    Good Day,

    Im a rookie that created a CD presentation with Swish (its just like flash) and added some images of my work from print & web that Ive created. I noticed when I played the CD on a 800x600 rez screen the images seem clear & when I play the CD-ROM on a 1024x768 rez monitor some of the pictures look slighty distorted & gritty (especially some of the text).
    The images are converted/exported from thier original formats: CorelDraw (business card), Photoshop (Label), FrontPage (website) into jpg format & inserted into Swish. Is there a tutorial that will help me get around this image distortion on CD-ROM situation. Ive played other CD-ROM's on my computer and thier images seem clear.

    Thanks for the help

    Well your problem is that you converted the Corel files to JPGs. JPGs get artifacted as a part of the compression process. Even worse, Flash then applies another JPG compression on top of the first one when it exports, meaning you get double-artifacting (exponential quality decay).

    The best way to get around this is to export the file as a SWF, DXF, or any other file type that can be imported as a vector graphic into swish. Then you will have 0% decay and the resulting flash movie that you make will also be smaller in file size !!
