Not likely. Without using eBook Publisher, it would mean that you would have do all the font metric calculations and page dissections that IT does to create the .imp. Now that would be like re-inventing the wheel!

However, we are looking to create a .imp DIRECTLY from a set of images/pictures (and little text/styles). This has already been done by the togoWare Photo Album program, but unfortunately, no source code exists, as it is commercial software.

But once you extract the .html/images/styles (see ConvertIMP; it can do this now) you can use perl scipts (like those here) to use the COM/OLE interface with the eBook Publisher's .dll. This doesn't use the eBook Publisher GUI at all.
