No, you have no control.. it is an automated system.
I recommend you do a backup using another software. You can archive to a USB drive on the TC.. and keep that.. but you really want it more accessible I suspect than that.

No. Not with Time Machine at least.
If you tell Time Machine to backup the external then you will have it.
Or you can manually copy it to another disk for storage outside of Time Capsule/TimeMachine.

Doing anything with your photo if they are stored on a Time Capsule disk will be slow because if the network. It is good to store a copy there for protection against lose but not to work on them. I think that is what he was refering to when he said you really want them more accessible.

Yes, as Allan said, if you have the files locked up in a non-current Time Machine backup, recovery of the files is a long drawn out procedure.. Get a USB drive and copy the files/library straight to the disk. Then anytime you needed them you can get them.. and remember this is still a backup, you need all the files in at least two places.
