I am trying to import images using import XML. I can easily get images that are locally stored. But I need to get images from a website. Is it possible to include "http://" path in the href propoerty of an image file. I am on a deadline. Any hint will be appreciated....thanks
Here are the possible ways of referencing to images:
|Image reference examples|
|Images stored in same folder as xml file|
|images stored in a sub folder inside the same folder as xml file|
|Images stored anywhere and referenced by accessing the full path name. This is referred to as an absolute path name||In the Documents folder on your PC: |
|In the Documents folder on your Mac: |
|Where username is to be replaced with your username (in my case that would be “carijansen”) and RestOfPath points to sub and sub-sub-folders inside the Documents folder|
|Images stored on another volume (server)||from a Macintosh OS: |
|Where VolumeName reflects the volume.|
Where ServerName reflects the name of the Server you’re connected to.
Ultimately, the file has to be residing on a network volume and not on a web server. So the path has to be Absolute path to the network volume and not a URL, because ID will not dynamically make calls to URL while opening the file or importing the XML.
