That's all going to be a bit tedious as the obvious way to effect that
is by having code in the scriptEditor of each image;

Code: Select all

on mouseUp
put the short name of me
end mouseUp

Well, you could also just use the target in the card or stack level script, with the mouseDown or Up event -

Code: Select all

local myLocalVar --< this variable is outside of any handler,
-- and so is available to all handlers from here to the end
-- of the page

on mouseDown
	put the name of the target into myLocalVar
end mouseDown

on mouseUp
	if word 1 of myLocalVar = "image" then  ...-- your code for when an image is clicked...
end mouseUp
Image
