OK : )

Thanks to the following Help I fixed all my problem

STEP 1: (Resetting the previous Image IDS--instant

By Chip:

Try starting with a high 6 digit number for the first
you import, then add 1 to it and set the next image's
ID to it.

I think this should solve your problem.

OR create a button after you've loaded all your images
and set the 
script of it to:

on mouseUp
   put 123456 into tID
   repeat with y = 1 to the number of cards in this
     go cd y
     repeat with x = 1 to the number of images on this
       set the id of img x to tID
       add 1 to tID
     end repeat
   end repeat
end mouseUp

STEP 2: (New Imported Images IDs)

BY  Thomas McGrath III:

Change Image ID's on immediately on import (espically
File imports)

Change icon IDs in buttons that contain the graphic or
use the short name property
set the icon of button "mybutton" to {imageID |

STEP 3: (Where to set the New Imported Images IDs)

BY Jim Lyon
To change the id of the new imported Image open The
property inspector and make the change by (adding 1 to
the last number or setting to some large number)

Step 4: (I Think...)
And Thanks, Xavier we have all had similar problems
with that pesky send button.
