Hi all,

I'm in the process of setting up a website for my Villa.  I contacted the company i bought it from and they said i can use the images on their website.

However the images are embeded into flash.

If the images are embedded in a .swf  (Adobe Flash file) there is no 'address' in any conventional sense that you mean. You cannot access these images as if they were separate image files on a server.

I guess you'll have to ask 'the company you bought it from' to make the images available separately? (That's what I'd be doing next anyway)

I've asked them and they said they dont have it, so to just screen grab it from the website.  I'd rather get the original.

i dont know if it's embedded, but pretty sure it's easy to get either way.

Screen grab is one way.

Another is to decompile the swf using a tool like http://www.sothink.com/product/flashdecompiler/ which will allow you to extract the resources from the swf (unless the author of the swf has taken unusually strict measures to protect their content from being decompiled)

You should know that some people frown on the action of decompiling a swf, and see that as theft of content, but since you have the permission of the author of the content to use it, I guess that permission protects you from that accusation.

In this case, the image is actually being loaded by the app from here:

I found that by using the network tab in developer tools (ctrl + Shift + i) on Chrome. Firebug in Firefox will also give you this info.
