Flash can be one of the most impressive additions to any website but it can also be one of the most sluggish and bandwidth hogging.
Flash Optimizer is designed to make Flash less bloated and faster to load in your website. It's a simple tool for web designers and Flash developers, allowing you to reduce the size of your SWF files by up to 60-70%. Flash Optimizer does this using a range of algorithms of vectors, shapes, morphing, fonts and other optimizations.
The Flash Optimizer user interface is simple enough for those without Flash programming knowledge to use. When you open Flash Optimizer you're presented with two types of compression configuration - simple and advanced, the latter offering more than 50 separate tweaks and adjustments. The latest version of Flash Optimizer is even simpler to use than before too because you can open multiple tabs according to how many files you want to compress. Flash Optimizer does more than compress graphics and animations though - it also allows you to compress sound which can constitute a large part of any Flash file.
Flash Optimizer is a simple utility that may or may not speed up the time it takes for your Flash animations and graphics to load in your website.
