    I have long had the need to make animated banners but at my age and with my lack of energy learning Flash MX 2004 was just too much effort.

    I was very pleasantly surprised when I found I could make autorun presentations using Keynote and save them as Flash files. It was extremely easy to make Flash animated banners except... The minimum page size in Keynote is far bigger than a web banner.

    Somebody told me I could easily reduce the size on the HTML page and this does work great but it seems a bit clumsy producing banners that are about 4 times actual size then reducing them via HTML. It would be far better if I could find a way to reduce the size of the Flash SWF files. Does anyone know a simpke way to do this? I tried opening them in Flash MX but couldn't find a way to scale them.

    I think what Skywoolf wants is to produce flash banners in actual 1:1 to reduce filesize, right? If so, since you used Keynote to produce it, perhaps there's a setting for you to reduce the size from there on export.

    If your SWF file contains bitmap images like jpegs and gifs, reducing it via the software that made it is the only way. If its got more vector graphics in it, it won't matter as it'll always have the same filesize whether you enlarge or not.
