Title

Displaying photo in external application

Post

I would like to be able to put a button next to a file URL that would bring up the photo at the file URL in an external application such as Preview. Searching the archives and external blogs has not brought up a solution.

Embedding large images in an FMPro db noticeably slows down photo management. A thumbnail image with a button to bring up the larger image in Preview (or GraphicConverter) would work well when it is necessary to scan a higher resolution image.

Is this possible in FMPro 11? Are there examples of such a script somewhere?
