Very often I have the need to import a graphics into a Domino rich text field.  Example JPG or GIF file.  Currently there are no backend classes to do this.  There should be a simple Lotusscript function to enable this, and allow for options like resize and rotate on import.

Is this available with a Java package?

You can get creative in the import of images via notes dll calls but there is no way to crop / resize images from a backend class without having to purchase a product. While pictures have not really been an issue in the past with products like Sametime and Conenctions where pictures play a large role in Social Networkign it would be nice to be able to import them from the companys source system

I've never needed this, but now that I see the idea, I want it.

I only recently figured out how to do this with MS Word and VBA, and hadn't even thought about trying it in Notes.

Yes, it's possible with Java. When used in a Java agent, the server needs a reset every now and then. Apparently, this is due to memory leaks, even when all memory seems to be properly returned to the JVM.

FYI: I believe this functionality is already available ... using "Midas Rich Text LSX" from a 3rd party vendor called "Genii". However, I believe a single license of that software costs over $1,000. And, of course, since it is a 3rd party vendor's solution, there's no guarantee that it will be "forward compatible" with future releases of Notes/Domino. :-/

Needless to say, it indeed sure would be better to have this functionality in core LotusScript classes from IBM/Lotus!!!

Normally, I wouldn't recommend any commercial product, but this one is so cheap, it's practically freeware: { Link }

The product is called "Import Image 2 Lotus Notes"

And can do a whole lot more just importing images.

If I was IBM, I would make a deal with Voith and make it part of the standard Notes/Domino client and server
