Was the original image transparent?
you can import your images into flash with transparency, using photoshop or other image maniplulation application when you save in photoshop , save for web , and select PNG24 and tick transparency, when you import the image it will be transparent.
If the original wasent transparent, you can make it transparent by cutting out the area you dont need and leaving it with nothing in the background.

LOL the wonderful world of PNG's and Flash. I remember when i first discoverd this. I haven't made a web graphic in flash sence. Just be sure to go into your library and right click on the PNG and go to Properties. Then make sure the PNG is reconized as PNG not JPG. Flash has a tendacy to read PNG's like JPG and makes them blurry.

well , actually its best to let flash compress the PNG file as a jpg in order to keep the size down on your swf. Usually no more than 75 to 80 percent is needed to get no visual loss in your image.

search the forums to find methods on how to control your PNG to JPG compression in flash.

or just use Fireworks.
seriously tho, I have never had that problem. I rarely use PS, and I have never had that problem. I use png's almost exclusively, and don't go into image properties unless I want to increase the compression, and I don't have the fuzzy image problems...
I wonder if PS adds some sort of info that Fireworks doesn't...

it's probably because your default publish image compression in flash is set at 80 like mine, so i dont have to change anything as well.

sometimes, I do, but I take care in preparing my images before they get into flash, so that there is no loss of image quality when I publish.
Flash has changed the way it handles images from 4 to 5 then to MX.
I still think the image probs you guys are finding is because you are going from an Adobe product to a MM product.

IT depends on mine. If it is a larger sized PNG it almost always comes out fuzzy unless i go change it. If it is smaller then it is ready to go.
seriously Sintax... try Fireworks for all of your web destined work. I'll bet you will save an hour a day...
