I have a customer with an existing Flash site and wanted me to change some of the pictures of his in the site - what would be the easiest way to do this?  I do have Adobe Web Premium CS4 but have not used it a lot.  I also have his .swf file - do I need to open this and convert it to something else in order to edit the pictures?  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks

The swf cannot be edited directly. You need to convert the swf to a .fla file (Flash source document) first.

There are numerous 'swf to fla' converters around - just Google the term 'swf2fla' to see several. I use the one from http://www.sothink.com/product/flashdecompiler/

If you don't expect to be doing this very often, and the swf is small-ish, and you are prepared to upload it here, I will convert it for you.

Once you have the fla, then we can get to the next bit - editing the pictures....

You should really ask your client to send you the source file, FLA, so that you can update the images and create a new SWF rather than trying to convert the SWF into FLA?

Agreed. That's the best solution... (always better to edit the original fla) and I encourage you to pursue that avenue first.

But... if that's not working for you for some reason, my 'plan b' is still in place.
