Converting embedded images

The BlackBerry® Composer can convert embedded images in the .swf file format to separate image files that are referenced in the .svg file.

You can convert an image in a .swf file to a .png file and insert a reference to it in the .svg. The converted image file is assigned a name based on the name of the .svg file and a counter value. For example, if the .svg file is named movie.svg, the fifth converted image is named movie00005.png.

The Adobe® Flash® authoring tool imports .gif, .png, and .bmp file formats. It internalizes image formats and embeds them in the .swf file upon export.

To specify in which folder to save converted image files, use the -d <imagedir> command-line option.
