Over at Tom's blog, have a look at his work with img2trk. This is something I haven't played with - I've used DAK to manipulate images and get them into the machine, but here's another way.
BTW, I'm getting February's video uploaded. It's a very interesting panel join that almost looks braided, but is kind of like doing worm edging. I'll embed the video, as usual, as soon as it's up.
