How to optimize the size of the .swf file.

I was doing a small flash intro. I almost finished it and the size was only 333kb.
Today, i did some minor changes to that intro like color change, increasing the frame rate chaning the background etc...now the .swf file size is 1.2 mb.

I am new to flash and i don't know why the size increased.
Any suggestions on reducing its size? I tried deleting the unused symbols from the library. Now the size has become 1.3 mb?!!!
