We've all had this problem. We've captured an image and implemented a deployment solution and all works well. However as time moves on the deployment process takes longer and longer as updates are being applied. We then "bite the bullet" and capture a new image with all current updates installed, and we start again.
Those days are over. With Config Mgr 2012 you can now add updates directly to the image. Part 17 of my guide describes the process.
Navigate to Software Library and select the required image. Click Schedule Updates.
Select the updates that you require to be installed into the image. Note that you can filter by system architecture.
Choose "As soon as possible" (or you can schedule the task if the image is in use). Tick to "Continue on Error" and to "Update DP with the image"
Verify your choices and click Next to continue
The task has now been queued. Click Close to finish

Image has been updated. My image was updated in 10 minutes.
You can carry out this task as frequently as you like (perhaps every couple of months).
