Before running this script, you should have created and selected one or more image frames.
Run the script, after which the script informs you of your selection number, then asks for a 

Images are loaded from your chosen directory, and frame size adjusted to 300 points width, and
height adjusted proportionally according to the image size (if you have PIL).
The script will quit either when you run out of selected frames or run out of images in the
selected directory.

HINT: Using the Outline dialog can facilitate frame selection, especially when you are selecting
frames on more than one page. The order of selection also matters, changing the order of frames
to receive images.
