    Newbie - Photo Archive Database



      Newbie - Photo Archive Database


      I have set up a database for our photo archives already.  I have it so there is a low res sample of the photo for each record.  I would like to somehow be able to pull up the original hi res photo from outside FM using the database.  How would I go about doing this?  Thank you!

          If you insert the Photo files into container fields with the "store by reference" option, Filemaker will store the file path to this picture in the container field. You can then use the container field to display this picture on a layout or you can use a script that opens the original image file.

          Either Export Field Contents or Open URL can be used to open the file. Calculations can extract the file path from the store by reference container field.
