      Do I need to look into using a different program if I need to use an API from GitHub?  Is there an easy way to do that, if needed?  Like how in Blend, I can always open up my work in VS.

      Constraining the images to be contained in an image library seems quite a limitation.
      Personal Libraries lock you into a single User.
      Public Libraries solve that issue but are limited to a single drive. Often the C Drive, often quite full.
      Much more flexible to have an option to point to any file location. That way I could access images from a large cheap external USB drive or fileserver.
