I'm not sure what kind of an info you can use when putting images to the stage but this would be one way: make txt file with info like this:

and then load it to the ActionScript file for the tiles for the letter "A". Then split the text to the array from linebrakes and use 2d arrays to load and position images to the stage related to the info in that map. Just let the number 1 represent the black color and 0 the empty background.

You mean one of those gigantic images were lots of images are tiled together to form one big image when viewed zoomed out?

@henke37 yes that is wat i need. but i dont' want to zoom in or out.... I have done by creating a grid of tiles.. there will be a bitmap object of the Letter. and each tile will check if it is colliding with the shape. if so i will add the tile to the corresponding grid column and if not will not add anything... i don't know is it a good logic... if you can help me out i will be gratefull...
