Flashloaded have recently introduced a neat new component called imageLoader. This component provides a simple way in which to load and manipulate jpeg images and SWF files in Flash MX or Flash MX 2004 (both Standard and Professional), without any coding. You just drag and drop the component onto the stage, enter the parameters and the image/swf will be preloaded and displayed in the designated area. Some of the features include:

* Load jpeg images or SWFs without any coding
* Built-in preloader
* Automatically scale images to fit the predefined area
* Option to maintain aspect ratio when scaling images
* Live preview shows the loaded image while designing
* Trigger an action after loading an image
* Full ActionScript reference
* Only 2Kb
