    Preload External Jpgs

      What is the easiest way to preload external jpgs? The client wants to update these frequently so they should be external, but I want them to show up instantly like the rest of the site once the preloading is done.

      Any advice? I had thought about loading them into the preloader (at 0% alpha), so that they'd be loaded into the cache during preload, so that when the home page comes up, they'd be all ready to go? But if it's a different instance of the movieclip, will it reload the jpg? Or any time i use that external jpg in the flash file will it already be in the cache?

      Thanks. I've heard a few different things and would love your advice.
