Long load times

If the image itself doesn't have to be password protected, you could  
save it in the another stack which in kept in the same folder as the  
main stack, since this will only contain the image, it need not be  
password protected. Then load this stack at run time, get the image  
from the custom property and store in the custom property of the main  
stack. If the main stack gets re-written at run time and the image  
changes, you will obviously need to update the new stack with the  
latest copy of the image.

Hope this Helps

All the Best
