Go to Bruce Fosters' FrameMaker plugin page and purchase his
Archive plugin. It's shareware, $20, and well worth the money. Since it
copies only the graphics that are actually used in your Frame book,
anything it doesn't copy is redundant/unused, making it easy to figure
out which ones you don't need anymore.

Description of the plugin:

Copies a book to an archive directory and gathers all
documents, referenced graphics, and text insets for that book into the
archive directory. All references in the archived book are relative and
point to documents, graphics, and text insets under the archive
directory.

Good luck.

Of course I'm willing to take 'No' for an answer, so long as 'No' was the
answer I was looking for.
