Why are imported images different?

I notice a problem with images that have been added en masse through Filemaker's import folder function. A GetAsText ( Image ) string for one of these records returns only the following minimal information:

image:/D:/Database/Subfolder/apricot.jpg

As I'm trying to extract the pixel dimensions that are usually present through a manually-added image, I'm at a loss as to how to entice Filemaker to get the full information, like:

size:501,341

image:My Images/picture.jpg

imagewin:/D:/Database/My Images/picture.jpg

Any body have any idea why these images are treated as second-rate?

You also get different results with other file types. What would you get with a sound file? certainly not pixel info!

At present I still say this is undocumented, unless you can show me otherwise.

imagewin:/D:/Database/My Images/picture.jpg

this type of result is given only by unstored picture files, in other words only when the container has a reference to the original file.
