More Imagedata Issues

All,

I've spent a little time this morning trying to further reduce the 
scope of my ignorance...

1.  I created a stack and imported the wininfo.gif and wininfo2.gif 
images from the Rev Image Library, and duplicated the first
     From the Message Box, "(the text of image 3) = (the text of image 
1)" puts true

2. set the imageData of image 3 to the imageData of image 2
     From the Message Box, "(the text of image 3) = (the text of image 
1)" puts false

3. set the imageData of image 3 to the imageData of image 1
     From the Message Box, "(the text of image 3) = (the text of image 
1)" puts FALSE

So pardon the ramblings of an ignorant foole; but isn't the crux of 
the issue the fact that people must work with imageData because there 
is no editor for rle format images?

If I want to create/edit JPEGs, gifs, PICTs, etc., there are tools to 
do so.  If I understood Jeanne correctly, people edit imageData 
because it is easier than attempting to manipulate rle-format.

Lacking an rle editor, an imageData to rle format converter would 
allow the user to work with imageData but reset the image text 
instead of the imageData.

In my personal version of Revolution, imageData would be read-only.
