Image woes

Hi folks,

I'm working on a quick and dirty little project and am using Trevor Devore's 
"empDB" sample project as the basis.  The problem I'm having is that the 
stack I need to use must have tool buttons with images.  Now the problem is 
that Trevor uses the "last image" variable to retrieve the data from a 
custom property.  The result is that the first card in the stack loses the 
plot and the image ends up taking over the entire card - instead of sizing 
itself nicely inside the button.  This only happens with the first card - 
the subsequent cards size the image perfectly.  I'd prefer to store the 
image in the card in this instance but that's proving to be somewhat 
difficult given the behaviour of the first card.  Is there something I'm 
missing with the "last Image" variable or indeed the custom property?  I'm 
not sure how to retrieve the data directly from the custom property and size 
it, there doesn't seem to be anything attached to it that I can use to 
resize.  Of course I could be completely wrong on that.
