Returns the result of the transaction as GIF image.
Make sure the data is a GIF. The plugin does not verify whether result is a GIF file. But if it is one, it sets size properties so FileMaker can preview it.
Version 5.2 and later can use the filename from URL if you don't provide one yourself.

See also CURL.GetResultAsContainer.
