How are the images stored? Directly in the container filed, as a reference, external containers?
See if this helps: FileMaker Pro 15 Help
If they are stored as a reference, this will get you the path if you use the "content" attribute.

GetAsText(TheContainerField) will also get you the path, if the file is stored as a reference.
Thanks for the suggestion, shamblee.
The pictures are stored as references. I tried this in the calculation field where I want to display the path to the image:
(where images is the name of the table and baseImage is the name of the container field).
I get the pathname returned, but I get some extra stuff, too.
Bonus data! I get the pixel size for free!
Looks like I have a date with FMP's text parsing functions. And I'll try Joshua Ormond's suggestion,too.
Thanks for the help! I love working in FMP, but I don't get to do it often. Having the FMP Community as a resource is a lifesaver.
GetValue ( GetAsText(images::baseImage) ; 2 ) seems to do the trick.
