Notes:

  • You can use either the Image Name or the File Type when specifying types in CNS Image.
  • On Mac OS X, CNS Image uses both the File Type and the File Extensions in the Import Dialog to determine if a file is a valid image type. On Windows, CNS Image only uses the File Extensions in the Import Dialog. When exporting images from your database, CNS Image will append the first listed file extension to the file name.
  • On Windows, if you paste an image into a container, the underlying format is a Windows MetaFile, DIB, or OLE format, which is incompatible with CNS Image. The plug-in will be able to manipulate the “JPEG Preview” however.
