You can also use the "Save a copy of the image in the file" option when
linking images. Perhaps someone could figure out if it's possible to set
that property using VBA after the fact. The setting may only be available
when inserting the image.

Aside:
File format separator on PC: \ (backslash)
File format separator on Mac: : (colon)

In VBA, you can get around this difference by using the
Application.PathSeparator object. I've done quite a bit of VBA development
between Office:Windows and Office:Mac 2011.
