jpg files seem to be deprecating.
png files may work.
If you publish the file to DCR you'll regain the file size. Director decompresses/expands JPEGs on import so that they display as quickly as possible, without requiring prior decompression
just an idea...
with the property inspector turned on
select the bitmap tag
under 'compression' change it from 'Movie Setting" to 'JPEG'
I believe Director brings in all graphics uncompressed - only compresses them upon publishing
So if you want to publish an .exe with lots of large graphics - and you don't turn on 'Compress Files (shockwave format)' under files - in the publish settings,
or you wish to get your files even smaller - then you can play around with lower jpeg settings
Unfortunately these suggestions are not working...
Its still a huge filesize when I import a png (bigger even!)
Its already set on the jpeg settings and changing that does not help.
I am instructed to submit in dxr format so need to do so.
I am using 10.1 on Windows 7.
With a deadline looming, I'd be very grateful for any more suggestions...?
I am now able to submit in dcr format, so alls well that ends well, with thanks to all....
