The create command does create a new object, which it doesn't sound like
you need to do. Changing the filename property of an existing image will
change the image it displays, so all you need is a single, permanent
image object that a script can update to contain different image
content. Assuming you have an image object named "holder":
answer file empty
put it into thisPict
set the filename of image "Holder" to it
show image "holder"
wait 3 secs
hide image "Holder"
