You could use "SharedObjects" to store stuff locally. SharedObjects basically store data in the user's local machine folder for the installed Flash Player.
If the user logged on to a different computer, those settings would not be there.
Also, do you plan to store images, or just pointers/filepath references to the images?
It is probably best to use image path/file references instead of storing images directly.
There are many things to consider.
Great thanks, just want to store the filepaths.
Seems simple enough
