Thank you for your help.  I think I understand what you're trying to do.
I'll give it a try and if I have any more problems you'll probably here back
from me.

Since you got the "print this page" JS all set up already, things
aren't really too difficult actually... :)

Just write a new script that goes like this (here's the algorithm):
 - on user click, open up a new window
 - on the page, load up *only* that image
 - use the onload() to print out the page using ur existing script
 - close the window

How it will work, and the *illusion* ;-)...
  Since the image is already in the page itself, it is already loaded
  in the browser's cache/memory. So, when you use the above to open up
  the page with just the image, it will be instantaneously. Then, you
  just give the print command as usual and close the window. Thus, the
  window should just flash on and then dissapear, the time that it
  stays on the screen limited only to the speed at which the machine
  of the user is able to print it and spool it.
