Images and Standalone Build

Hi, If I understand you for distribution it is usually best to provide 
the images with references from a folder outside the app. But if there 
are only a few and you want the app to be by itself than go ahead and 
embed them in the app.

It is really nice to be able to update a program that needs a minor 
image change or icon change with out having to rebuild the app and if 
you send the app to someone else it is easy for them to update things 
this way. The same holds true for stacks. If you have stacks that can 
be replaced then it is easy to update.

I don't copy files in the standalone builder myself so that part I am 
not sure about.
