If I understand correctly what you are trying to achieve, then I  
think it is better to write a drag command instead, that recognizes  
the various image files. Then you can locate the images with  
something like Launchbar of Quicksilver, which are in my opinion  
better suited for the job, and just drag the image into the document,  
and then an appropriate snippet will be created. You can even go as  
far as having it automatically set dimensions, or something like  
that, using info from the image.

You might also want to have a look at the ImageBrowser bundle.
