Suggestion: Make an "upload" page. Something inside the pwd protected page
that would allow him to upload many files. They will all upload to the same
directory, so the images will be there. Tell him that he has to have the
images in the same directory in his computer when he creates the file, this
should not be a problem.

In the "upload" page, to avoid further discussion, you can even call one of
the upload fields "Word document" and the others images. You're just using
HTML input fields, really, and uploading them to a specific directory.

That should do it. If it does, 10% is my going rate, hehehe ;-)

"Peace of mind isn't at all superficial, really," I expound. "It's the whole
thing. That which produces it is good maintenance; that which disturbs it is
poor maintenance. What we call workability of the machine is just an
objectification of this peace of mind. The ultimate test is always your own
serenity." - Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.
