Hiya Curtis,

Okie dokie.

Ive had problems in the past with "banding" due to the way flash
exports jpg.
Flash has a horrible way of handling gradients and photo-realistic images.
Setting to "Lossless" is the only way to get a quality image in swf format.
However this has always
been at a price in size, usually tripling the image size in swf.

If large flat color areas are used I would always advise using Flash's
vector instead of bmp.
