New to all this and need some advice.


Doing a photo database, containing over 1500 photos. Photo sizes from 5 mb to 100mb (tiff and JPGs).

Current database is hitting 12 GB.

Do you recommend lowering all the photos to JPG and high compression?

Have made the database stand alone. Don't have to export a high res image from the database.

Photos have a lot of data with them, like a group photo and with all the names included.

Using Content Management fmp 12 template on Mac's.
