Balancing image quality and SWF output size in CP 5 – 1

Adobe Captivate

In this two part blog series we look at information that you can use in Adobe Captivate 5 to parallel decide the quality of an image and the SWF file size and bring forth the differences between the publishing of images in CP 4 and CP 5. Size of SWF output files is an important consideration for many content developers as it takes longer time for end users to download larger files.

E-learning Development: Selecting the Right Audio, Video, and Image Format

CommLab India

When developing an eLearning course using rapid authoring tools, you should know which format is supported by the tool to import audio files, videos, and images. In Captivate 9, we can import only these image (Shift+Ctrl+M) formats: JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, ICO, EMF, WMF, POT, POTX, and PICT. JPEG: (Joint Photographic Experts Group) Possible to reduce the size and quality of the original image. ICO: A format for icons of multiple sizes and color depths.

First Reflections on Version 11.5.0.

Adobe Captivate

File size of SVG’s tend to be smaller, compared with bitmap images, and moreover they are excellent for responsive project due to their vector nature. Size of the SVG: about 75Kb. Same for the clickable area: can be limited to the image itself (provided you have an image with transparent pixels of course – no JPEG but GIF or PNG). The other Preview methods are all still based on a temporary SWF output (except Play Slide, which is NOT a preview method).
