Any main stack that starts with 'rev' is considered part of the IDE  
environ, thus Livecode will invisibly add it to the stacksInUse.  Your  
substack is not part of a such a stack, so is not considered a library  
resource.

Your stack named 'revKeithImgLib' will appear in the drop down menu,  
but the import to another stack won't be done unless you write a  
script to do so.  Try using "New Library..." btn and see how the  
result becomes an IDE resource.

Also, if you look at the script of the revImageLibrary stack, you will  
probably find the answer to your single question and many more (such  
as how you could automate import from a folder, for example)

Hope this helps
