This only launches Squeak. Mac users are used to opening *.image files by 
drag-n-drop on the Squeak app. If there are only a few images, the following 
steps will create a desktop button to launch an image directly:

1. Right click on Desktop, click on "Create Launcher..."
2. Enter Name: "My Development Image"
            Command: "squeak path-to-my.image"
3. Click on Icon and pick a good graphic for your desktop button.
4. Click OK.

A button will now appear on your desktop. Clicking it will open the image in 
squeak directly.
