How may I enter a link to an external file in Base

I am trying to get a Base table to give details of my fishing trips (a fishing log) that will also show photo’s relevant to the catch and location.
Is there a way I can hold the pictures in an external folder (nested in the same folder as the database files) and use a link to call therm up for that record as some photos will be duplicated across records and embedding them will massively inflate the size of the database files.


Yes. For a very simple method on doing this, see my answer in this post → How to insert a link to an odb database to display an image.

The images/photos can be located in one or many folders.
