Just a question, is there a shortcut for importing a single image input?

Use case: I forgot to import a certain image input to bring up during production. When the moment is there to show the image, it would be nice to hit a single button on my Stream Deck that automatically opens up an Open File dialog. Navigate quickly to the place where the image is and click Open. The input is then added to my production and I can put it live.

That results in these actions:
- Stream Deck Button
- Navigate to image
- Open
- Click to set image live

The current way would be these actions (when not using the little arrow button next to Add Input):
- Click on Add Input
- Click Image
- Click Browse
- Navigate to image
- Open
- Click to set image live

Is there a shortcut for adding inputs to make the current way of importing more efficient?

@ guidogast

You can add a Shortcut to add a specific Image file, but there is no Shortcut to open a folder and/or browse for one.

Have a shortcut call a script that contains (or use the ScriptStartDynamic containing)

Code:
Process.Start("explorer.exe", "Path of your file/Folder")


locate the image and simply drag it into your vMix GUI
