When I try to insert an image as an external file, it works fine. I use something like insert into image values (1, ORDImage.init('FILE', 'MYDIR', 'filename.jpg'). The file lies externally on the file system.
The insertion itself works fine, but when i query certain properties with methods like GetWidth(), GetHeight() etc. only NULLs are returned. In fact, there is nothing more than getsource(), getsourcename() and so on which return values at all. Those ones returned are correct, though.
