      Moving images embedded in FM into Bento

      Post

      I have a FM v7/8 db with embedded images (jpg).

      I am using Bento on desktop and accessing with Bento iPhone (obviously thru a Mac).

      I want to see FM data thru Bento, but when I move over info, I only get the metadata.

      Is it possible to extract/move the images?

          Thank you for your post.

           

          Bento only import CSV, TSV, Numbers and Excel files.  None of those formats include images.  Therefore, you will have to export each Container image individually to a file.  After all the image files are created, you will have to manually drag each image file into the Media fields for each record within Bento.

           

          Let me know if you need clarification for any of the above steps.
