Thanks.  This correction did not work for me out of the box.  I had to
add a call to expand-file-name for getting a file name which worked on
my system for some reason.  I also re-arranged your second (unless ...)
to an (if ...):

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(defun fp-org-image (name)
  "Insert a link to an already existing image, or else to a screenshot.
The screenshot is either taken to the given non-existing file name,
or added into the given directory, defaulting to the current one."
  ;; FIXME: Should limit to '("pdf" "jpeg" "jpg" "png" "ps" "eps")
  ;; which is org-export-latex-inline-image-extensions.
  (interactive "GImage name? ")
  (when (file-directory-p name)
    (setq name (concat
                  (concat (file-name-as-directory name)
                           "." "-"
  (unless (file-exists-p name)
    (if (file-writable-p name)
          (message "Taking screenshot into %s" name)
          (call-process "import" nil nil nil name)
          (message "Taking screenshot...done"))
      (error "Cannot create image file")))
  (insert (concat "[[" name "]]"))

This now appears to work (for me).

Thanks again,
