Hi Jasmine,

Anything you see in square brackets like [Image] is usually metadata
and you can usually work out what is going on in you collection format
statements by looking at the doc.xml file and finding the metadata you
are trying to display.
You would usually look at a 'view source' of the page that greenstone
outputs to get an idea of what is going on.

Try looking for [Image] [assocfilepath] and [sc.AccessionNumber]in your doc.xml

BTW curly brackets {} and underscores _ indicate stuff dynamically
generated by the greenstone runtime

It might be worth building the image-e demo collection to confirm that
works for you. (if you haven't already)

Sorry if I am only giving you hints - I am a little short of spare
time so can only point you in the best direction I can think of.

I am CC'ing this to the list in case anyone else can give better
guidance for this problem. If you work it out..post your solution to
the list - making image collections is popular and someone is likely
to appreciate your work.

Regards,

Stephen
