Photographs as reference

Dear FileMaker Forum


If I store a photograph as a reference instead of storing the actual photograph file in filemaker, is it not possible to view the photograph in the record so that I can see it without having to click it for it to open the jpeg in a separate window?


I have tried importing a number of photographs by adding the full file of the photo to my database however when I got to around 20 I found that the database became very slow with the circular 'wait' symbol appearing on my screen making me wait for filemaker to carry out a small task like scroll down the page.Is this a common problem with importing photographs in this way?


If so can anyone suggest the best way to import photos to save space but still allow me to see the photograph in the record without haing to click it first



I would realy appreciate some advice
