Possible to import an image into AS3 without PHP?

In actionscript 3 is it possible to allow a user to upload an image into a flash movie at runtime without POSTing to a PHP script? I dont want to export the image or save it anywhere I just want to be able to display the image in the flash movie

fingers crossed


Yes, you can if you are targeting Flash Player 10. Use the FileReference.load() method. Once the file is loaded, you can access to the raw data as a ByteArray, using the data property. In flex you can pass that to an Image component. In plain Actionscript, you can use the Loader.loadBytes() method to the display the loaded image.

This feature has just been added in Flash Player 10 / Flash CS4, so if you can use that you can do it.
