So I am trying to create a database that can candle images to export to the web and it seems like none of them can do it. I was surprised FileMaker Pro can't.



Anyone have any suggestions?

    I should also mention I have no programing skills. Which is why FileMaker was my first choice

    I don't know what you mean by "handle images" but I just created a database in Appleworks that can store images.

    FileMaker can handle images. The field you are trying to store the image in must be a Container.

    It sure can but try exporting that database to html with the images and it won't let you.

    Just as I said, handle images to export to the web, IE html.

    Very few databases these days cannot do images. I suppose filemaker will work, although depending on your application, it might be worth learning a little SQL and using MySQL or PostgreSQL. There are GUI front ends you can use, but you'll still need to know the code.

    See and that's the thing. I want this to be a very simple database that has four text fields and two image fields and that's it.
