You have two options:
press F11 (to open the Library) and right click on the PSD image, Select Properties and check Allow smoothing
Change the JPEG Quality and the type of compression
Cheers for the reply.
I tried both of those multiple times with no luck. I realised the problem was the fact that i was importing multiple layers on top of each other and the graphics were somehow getting pixelated where they overlapped. Solution: to import everything seperately through a painstaking, tedious process. They are still not as crisp as i would like but i dont think they are going to get much better, the quality is sufficient for their purpose. I think its mainly down to the blending styles i applied in Photoshop.
You can probably overlay a mask of the same shape to hide the rough edges.
You might also try drawing the shape in Flash as a vector graphic - it'll save some bytes and will present no pixelation issues.
Export the same image from PS as sequence of PNGs, Then try to import in flash and check the preview.
Hey Ned, I have only started using Flash recently and only because a project requires it in short notice so i was trying to harness my years of experience with the other programs to speed up the workflow, but after experiencing how effective the tools in Flash are for creating the artwork i will consider it for the future.
Thanks for the fedback.
That would have been a good idea alright Jose. I was trying to bring everything into Flash together to save time but ended up wasting a full day. Thanks for the feedback i will consider this method the next time around.
