Below code works in a foundation store where the images are located at:

Just create a testpage and put the code below in, replace <STICK HERE
CODE> with one of your item codes.  It should show up twice, because 
CODE> there
are two ways below to do it. Also check the following variables: 

IMAGE_DIR       /standard/images        Directories and Paths
SAMPLEHTML      /www/htdocs/standard    Directories and Paths
SAMPLEURL       http://its.a.server.nl/standard    Directories and Paths

[fly-list code="<STICK HERE ITEM CODE>"] 

<img src="[if type=file term="images/items/[item-code].jpg"]
[/if] Border="0"> 

[if type=file term="images/items/[item-code].jpg"]
<img src="items/[item-code].jpg">
<img src="items/1sna.jpg">




Thank you Gert.  I tried both of these and had same effect, only showed
the default items/1sna.jpg image.  So I tried changing the typ=file to
type=image and then it displays the item-code image, but will not
display the items/1sna.jpg default image for the items that have no
image in the items/ folder.

Any suggestions?
