The Workshop consists of quiz questions and answers to help you solidify your understanding of the material covered in this hour. You should try to answer the questions before checking the answers.
What's the most appropriate image file format to import into Flash?
- It depends on the nature or content of the image.
If you import a .gif image into Flash, what kind of compression does Flash use on the image when it exports the entire movie?
- It depends on the Compression setting in the Bitmap Properties dialog box.
- Flash always uses JPEG compression, but it's up to you to specify what quality level to use.
- GIFs are exported as GIFs.
How do you import photographs created with a digital camera?
- You can't; you must use conventional film.
- It's simple; click File, Import.
- Be sure to resize the image in an outside program first, then click File, Import.
C. Although a vector graphic has benefits over a raster graphic, the most appropriate image file format to import into Flash depends on the graphic. Photographs usually have to stay as raster graphics.
A. Each image imported can have a unique compression setting that is not dependent on its original format. By default, however, imported .gifs get exported as .gifs.
C. Maybe we're being tricky including a question whose explanation is only found in the Q&A section, but be sure to read the second question in that section if you didn't get this answer right because it's important.
