from a previous email:

put into:
put image "foo" into image "bar"

This will empty (grey) the image "bar", when the original image is a 
referenced image (contains something in the "filepath").
If the Image "foo" is an imported image, or a reference to another 
image within the stack, then this will copy the image. Thus, when you 
delete the image "foo" then image "bar" will remain unchanged. If the 
lockLoc of "bar" is true, then the image will scale to the size of 
"bar", otherwise it will resize to the size of the original image.
