again not sure I get you right 8-)

But in this case (different images on different cards as a background)
I would store the images in custom properties of each card and "load" 
them into the image object of the "background" group:

on opencard
  put the cStoredCardImage of this cd into omg "your background imnage here" of grp "your be here"
end opencard

This way you would not have to deal with more than ONE image object :-)
