Hi Bill,

Thanks for your suggestion.

My design was influenced by the desire to distribute the standalone 
as a single file to keep the individual images inaccessable to the viewer.

Would it help to:

         * Set images' alwaysBuffer to false?

         * Replace Photo Index Card's buttons with images whose 
imageData is set to the imageData of the thumbnail image?

         * ??
