JPEG deblocking is a feature that has been available since the release of Adobe Flash CS4 Professional. It is an option in the publish settings that reduces the appearance of the common artifacts found in highly compressed JPEG files.
This option reduces typical artifacts resulting from JPEG compression, such as the common appearance of 8 × 8-pixel blocking of the image. Some JPEG images may lose a small amount of detail when this option is selected in the Publish Settings dialog box.
To make highly compressed JPEG images look smoother when they are exported from Flash, select the Enable JPEG deblocking option in the Publish Settings dialog box.
For more information, see the section titled Specify publish settings for SWF files in the Flash documentation.
