Get real time updates directly on you device, subscribe now.

Fort Worth, TX, August 1, 2019 — CNS Plug-ins releases an update to CNS Image, which introduces new system requirements, an all new iOS version, and new functions merged in from the discontinued MMColor plug-in. Also included is a new Installer database to quickly get up and running. All versions of the plug-in are now signed to work with FileMaker 18 and to ensure you know they came from us. See the What’s New section below for a full change log. CNS Image is available immediately at for download.





CNS Image is a FileMaker plug-in for working with images stored in container fields or stored on the hard drive. On the most basic level, you can use CNS Image to Import images from the hard drive into FileMaker container fields and Export images from container fields to the hard drive using hard-coded paths or dialogs. However, Importing and Exporting images is only the beginning of CNS Image. The plug-in can do so much more with your images. You can Rotate images; you can create small thumbnails in your database of a much larger images on the hard drive. You can split PDFs into multiple images and browse through them all from FileMaker. You can download images from the internet into a container field; and apply filters like brightness to your images. All of these things and more are possible.


CNS Image is not just for FileMaker Pro either. Everything that works under FileMaker Pro will also work under FileMaker Server, with the obvious exception of bringing up a dialog for selecting a file to Import or Export. This means you can use Scheduled Scripts to batch process images at night, or create Instant/Custom Web Publishing/WebDirect solutions that can convert, stretch, crop, and more. With the iOS version and the FileMaker iOS App SDK, you can also bring all these great features to your iOS devices.


As of version 3.0, CNS Image now includes most of the functions from our discontinued MMColor plug-in. These functions allow you to work with color palettes much like you would in a professional design application. You can directly manipulate colors using a variety of color spaces or you can use the system color picker to choose a color. Youcan then use that color with the TextColor calculation function or create color images/chips for use in your database.
