photo gallery image fuzzy

I have a flash photo gallery that was created by someone else. The problem is that the thumbnails of the image is fuzzy. It can be viewed on www.pesllc.com/pictures.aspx . No matter what i change the picture to it is still fuzzy or to big. I think that there is something in the actionscript that makes the image bigger than what i have. (ie. the image is 37x37, but when it is a thumb it is big so it stretches and makes the image fuzzy). I just don't know where this is. There were notes that came with this but nothing on this. I have attached the entire actionscript because i have no idea where it is. If there is another place this can be please let me know.

Hi,

Did you try taking out lines 194 & 195?  

Personally, I think your thumbnails are the right size, but, yes, they are blurry.  I'd resample the larger image and make the thumbs a little bigger.

If i take out these 2 lines nothing appears in the large picture area.
Also, I tried with bigger images but it shows up bigger than the thumb area so that wasn't an option

I think your image is being scaled, which is why it shows up larger than the thumb area when you use a bigger thumb image.  

It looks like you may have left out some code.  containerMC contains the thumbnail images, and it is probably being scaled, but there is only one area it's referenced  in your code (178 & 179).  I would try to find any place else that is referenced and probably scaled.

That's what i figured previously, but i've been having the hardest time finding out where. The only thing that i left out was the beginning picture array to shorten up the code, but i  can't be certain i didn't miss anything. I have zipped the file the flash file for you to view if you have time here

I'm not sure if I can add more than 500 points but I will gladly do so if possible. Thanks.

Okay, I looked at your fla file.  ContainerMC is called outThumb.  Try scaling it smaller in the flash authoring tool, or adding the lines:

containerMC._xscale = 100;
containerMC._yscale = 100;

right after line 154.  You'll have to play around.  I would make the thumbnails twice the size, and change the above lines to 50 instead of 100.

Thanks worked like a charm. I ended up with the following where you suggested

containerMC.inThumb._xscale = 53;
containerMC.inThumb._yscale = 53;
