Using bitmap fills

Using the Color panel, you can apply a bitmap image as a fill to a shape. On the Stage here, I have a vector shape. So I'll open the Color panel and then for the Color Type drop-down, I am going to choose Bitmap Fill. So you notice that the shape is filled with a bitmap image, but it doesn't quite line up. So what I am going to do is use the Gradient Transform tool to align the bitmap fill to my shape. So I'll select the Gradient Transform tool in the center of the bitmap fill. I'll click-and-drag to move the bitmap fill to align with shape. And there you have it.

The advantage of that is that your vector path is always editable, so you can continue refining it once you've created. And I can use a JPEG image instead of a PNG File, which will allow me to compress the file to get better file size when I output my movie from Flash.
