problem with containers and photos
I am new to FM 11 and I have my database of photographs set up so that I import my pictures from a picture file into my database indicating size, title etc. This method seems to work most of the time, but lately I get a "can't import photo icon" in the container instead of the photo. I have used the reference method and as I say it works most of the time- but not now all my new images that were uploaded now become a photo icon saying it can't import the picture. Does anyone have any idea why this happens? I'm stumped......
You do not note your OS and version.
Where are the photos stored (all in one folder or scattered)(local or on an external HD or server?)
What are the photo filetype (jpeg, raw, other?)
They are all referenced?
How many photos currently? Size of the database?
If you create a new clean database, does it import correctly?
