As far as I know, there is only two ways to make pictures smaller in size (kb); lower the resolution or make the actual picture smaller. You can use a program like Photoshop to do that. That’s what I have done in the past to make my HTML webpages load faster.
Another idea; (if you have a catalog of pictures) make thumbnail pictures in your flash movie, turn them into buttons, then link them to bigger pictures on a HTML file that will be expected to take a little while to load. Plus, your viewer will be waiting for one picture at a time as opposed to all of them at once.
I’m kinda new at this stuff too, I hope this helps:smirk:
