Picture cannot be displayed

Recommended Posts


My database contains information regarding images collected from various microscopes. I have a container field into which a scaled down version of the image is inserted. The inserted file is a 24-bit RGB tiff no larger than 512x512 pixels created with ImageJ.

Occassionally, inserting the image gives an error message "This picture cannot be displayed" and an icon with the file name appears in the container. I can't see anything like file format, size or bit depth that might be causing this.

Any suggestions?

Although copy and paste is not the preferred method to place an image in a container field, the non-displaying images can be opened in any image application (e.g. ImageJ, Preview) and copied into the container.

What is the reason that copy and paste is not recommended?

Could an insert picture script collect the name of the file it is inserting?
