Load an image into a flash application from an external location

I am having a flash application built and need the following :

I have an image that is stored in a folder called 'Images'. I need this image called main.jpg to be shown as the background in a flash .swf but I do not want the image to be stored internally to the flash file. It's location must stay external to the flash file in this 'images' folder.

The reason I need this is becasue this flash file will be used many times, and every time it is used again the image (main.jpg) will change and I want to be able to simply replace the image in the 'Images' folder rather than having to do it through Flash, as I do not have adobe flash.

How can I do that
1 Solution
In AS3, user Loader Class to load image.
import flash.display.Loader;
import flash.events.Event;
import flash.net.URLRequest;

var image_path:String = "imagse/my_image.jpg";
var loader:Loader;
var request:URLRequest;

public function loadImage()
    loader=new Loader();
    request=new URLRequest(image_path);
    loader.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE,onComplete, false, 0, true);

function onComplete(event:Event):void {


Open in new window
