Opening .psd file

Fairly inexperienced FileMaker user, looking for a little help. I have a database of information about paintings and I'd like to add a button that when clicked will open the Photoshop file of that painting -- located elsewhere on my computer.

Any suggestions?

If you have FileMaker 7+ you can open the picture's file with FileMaker. You have the picture's filepath, in the referenced image path. All you have to do is swap the prefix ("imagemac:/" or "imagewin:/" or just "image:", with a "file" prefix; "filemac:/", "filewin:/" or just "file:").

Then you can open the file by either double-clicking the field (which now looks like any other alias or shortcut), or with a script step that goes to the field, with "Select/perform".
