Depending on how you do it, it is possible to actually import image
data into a stack using a reference. For example, this:
put URL "http://www.example.com/someImage.gif" into image "myImage"
It will download the image data from the remote file and put it
permanently into the stack. It would work the same way with a local
put URL "binfile:/folder/someImage.gif" into image "myImage"
To just reference the external file, set the filename property:
set the filename of image "myImage" to "/folder/someImage.gif"
