Allow in file image resources

Allow a file package to contain referenced and unreferenced images that could be swapped dynamically. Using Shape.ChangePicture (and a ShapeSheet function of course) the currently unused ChangePictureFlag parameter could support ‘local’ in-package images as a source:

• VisChangePictureFlags.visChangePictureSearchFileSystem
• VisChangePictureFlags.visChangePictureSearchPackage

Under this scenario, the first would be the default, as per existing functionality, and the second would enable an existing image (in the ‘media’ folder within the file package) to be referenced by name.

This would allow a ShapeSheet function to toggle through a range of images with no code.

From a UI perspective, this implies the addition of an image picker dialog to populate the file package with additional source images.
