I'm building a set of animated ad banners in Flash CS5 for a client to load in their google adwords account. The max file size adwords accepts is 50KB. Of course the client wants to pack the ads with multiple images, so I'm now in a battle to get the banners compressed below 50 KB.
This is where it get's strange. I had a banner's SWF down to 52 KB. I was close, so I went back into photoshop and compressed the images even more, replaced the images in the FLA, published the movie, and WTF... the file size went up!... 62 KB!
What's going on there? In my experience, the smaller the image size you import into flash, the smaller the SWF file size.
Any help would be appreciated!
