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
