you open it in photoshop you get 0x0000ff
here are some other posts on the issue (with no solution)
oddly you don't get the same problem if you embed the image only if you load it using Loader
