Now you're ready to export your image for flash.

Click on "File." Then select "Save for web..." It is important that you select .png as your export type. A .png file will stay true to your colors (unlike a jpg) so that when you import this file into flash, you will be able to have the blue backgrounds (the one in this export and the one in flash) match up. If you have white as a background, using .png is not important. The .png format is also good for exporting with transparency, but I won't go into that here. One last issue that you might run into when you are exporting your flash movie, since flash compresses bitmaps into .jpg format, you may get some color mismatch (not as great as what you would have if you didn't export as .png here). The work around here is to run your .swf, stop it when the .jpg is on the screen, and use the eyedropper tool under "modify" "movie..." to match the .jpg with your own background). But on most monitors, you probably won't even be able to see any differences in color.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
