Hi Guys,

I am wanting to import 359 different images into flash im using cs3 and each image has to be on a new keyframe. Is there any way to do them all at once otherwise I will have to do them one by one. Also it would be good to be able to have them all aligned the same when they get posted to the scene.

Thanks for your help,

The only way to do them all at once is if they are numbered sequentially. e.g. 001.jpg, 002.jpg, 003.jpg, etc, or picture1.jpg, picture2.jpg, picture3.jpg If the file names are not numerically sequential like this it will not work. You would have to rename all the files to be in sequential order, or import them one at a time manually.

For importing sequential files:
Put all your image files in the same folder.
Click the first empty frame on the timeline.
Click File>Import>Import to Stage
Navigate to your image folder.
Select the first image and click OK
When you see this message click yes.

This will add your images to the timeline, one per frame and center them to the stage.

Make sure your document size is at least as large as your largest image.
For numeric sequencing the numbers must be at the end of the file name. i.e. picture001.jpg works, 001picture.jpg will not.
If there are any breaks in the sequence, the import will stop, for example 001.jpg, 002.jpg, 004.jpg, 005.jpg will stop at 002.jpg and not import the last two.
