How to Resize an SWF


The output format for Adobe Flash presentations is Shockwave Format (SWF). Include multimedia presentations such as Flash animations on your site to provide your users with a more dynamic visiting experience. SWFs are embedded into HTML pages with Adobe-specific code. The code contains size attributes, usually in the originally created size. Use these values to resize your SWF.

  • Launch an HTML or text editor and open your Web page.

  • Type the new height and width values into the SWF embed code, ensuring you use proportionate values unless you want to distort the SWF display. As an example:

    <object width="250" height="250">

    <param name="movie" value=" myswf.swf">

    <embed src=" myswf.swf" width="250" height="250" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="" ></embed>


  • Save the file and navigate to it in an Internet browser to test the result.
