I've seen alot of instructions online on how to assign a hyperlink to an image. Alot of them say to convert the image to a symbol first and then add the appropriate Actionscript code (getUrl). I'm just wondering if there is a way to do it without converting it to a symbol (converting it to a symbol seems to add an artifact to one of the borders of the pic). Does anyone know if this can be done? Or must all images be converted to symbols to get links assigned to them?
you can't reference an object with actionscript unless it's converted to an object. so, if you want to click an image and have something occur (like execute a getURL) you'll need to convert the object. btw, there's no reason a converted object would be changed in appearance.
If you wouldn`t want to touch you pictures you could always put a 0.0 alpha MovieClip in front of them and instead asign the code to this one.
