Hi Everyone,
I have my online gallery using flash (to avoid download of photos), but I was disapointed when I saw the temp folder in the local machine, all the jpg image files were there.

THE QUESTION IS: how can I embeed jpg in flash (swf) files ? I mean, some sites show images in flash, if I check my temp folder I just see swf files (not jpg).

Thanks !!! =)

Since your gallery is dynamic, Flash will call/load/cache those image files just as it would any other file on the web. The way to get around that is to embed your jpegs in your swf, which means "hard" inserting them into your FLA file and publishing it. If you didn't build the gallery (and don't have the FLA), I'm pretty sure you're out of luck for that option.

Be aware that even if you "embed" images like that if somebody wants the photo, all they have to do is hit [Alt]+[PrtScrn] while it is being displayed and paste it into any application.

A better solution, IMHO, is watermarking the image with a semi-transparent/embossed copyright statement, web URL, etc. Then you don't have to deal with trying to prevent people from "ripping" your images, since no matter what they do, the image will always be watermarked.

Thanks both,
Drew, I want to embed the image in the swf file (I have the .fla) Do you have a link to a good tutorial of this ?

Eddy, I'll watermark all the images too. Thanks !

Regards from Mexico =)
