If you want to ignore a file or folder, you have to tell its *parent*
folder. There are 2 ways to do this:
1. right-click on 'Images' and select 'Add to ignore list' or
2. right click on parent folder, select properties, then add 'Images' to
the svn:ignore value.

But if the 'Images' folder is already under version control, you will
not be able to do that.

I think you are getting confused. If the folder is ignored, then it is
not under version control at all. There is no
svn:IgnoreExceptOnFridayAfternoon property.

If you want to keep the images under version control, but avoid checking
them every time you commit changes to some other source, then maybe you
just need to change your folder structure:

Instead of

You could have

So you commit Source and Images separately.
