HI David,

Once you figure out how to cut down the names to something shorter, 
you can just tell read.maimages() to use those short names instead of 
the file names. See ?read.maimages and the names argument:

names: character vector of names to be associated with each array as 
column name. Defaults to removeExt(files).

That way, you'll have the shorter names no matter what.
