"Import image as control“ will put a copy of the image file into your stack, 
so there is no reference to the file on disk anymore.

Do like this:
1. Set the filename of your image to the modified file on disk
2. Then later use the message box:
put url("binfile:" & the filename of img "Your image here“) into img "Your image here“
