This works with Mac OS X and the Pharo 1-click to provide a selection of
images kept in the .app directory.
tell application "Finder"
set myAlias to folder "Resources" of folder "Contents" of
application file "Pharo-1.0.app" of folder "Desktop" of folder
"lawsonenglish" of folder "Users" of startup disk
open (choose file of type "image" default location myAlias as alias)
