Database conversion

I have many, many hours invested in creating a database in v.1 of the program. I would like to use the new single-file databse in v1.2, but don't want to have to do all the data entry again - is it possible to convert the old DB to the new format?

One more question, then I promise to go away for now ......
If the image files are imported into the new DB, rather than left in their original locations, is it possible for them to be accessed from the outside world? (like from PhotoShop for example?)

By the way, except for some output (printing) glitches, this program is superb!

1) To convert from the old ImageBase format (IMB) to the new (IMX), just create a new ImageBase and select the images to be copied from the old ImageBase and drag them into the new ImageBase view. I would suggest holding down the CTRL key when doing the drag so that the images and data are copied rather than moved to the new ImageBase.

2) Yes and no. With the new ImageBase format, if the images are actually stored in the ImageBase, the images are not available as files to the system (unlike the older format) and they have to be extracted to access them with external programs like Photoshop. However, the new format allows you to specify an external folder to store image data (much like the older format did). You specify this folder in the ImageBase Properties dialog (File->ImageBase Properties). Once this folder is set, when you insert images you should specify to store the images in the ImageBase and the image data will be copied to a file in the specified folder.
