    andysan...if you need transparency in Flash, I would recommend exporting an image from Photoshop as a PNG (with embedded clipping path). The awesome benefit of that you can actually have feathered clipping paths using PNG.

    andysan, here is the process (using PS 5.5 and Flash 4)

    1) Create a mask for your image and apply the mask. Do not delete it, just make sure that what you want masked out is masked out.

    2) Save a copy as a PNG

    3) Import the PNG into Flash. You should now have a masked-out image.

    Tweak your mask however you want. As I said previously, you can have a feathred mask this way.

    God Bless PNG!
