I have tried it also, and I agree, it works well. One thing is not so 
good though. When you launch it and tells it to look through the entire 
computer for images, it actuallt finds every image on the server. That 
is a lot. I want it only to find images within the students home-folders.

Does anyone know a solution for this?
