I need help using Gifs in Flash with the download time

I need help using Gifs in Flash with the download time

I have made a Flash movie which incorporates about 6 gifs that are relatively detailed photographs. My problem is that the download time is so huge that it is unusable. Am I doing something wrong? I have tries to reduce the GIFs which works but you lose the quality of them which is no good. I have converted them to symbols so that where they are used again it speeds up the download time. Any thoughts???!!!

RE: I need help using Gifs in Flash with the download time

Use the trace bitmap function in the modify menu (find out a good compromise for your pix, you'll have to experiment a bit...)this will vectorize that pix.
then turn them into symbols if you want.
