I set my images at 60% quality JPG files out of photoshop which seems to give a very nice representation.
I set up a site to take a full screen, so I expect it to be larger on a bigger screen then what I see on mine.
I figured to keep every image actual size at about 25% bigger when the finlal needed size in the layout, so if the site is ever on the bigger screen then images have some stored resolution to be enlarged and accomodate an increase in size.
So all of mine images are scaled at about 75%.
Is it a good practise or things don't work this way in Flash?
Perhaps it is better to keep the images to 100% (rather than importing intentially enlarges images) but make the maximum quality? Or both ways kind of work out?
there's no one way to handle images that's best for everyone. the larger your images, the less pixelated they'll appear when scaled (use smoothing) up but the larger their file size and the longer they'll take for a user to load.
you have to pick what satisfies your needs and works best for you.
Thanks, just wanted to know if what I am doing makes sense.
I was getting concerned that Flash doesn't store this zoomed in capability in the image.
Good to know that I am on the right track.
