Once in a blue moon I encounter an image that when inserted into a container and displayed on a layout will display at a fraction of it's original size. It doesn't matter if I choose "Enlarge image to fit" or "Reduce image to fit" or "Crop to frame" All yield the same "small image". If I optimize for images it's small. If I optimize for interactive content it's even smaller. This happens in my database, and it happens in a blank database with just one record and one container field. Until now every example has been an image I don't have the rights to share, but I finally found a public image on Wikipedia that does this (it's a detail of the Mona Lisa's eyes):
Choosing "Reduce or Enlarge image to fit" solves the problem. However I'd like to stick with reduce image to fit as images are only ever reduced in my solution, and I twice read (though I unfortunately did not write down the source in my notes) that filemaker doesn't generate storable thumbnails for containers set to "Reduce or Enlarge image to fit."
I would love to be corrected on that fact, but even so, I'd like to know if anyone is experiencing the same issue with that image.
