Container images have smaller file size

Question asked by SteveBlair on Sep 18, 2012


Container images have smaller file size


     I have a container field on my table to accept images for advertisements to be printed later. The field is set to store data externally with open storage, so I thought it would make an exact copy of whatever file I place in the container, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

     JPG images saved by Filemaker seem to have slightly smaller file sizes than the originals, which suggests some sort of compression.

     And placing a PDF in the container does make a copy of the PDF in the designated folder, but also creates a JPG version of it.

     How do I set the container to just make copies of the files placed in it and put them all in one folder?
