Here’s a little utility that allows you to batch-resize or crop images and output as JPG — along with the source code. If you’re not familiar with AIR, you just need to download AIR first before you download & install the Image Resizer:

Just ran into this today. I was compiling an AIR application and previewing it in AIR Debug Launcher and got the following error:

De MonsterDebugger is an incredible new AIR app from De Monsters which allows you to debug AS3 Actionscript/Flex projects on the fly. With it, you can trace output statements, view your app’s tree structure, live-edit code and test methods.

To save on bandwidth, we often load transparent external images as SWF’s instead of PNG’s. It’s a bit more production work but it makes everything load a whole lot faster, as SWF uses JPEG compression on the image while maintaining the PNG’s transparency.
I’m going to be presenting at FITC Toronto April 25-28 (exact date TBD). I’ll be presenting with Matt Ronchetti from Sisu about integrating Flash and Drupal. Drupal is an incredible, easy-to-use CMS framework (open-source too). We’ve been using Drupal quite a bit to pass data into Flash — there are a bunch of different methods for doing so, and we’ll cover the pros and cons of each. Looking forward to it!
