Hi Steve,

Usually this is due to a default value in Publish Settings, which is in the
file menu:

Once you're at that panel, choose the Flash tab. There's a "JPEG Quality"
slidebar.  Slide it up to 100%.  The default is 80%, and it looks like about
20%.  It's lamer than a bug, it's much lamer than a feature, it's a Default

Hope thaz all it is.
