Alternatively, If you want to say… Get this realistic to history portrait of George Washington to display on screen.
You could do it entirely programmically.
Just put the “image.jpg” in the same folder or location as the code file that executes the below. Feel free to download the picture for this example and try it yourself.
//Embeds a new image, and gives it a class
//creates a new BitmapData variable that points to our new classes bitmapData
var imageD:BitmapData = new ImageD().bitmapData;
//creates a new bitmap variable that uses our new bitmapData variable
var image:Bitmap = new Bitmap(imageD);
//we can now add "image" to our stage, move it around with x and y, all that fun stuff.
