    Standardizing image sizes

    richardsrussell

      I have a database of flags. The typical flag is 3x5, so I've set up a container field that's 144x240 points to hold the images of them, which I get from all over. The field is formatted to reduce or enlarge the image to fit the frame (altho in practice this always means "reduce") and to maintain original proportions.

       

      This produces excellent results when I'm viewing the flag images on screen or when I want to print them out. However, I often want to copy an image out of that container field and paste it into another document, at which point the image reverts to its original size, sometimes quite large. I'm looking for a technique that'll let me copy an image out of FileMaker that'll be exactly 144x240 every time. Is there any way to do this?
