We have a catalog with picts embedded in the file via the conainer fields.

If we put this file on the web, I assume that it will fail since the images were put in as picts (don't ask me why crazy.gif )

If they were .jpg or .gif embedded would it have worked.

Thanks,

IMHO - WebCompanion will convert any picture to the .jpg from container.

But it is very bad for load on WC.

Much better is to include in text field just reference to the picture, like "http://www.prnet.cz/images/jw.gif"

and the picture will be served by normal server-browser connection

You might try converting one .pict to a .gif or .jpg using a tool such as GraphicConverter and testing it yourself. The only thing I would recommend is making your container/.jpg-.gif consistent, or have two containers which give a portrait and a landscape type choice of picture display. Just make all sizes consistent. Whether or not this is "speed satisfactory" is not for me to say.

Peace

After testing on my LAN via a web browser with instant web sharing; it converts the embedded images to jpeg on the fly.

We'll probably end up going in and redoing all the records by hand to ref an appropriate external jpg since we only have about 230 records involved.

Thanks,
