Klaus,
I don't think I get it. 2 questions:

How is......
Set the filename of your image to the modified file on disk
Different from.......
put url("binfile:" & the filename of img "Your image here“) into img "Your image here“

This is for a mobile app. So even though the stack is carrying the weight of the imported image I still need to put the original imported image into the copy file pane of the standalone setting if I want change it and then return to the original image? 

Thanks!!

"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“
