Title

Filemaker Image Archive linking to images on a server

Post

 

 

Can filemaker be used as an image archive/catalogue with links to images held on a server? Would it mean having to link each image manually? Could Filemaker just be pointed to a folder and then flow images into container fields automatically?

 

Could this then be linked to an existing filemaker document that exports data to printed Quark pages or perhaps combined in to one filemaker document? The xtags document for Quark that is exported (cleaned or filtered afterwards by an apple script) has the correct pathname (one option for MAC the other for PC) to help Quark locate the images on the server? Quark can be set up to look in a specific folders automatically for images whenthe document is open but it does not provide thumbnails of all the images.
