Saving media files in FileMaker has never been easier!

Drag & drop media files with clever functionality

Everything you need when dealing with media files in your database:

  • A nice, big dropzone to add media.
  • A portal to display thumbnails, file names and file size.
  • Buttons for preview, download and delete
  • A table with a complete set of calculated fields to extract useful data from your container
    • File extension
    • File size
    • File creation date
    • Picture height and width
    • Thumbnails

Nothing more… but also nothing less! The devil is in the details: expertly crafted object formatting and conditional show/hide make it seam like there is nothing to it… yet there’s a lot going on behind the scenes.

Very small footprint in your database: just one table and one script.

Hey, it’s free. Check it out!

FAQ

How should I install the add-on after downloading it?

  • Download the add-on files from the website
  • Place the files in the AddonModules folder:
    • Mac: Macintosh HD > Users > [USERNAME] > Library > Application Support > FileMaker > Extensions > AddonModules
    • Windows: C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\FileMaker\Extensions\AddonModules
  • Paste the files into the “AddonModules” folder.
  • Restart your FileMaker, the addon should now be available
  • The “library” folder is often hidden on MAC, another option is to go to the “Plugin” folder from FileMaker.
    • FileMaker Pro > Settings… > Plug Ins, then click ‘Reveal Plug-in Folder’.
  • This will take you to the desired location, but a few folders are too deep. You should go back a few steps from there to the path described earlier (it’s the general Extensions > AddonModules folder, NOT the one in the FileMaker Pro folder itself)
