I have several JPEG images and want to do the following:

1) Convert those images to graphic sysmbols
2) Make image 1 morph to image 2, then to image 3, and so forth to the last image.
.
Is the above impossible?
Please advise.
Thanks.

Start off by dragging the very first image from your library (image1) and onto the stage, and then press F8 to convert it to a symbol.

Images imported into flash in any bitmap format will not be capable of being used in a shape tweened frame. This means that JPEGs, GIFs, PNGs, or whatever image format you use, it will not work in a morphing animation because they are not in vector format. Luckily for us, the Flash authoring tool can convert bitmaps to vectors for us. The command is readily available under Modify > Bitmap > Trace Bitmap. Tracing a bitmap will convert our image into a vector image that can be used normally in a shape tweened frame.

So for morphing the images, put them in different frame on the same layer on main  timeline and convert them where they are?
