Opening an image Upload Images   Link   Email

I recently used Richard's browse VBA programme to find a photo and then link it to my database and show on the form.
Is there a way that I can then open that image in Microsoft Photos so that I can zoom in so see more details of the photo. I have tried different options but none have worked.
Any help would be welcomed.

So Can I either click on the photo or the pathway or set up a button such as open File etc ?

Colin -
Not in Microsoft Photos but this might be a solution for you as well.  Kevin Robertson, another Access Ambassador,  brought this back to mind in a different thread.

Print Documents

It is a the very least good information on working with different files.  As Richard says "he gives us the Lego pieces - It's up to us to put them together.

/HT Kevin!  I forgot about this one.

If you associate the file type (JPG, etc.) with Windows so that the default app to open it is Microsoft Photo Editor, then it will open without any extra work.
