picture import

Recommended Posts

I have not tried this before, but I have need for a user to import a picture from their computer. This pic will become part of their record. How do I address the picture size and import. I am new and am having trouble beginning this.

Thanks in Advance

There are a few ways to get a picture into FM:

(this is from the FM help file, which does provide good help)

1 In Browse mode, click the container field.

When you select a rotated field in Browse mode, the field is temporarily displayed in its original, horizontal left-to-right, orientation.

2 Choose Insert menu > Picture.

3 In the dialog box, choose the graphic file.

Choose a graphic file type for Files of type (Windows) or Show (Mac OS).

4 Choose a storage option, then click Open.

If you select Store only a reference to the file, FileMaker Pro doesn't import the graphic file, it only keeps track of where it is on your hard disk. This option may reduce the size of your FileMaker Pro file, but if you move or delete the file, FileMaker Pro won't be able to display it.
