  • Convert .psd to .swf

    With most of my hardware out of the way, I'm playing with the frontends now.

    Biggest problem is I have a .psd image with a transparent section that I want to use in the frontend but not sure how to get it to a .swf image? If I flatten it out to .jpg I lose the transparency. Sorry, I'm not a graphics guy so any help would be appreciated.

    Any reason it needs to be in Flash format? Aside from building the flash file yourself you wont find a way to do it. The reason is a SWF is simply a Flash Applet and a PSD is simply a Photoshop document.

    It is like comparing a Static HTML Webpage vs this forum. Static is just that, static, a picture. The forum is dynamic, always changing.

      Just trying to replace the main logo's for a couple of the front-ends to customize it a little. Apparently they are set up for either swf or jpg. But jpg doesnt support the transparency I need and I know nothing about flash. I have the file I want in .psd but no other format. That's why I was wondering if there was an easy way for the conversion.

        download flash from http://macromedia.com .. you get a free 30 day trial ..

        export the PSD from photoshop as PNG .. import the PNG into flash .. save and you're done. ()FYI, FLA is flash source, SWF is the compiled version, you need to export the SWF from flash .. )
