For instance, If one had a database of images, at various locations,  a
click of the mouse (say on an icon provided in the search result form next
to the image name) could launch photoshop with the path/filename of the
image file and photoshop would load the image ready for editing. LO base
provides the search mechanism, photoshop provides the editing features.

I don't know why someone wouldn't want this feature. I've used this in
filemaker and it has been a great time saver.

Ah, you mean clickable links in Base that might actually do something
useful ;-)

Well, you won't find anything out of the box, you would have to code it
using a script, e.g. LO Basic. use cURL to take the name of the file
then pass it to the "shell" command - I had read somewhere a while ago
though that this didn't actually work anymore. Anyway you're going to
have to experiment with Basic or some other supported scripting language
if you want to do that.

Hi Alex

Right - that is the answer and it is very very simple.
