CNS Image can import images into container fields and export images from container fields. What the plug-in can do with images while in FileMaker is where it gets interesting. Imagine importing a folder of digital photos into FileMaker. There are several tasks you will probably want to apply to your photos. You may want to rotate a photo from landscape to portrait. You may want to crop a photo down to capture the subject of the photo better. You may want to flip or reflect a photo horizontally, vertically, or both. You may want to apply a sepia color tint to the photo to give it that antique look. You may want to sharpen the photo up and adjust the hue or saturation of the photo to make the colors pop out better. All of these things, and more, can be done using CNS Image, and you do not even have to leave FileMaker to accomplish them. You may want to extract a layer from a Photoshop document. You can even extract pages (layers) from a PDF document which can be useful for viewing documents cross-platform in FileMaker.
