Flash Templates Tutorials - Tracing
No matter how hard you try to reduce the size of the original image file, you can always try to make it even less directly in Flash.
For this is the tracing, i.e. converting raster graphics into vector.
Do not trace pictures, in most cases, this would lead to an increase of the volume and decrease of the quality, but the images from the drawn graphics (drawings, sketches, trademarks firms, etc.) are traced easily.
To trace - open Modify / Trace Bitmap
Set the necessary properties Color Threshold - set the level of color differences of neighboring pixels (the smaller the number, the greater will be the vectors in the figure). Minimum Area - the minimum size of the vector. Curve Fit – the value of accuracy of curves while tracing. Corner Threshold - the level of differences of curves and angles.
It is impossible to provide any universal properties of values, by using different settings you can achieve the best result. Try different properties to each traced images. After some experience, you will be able to determine what value of settings will be the best according to the nature of the image.
