      I just wanted to say that this limitation is a real pain in the ***. Is there really no way to load a larger image (from a single image file) dynamically?

      I'll buy you a beer if you have a good solution

          Ok so what I CAN do is place (for example) a 5000px image into an fla, scale the image to 50%, publish it as a 2500px swf, then load that swf into my movie and scale it to 200%. Sort of a pain with many files. The limitation is so stupid that Macr... pardon Adobe should pay for the hours..

          I think I will buy myself a beer even though it is not a "single image file" that I'm loading

            correct. you have to use a work-around.

              Actually I just found a way that doesn't involve any scaling Or manual work for that matter. So ... I will buy myself a six pack.

                Well, shoot! Share it! (The workaround, not the six pack.)

                  Well the funny thing is that although you can not load a large JPEG you actually can load a large SWF. So all you need is a third party software to produce the large SWFs from JPEGs. Enter jpeg2swf from http://www.swftools.org/ .
