What's the best way to load images dynamically into a swf and control the dimensions so an image will always take up the same space on the scene.  What happens when you dynamically load a landscape image, in a portrait space?  Will it streatch and squish into the space or will it keep the proportions and cut off the sides?

you cannot create a space where your image does shrink, it always occupies it's original size. if you want to make it fit a fixed area, you have to resize it with actionscript. at this link you can find an example of an external images loader, which automatically resize loaded images:
