Open image in container field, stored externally


     I've got a FMPro 12 Advanced database where I pull my images from a security camera, and they are stored exterally.

     I want my users to able to open the file from inside the database. I know that I can use the Export Field Contents function to move them where I want on their hard drive, but it's too complicated for them.  I'm not sure if there is a way to make it a simple double-click or button for my users. The 'Insert from URL' function is the way they're pulled into the database so there's no hope of simply clicking 'store as reference' as suggested in other threads.

     Does anyone know of a way to accomplish this? I know that Filemaker Go apparently has this option but I've not been able to find one for FMPro 12.
