Short answer - just the same as with LC :-)

It wasn't there in the initial versions of LC, but for quite a ong time 
now the standard image functions have worked. Here's a quick (tested - 
on on-rev/sage) demo with an image I happened to have:


import paint from file "images/ardenstur.jpg"
put the name of the last image into t
set the name of t to "Im1"

put the name of img "Im1" &CR
put the width of img "Im1" & cr

and it works as you'd expect.
