    Feature request--image manipulation



      Feature request--image manipulation


      I use a tremendous number of images in my databases (tracking film clips) and they come from a variety of sources--some are full RGB and some are REC601 or other.    The end result is some images look great and others are rather dark.


      Yes I could process before importing but it would be nifty if brightness could be adjusted.


      Beyond that, it would be awesome to vary the opacity of images in container fields, but I dare not dream.   


      Love the program.

             There is an ImageScan plug-in which can do this. It can also do Rotate, Contrast (don't know about opacity). It is somewhat questionable how well it is supported however.

            Doubt this would ever be "built in" to FileMaker, but at DevCon 2008 I demonstrated a solution that manipulated images using the SmartPill plugin from http://www.scodigo.com


            We demonstrated adding a drop shadow and rotating the image: both operations used php code called from the plugin to take the image apart, add layers, reassemble and then reimport into a container field. If you could find php code to change opacity / brightness I'm sure you'd be able to do the same things. Micah at Scodigo is also VERY helpful with these kinds of mods.


            Hope that helps.
