I use a scrolling group that contains images (one for each PMG).  Are you
talking about taking a screenshot of all the PNGs together in the group?
Something like:
  import snapshot from rect (rect of grp imgGroup) of grp imgGroup

Also, I just tried a quick test and importing a snapshot works fine when
capturing a region that extends beyond the stack window, so if all you PNGs
don't fit in the window comfortably, you should be able to capture them
