If you only want to use Gem and not framestien, open
the MultiImage.pd file in the Pix folder of the Gem

posted a question to this list when I was a student, I
got a great answer and patch containing the solution
only to find out that my lecturer was also subsribed
to the list! Be warned! Good luck with the assignment!
