I played with this some more and have discovered the problem.  "Put 
image X into image Y" does NOT work if image X is derived from a 
snapshot, but DOES work if it is an imported JPEG.  This is true for the 
beta 2.0 version of Rev as well (mac OS 10.15).  It says in the docs 
that the snapshot format is proprietary, so I suppose it has something 
to do with that.
I use a lot of snapshots, so I think I'll stick with setting the icons 
of buttons for imported images and setting the fileNames for referenced
