How to Properly Photoshop an Image for Flash Movies
If you are going to Photoshop an image and use it in Flash to scale it you have two routes:
1. You can make a much higher resolution image for the importing to the Flash library to try and preserve detail, or;
2. You can make the image the largest size that it will be in the movie before being scaled down
With option one you risk the page tearing effect with the Flash movie, but it may be preferred if the flash plays up to par on the test machine. Option two usually always guarantees a smooth transition with the scaling and rotational effects (masking included).
In the past I use to always use the first option but I have completely switched over to number two for preserving the frames per second, so just a heads up to everyone that reads this.
