Webdirect and file paths

I am trying to use a calculation to display an image in a container. My calculation result is set as Container.

I am using FM server 14 and I am designing a webdirect solution to be used on Windows PC, either IE or Chrome.

My problem is that I want to store employee pictures in a directory and name the images according to employee ID. I want to be able to Insert images to that directory and be able to show them using the calculation method.

My question concerns the correct path name. What is the path I should refer to and where should I put my images on the FM Server.

I am able to use this method locally by using a local file path but it won't work when I am viewing the image using a browser through webdirect.

I am using this format for the url, considering its a local reference, if I understand correctly. (imagewin:/driveletter:/directoryName/fileName)

Thank you
