My assumption is that, just as changing an object's top property 
automatically changes other related properties (eg: 
topLeft,bottomRight, loc, etc.), changing an image's text property will 
automatically change imageData and other "text-related" properties of 
the image.  I'm a few days away from testing this issue myself.
