Seems to work for me (tested a title with 3 images)... 

I just uploaded a title to kdenlive website, called "Hello Marco" with 3 
images in it. The template file is called embeded.kdenlivetitle

Just grab it through the "Settings->Download New Title Template" for a test.

This comes really late for the 0.7.8 release, but I must admit it is really 
fun to be able to share title with images, so If other people think it's ok we 
could decide to add it with an image button on the titler enabling / disabling 
the feature.

One problem I can see is that this can make kdenlive project files become huge 
if some large images are embeded, since the images will be stored both in 
MLT's kdenlivetitle producer and in Kdenlive's DocClipBase properties.

So maybe this feature should only be allowed for .kdenlivetitle files, and 
images would not be embedded in the kdenlive project file.

What do other people think? This also needs Dan's approval for the MLT
