You will need to add some symbols to the generated symbol file that
reference gif or png thumbnails of the jpeg images (make them type
PIXMAP). Then they can be used as point symbols. If you make up a
special html query template for your application that has an image tag
for the corresponding full jpeg file, it can be displayed when you
query the point. Your query template would have to be set in the layers
that had used the pixmap symbols and placed relative to the map file in
the generated gmapfactory application.
This has definitely been done before; maybe some other users can
provide detailed information. You could also look through the archives
for the mapserver-users list as this is not maplab specific.
