I have just started in on Flash. I fulfill designs for a very creative art
director who uses
a lot of airbrushed gradients. I was shocked (excuse pun) to find out that
I had to
use Flash's jpg'ing and couldn't set up my jpgs in photoshop.

Why can't flash jpg a gradient without banding when photoshop can? Why
can't I link or import a file
that has been successfully jpg'ed in another program? or can I? Any help?

I agree with Gary, the flash sites are much too vector looking.

Look at the difference in these backgrounds:
