bonjour alex,

very quick answer, you might want to try a combination of
- pix_alpha and of course pix_image to display blended images. you will 
then create an abstraction that holds all what you need for one image 
(with 'receive' objects as arguments).
- dyn~ for creation of a variable number of pictures in your patchwork.
- pyext for the creation and configuration (position, size, etc.) of 
each piece (via ._send method) - here you will have to go for something 
completely different but it's easy.

if you are interested by this combination of objects, i could send you 
some patchs i have bee using.

i noticed some difficulties to display some types of images (heavy 
images or images with low or high w/h ratio), moreover i had some pbs 
with their "initialization" (images are not drawn completely at first) - 
desactivating/reactivating the gem window solved this pb.

a last point, if you want to make animations of still images, you should 
defintely turn to pix_multiimage.
