Flash: White artifacts in transparent Photoshop files (PSD)

The other day I discovered that all the Adobe Photoshop files I had imported into Macromedia Flash contained white artifacts (jagged edges) where they were supposed to be transparent (alpha channel fade). This problem was remedied by saving each Photoshop image as a PNG (Portable Network Graphic). I also noticed the colors were more accurate when saving them as PNG's. PSD's imported into Flash tend to be washed out and less saturated.
