Question Re: Photo Gallery

Now I show you my ignorance:
I want to know if the Photo Gallery in Kirupa’s tutorial that uses a path to the pictures in the gallery vs. a Photo Gallery that has imported pictures in the library takes less computer processing power/fewer KBs.
…I’m sure many of you will get a chuckle out of this question, but hey, I wanna’ know.

if only selected pictures are loaded it uses less kb, since the whole swf would be loaded, including attached images.

if something is misspelled:
sorry - I’m drunk
