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 ;-)

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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.
