But, the question was:

What’s the Best extension to Export button from Adobe Photoshop to Adobe flash?

GIF file is 8-bit file and shows only 256 colors

Of course the best is a PNG because it has 24-bit color and can show 16777216 colors.

If you want to have an excellent Flash colors then the PNG is the ULTIMATE !!!

If the graphic has no transparency (eg: it does not have rounded corners and is not see-through) then you can get the best results with JPG. Flash does its own JPG compression internally, so even a PNG will eventually be compressed when you create the SWF from Flash. The advantage of using JPG from PHotoshop is that you get direct control over the amount of compression so you can optimize when you use Save For Web and Devices.

In Flash, you have to make sure that you don't recompress that asset. You'll look at the properties for the flash document and the properties for that bitmap that you imported and make sure that it's not set to recompress.

Having said that, if you DO have transparency or some sort of alpha channel needs, then any of the formats mentioned above are suitable. PNG gives you greater bit depth than GIF so is generally better these days, though GIF won't recompress so you can achieve a smaller SWF file size theoretically.

Note that you can also use the TIF file format (TIFF) which does allow for alpha channel (transparency) export. The advantage of TIF over PNG is that is does have some built-in compression options (choose "LZW" compression for best results) so that the asset file size is smaller on disk (won't make a difference within Flash or the SWF though), and it's a completely lossless file format, as is PNG, so your quality will be good.

One last thing: in the document properties, under the Flash tab, you can set your graphics compression options. This has nothing to do with your question but I thought I would mention it anyway. Choose a compression that makes for a nice, small SWF, while keeping your quality up to the standard you would like to maintain. Do some tests. I have found that any quality above 60 yields very good results in Flash Player 10+

Bets regards,

Actually his question was>What’s the Best extension to Export button < button.
I dare say he indicates a button he has made
Gif  or PNG will do fine.
I used gif to make these buttons in paintshop pro
