This is a shot in the dark since I don't know exactly your goals, but  
could you simply have a Quicktime movie with all the images and  
control it to jump to different frames? Or play a section at a certain  
speed?

Trevor's external would allow you to replace the background image at  
will (by copying an image and pasting it into the movie as a new  
track, then setting it to the background).
