If each image is taller than the window, a simple down-arrow should do
what you want.  (Isn't that what you see in doc-view?)  If the images
are smaller than the window height, why is such scrolling useful?
Emacs tries very hard not to show partial characters and images; what
you are trying to do works against the very design of redisplay, so it
seems.  What's the rationale?

What is the height of the image?  If it's smaller than these offsets,
Emacs won't let you do that, because you are trying to move point out
of the visible portion of the window.

P.S.  Please don't remove the list from the addressees, I don't think
we should make this a private off-list discussion.  Thanks.
