Dynamically loading images

Hey guys! I had a quick question, hopefully it’s alot easier answered than explained…so here I go.

Working on a project and basically, we want the end-user to be able to upload a .jpeg, .gif, etc. and then we need the image to be passed into Flash so we can present it in several different ways (for example, if we were asking the user to upload a picture of their face…so that we can present them a flash .swf with their face projected on a billboard). The flash and the image upload don’t have to be two seperate entities if it makes the process any easier (if you think using an image upload form in flash, using that FileReference I’ve been hearing about)…

I hope this explanation is enough, and I would appreciate any and all help. Thanks in advance for reading and pondering!
