Have you looked at the Image Library under the development menu?  I imported a set of icons that I use across several applications.  From the library, you can place either an image or a button with it's icon set to an image on any card in your app.  I don;t think you can edit the image from within the library so you'd have to edit it's original file then re-import the image set.
