Thanks for the quick response.

I have some questions about your code, because it does not fullfill all 
my wishes.

The command \inmargin now correctly puts its text on the correct side on 
even and odd pages. But i would like to have the same behaviour for the 
figures too. In a longer script, TeX should know, if the margin image 
has to be placed left or right. So 'inright' or 'inleft' is not an 
option. And 'margin' does not work ... (the image is placed mostly 
outside the page).
In your code, the long image on the second page does not start in the 
left margin, as desired.

%--------
% output=pdf
\setuppapersize[A4][A4]

\setuplayout
  [%width=middle,
   backspace=.75in,
   curspace=2.55in,
   leftmargin=.50in,
   margindistance=.25in,
   rightmargin=2.3in]

\setuppagenumbering[alternative={doublesided}]

\starttext

The very first page with a small image in the (bigger) margin.

\placefigure
  [margin]{a margin image}
  {\framed[width=\marginwidth,height=3cm]{image}}

\input tufte

And now a larger image in the text and margin

\placefigure
  [here,inright]{a text+margin image}
  {\framed[width=1.2\textwidth,height=3cm]{image}}

\inmargin{Tufte text} \input tufte \page

The second page  with a small image in the (bigger) margin.

\placefigure
  [margin]
  {a margin image}
  {\framed[width=\marginwidth,height=3cm]{image}}

\input tufte

And now a larger image in the text and margin

\placefigure
  [here,inleft]
  {a text+margin image}
  {\framed[width=1.2\textwidth,height=3cm]{image}}

\inmargin{Tufte text} \input tufte \page
%--------



Any help appreciated
