Not exactly, but just as good.

For each graphic you need to change:

1. Open the .bmp source file and make the changes.

2. Copy the entire image to the Windows clipboard (Ctrl+C).

3. Open the corresponding .shg file.

4. Paste the contents of the clipboard "over" the existing image.
(The hotspot definitions are unchanged.)

Later versions of SHED offer a more graceful way of doing this (using a new menu item), but this method worked 6 years ago and should still work today.

Good luck!
