      problem inserting jpg and tif as picture

      Post

      I am new to this forum. I created a database for a coworker to store physical and chemical data for different lots of a material she is developing. The data includes TIFFs from a scanning electron microscope. When we try to insert these as pictures in container fields, we get the error message:

       

      This file type could not be displayed as a picture. It will be inserted and displayed as a file.

       

      I have inserted this type of image into a previous filemaker database created for a different person with no problems. One saw the image, not a file icon. Cannot think what could be causing this error message. Saving in jpg format does not help. Get the same message.
