Hi,

I have a .fla file which refers to a whole bunch of files in ../img and ../design.

How do I export all of the image files contained in the .fla file, so I can edit them?

Shane.

Is this YOUR fla file? Are you allowed to extract the images?

Ok .. I would have recomended this too, but I was not quite sure if assisting people with decompiling/hacking other peoples work was a good thing to do and if it were allowed here ;-)

Yes, its my .fla file, I paid $82 for it from www.template-help.com

They explain how to export each image - but its a tedious, ten-click process, and there's hundreds of little images in there. There must be an easier way!

I want the images to be exported to the same path as they were originally, so I can just hit "update" after I update the image.

I already own the .fla file (I purchased a license for it).

Do I really have to compile it to .swf, just to extract the images? Surely there's an easier way?

Remember, I want to preserve the paths, so I can just hit "update" to reload the .png file in.

Well then I'd give http://www.sothink.com/ a try. I once used it for finding a solution to a bug in a third party lib ... wokrs great. If I remember it, you have all your code and all your images available and can export them as you like.
