You can use the length function to see the size your image in the container if it is not stored by reference.
You might consider storing all of these pictures "by reference" instead of actually copying them into the container as you are now doing. This will keep your file size down no matter how big your individual pictures are.
Than you Phil, I will certainly consider option two.
I have two more questions,
1.- If I opt to go to option 2 - Then I will have to keep the images on a folder and this folder will have to be present on the server so that my website can display the images - correct?
2.- The second question, I got a number result for the length function, what I kind of measure is this do you know. Is it pixels or bytes.
1) yes, and check the documentation from FileMaker that documents exactly where this folder must be.
2) I don't know off the top of my head. Anybody out there know?
You might try using export field contents to export a copy of the image and then comparing file size to what length returns. You won't get an exact match in the numbers, but maybe close enough to figure it out.
Looks like bytes to me.
