    Resizing images in Flex/AS3 - Any Help?

    xmichaeldx
      Hi,

      I'm new to flex and AS but have alot of experience with programming (C/C++, VB).
      Here is my situation:

      I have a Flex project (Flex Builder 3) which has an Image component with the image file (.png) sourced from a url.

      I need a method of resizing the image in a relatively lossless manner. That is, just scaling it in the image control makes the image look pixelated and crappy. If I was using say, PHP I would use the ImageMagik API to prefilter the image and pass the resized version to the page.

      Is there a native way to do this in Flex/AS? (ie. without using an external filter)?

      Any help is greatly appreciated!
      Thanks in advance.
