An IMG tag cannot have 'target' atribute unless it's a link. In your case it's not a link. Hence target will not work. If you want to make the image as a link, targetted to right, replace

<img src=../$jpgfile target="right">
      with
<A HREF='something.html' target='right'><img src=../$jpgfile></A>

Yes, you can do it with javascript.  You can do the following to achive your goal (the code assumes that you have a frame named "right"):

print &PrintHeader;
print<<"print_tag";
<html>
<head>
<script language="JavaScript">
<!--
top.right.location="../$jpgfile";
//-->
</script>
</head>
</html>
print_tag

Ok, good. If I copy & past your code in a PERL script, it is going to work provided that there is a frame called right. Is that right ?

I have n't seen a javascript in a perl program before. I hope that is feasible. Thanks

Yes - I tested my code before pasting it here.
My main html page looked like this:
<html>
<frameset cols="50%,50%">
    <frame name="left" src="left.html">
    <frame name="right" src="right.html">
</frameset>

the left.html file had something like this:
<html>
<form method=post action="test.pl">
<input type=submit value="submit">
</form>
</html>

And finally my test.pl file contained the code that I pasted in my answer.
Hope, this helps,
-Aleks.
