Hi Edgar,  thank for the code , I tried it and I like the SelectedPictures class, from
there I will do what you said ' find other way'.  But I still believe that BookMorph
is really interesting for Squeak so may be we need to add your code to BookMorph,
and even to complete it with  the 'Background Loader with Preview' from Stephan B.
Wessels, which I discovered yesterday on SqueakMap, and which 'Provides a
previewer for images that can be loaded as the desktop'.

I think I will (I need time) on this because I use a lot Projects
and BookMorphs and the combination of both is really interesting for 'active'
presentations. I use also Connectors from Ned and I really believe that Connectors
need too a way to preview images on disk, and even preview project stored on disk
before loading them.  So to much packages or morphs.. need these
functionnality... these must be integrated eventually in the base image, or the full.
They must be part of Squeak.

Thank again Edgar for the code I really appreciate it.

:) I don't really understand 'of unnamed M app)...

This is interesting...and it would be simple I think to add Swiki and SmallWiki? Is
this solution released  somewhere ?
