tab is used to capture detailed pictures of the selected item.
pictures can be stored in the database or left in the file
system. Obviously, storing the pictures in the database will
cause the database to grow. What may not be obvious is that
storing pictures in the database can also significantly slow the
program startup and shutdown for large collections. If you
intend to build a large collection it is best to not store the
pictures in the database.
You can set whether or
not to store the pictures in the database or leave them in the file
system through the Options > Pictures menu. Selecting
Options > Pictures > Save in Database stores the pictures in
the database. Selecting Options > Pictures > Save in
File System causes the program to leave the pictures where they are
in the file system and load them from that location during run
time. One thing to note, if you switch this selection from one
option to the other, the system will give you the option to migrate
the pictures as well.
the pictures are large they can affect the performance of the
application and may not load properly or show up in reports with
images. Please keep them as small as reasonably
possible. I have successfully loaded pictures as large as 2048
x 1360 pixels (1,400 KB) with no problems.
