The Fm12 package feature includes all the files in the book and all the
images in an images subfolder. It does not get images referenced from an
adjacent folder (I have one called Resources that includes \images with the
master page images).
I normally use FrameScript and the ArchiveFM.FSO free script at
http://framescript.com/framescript-6-script-library/
It zips up all the files and images in use, maintaining their folder
structure. For example, if you have one image in a folder on your desktop,
and everything else is 19 subfolders down, it will get all 20 levels to
make sure it includes that one orphan.
This feature is very useful for collecting all the referenced images that
are used, and not the rest. I run ArchiveFM.fso once to get a clean copy,
then I delete all images in the original folder and copy the archived ones
into the images folder - this way I delete all the unused images but keep
all those that I am actually using.
