I have this in a button on a card with a field named "Place". 

on mouseUp pMouseBtnNo
    breakpoint
    put url ("http://maps.google.com/maps/api/staticmap?center=" & fld "place" & "&zoom=8&size=512x512&maptype=roadmap&sensor=false") into someimage
    put someimage into image 1
end mouseUp

someimage now contains graphic data alright, but the command "put someimage into image 1" returns this error

 Runtime error	Friday, March 11, 2011 10:05:00 AM
Error 89:	 Chunk: no such object 
  Why?
Error 95:	 Chunk: can't find object to store into 
Error 466:	 put: can't set destination 
Error 241:	 Handler: error in statement 
Error at	char 30 of line 6 in handler mouseUp
Code:	"Image1" (=1)
How I got here:
	put someimage into image 1
