Flash blurs PNGs

If you export with Flash 8 settings you wont get a PNG that blurs, however if you are designing an advertisement you probably will want to export using a lower Flash Player for better compatibility. Usually I export for Flash Player 6 that way I get the benefit of the compression and its quite old (think 2002ish), so many users will have it. The way to get around the PNG blurring is to put a 1 pixel transparent border around the image and then save it. In Photoshop or Fireworks this can be easily done by adding 2 pixels to the height and width of the image and letting the image center.
