    Smile Questions about file compression using SFW?

    Hi there Flash community...

    You probably have the answer. I am building a portfolio for my Flash/HTML site. Rather than load large jpgs traditionally I want to use a flash file.

    Is it true that SWF files compress images and process images faster using Flash on some ones machine than traditionally allowing the browser to cache a file and display it?

    Is it considerably faster?

    With answer, thanks for your input.

    Flash will compress a 24 bit png with alpha a lot smaller than it would normally be, but won't compress a jpeg or 8 bit png more than it already is.
