Images at back of Mobi file

Can somebody please help me? I have created a mobi book from html using Mobipocket Creator and have attached a css sylesheet and toc.ncx file successfully but when I view the book. Every image that I have placed in the book is duplicated on separate pages at the back of the book. What have I done wrong? I know its probably something incredibly simple but I can't figure it out - please help.

I seem to remember reading somewhere (possibly in these forums) that when you add files in Mobipocket Creator, you shouldn't add the image files that are referred to in the HTML code - as long as the IMG tags are pointing to the correct location for the images, Mobipocket Creator will find them when it builds the MOBI file. It's adding the image files individually as "Content" files that results in them being duplicated at the end of the book, I think. If you've been adding them, try it again but without adding them, and see if that solves the problem, soparch.

That's correct; duplicate images mean that you've added the images to the manifest (the list of files making up the book). Images are located via their URLs; they shouldn't be in the manifest.

I am getting duplicate images/pages when I upload PDFs (picture book) to Mobi and "build." I'm not using HTML. I've downloaded the latest Mobi. Please help
