For the first time ACT! now has support for picture fields.
Prior to ACT! 2005 (v7) no such functionality existed.
However picture fields are a little rudimentary giving you only
the ability to add a picture or clear a picture.
When adding a picture, the file is stored within the ACT! database.
Using today's high megapixel digital cameras would result in a database that
would quickly reach its 2 Gig limit under Windows XP.
Now with PicturePlus
there is a solution. Watch PicturePlus for ACT!
transform the picture field functionality.
On choice PicturePlus
You can choose to store the pictures on the database or you can store only the
link to the pictures so your pictures reside off the database.
Storing the link means your database remains
as compact as possible allowing you to store more contacts and giving you faster backups.
On flexibility PicturePlus
You can open multiple pictures in "full size" which means you can have thumbnail
sized fields on your layout and only open those you need to have a closer look at.
This gives your layout more flexibility.
You can open the picture in your favorite photo editing program, make the changes,
and store them back into ACT!.
PicturePlus for ACT!
allows you to store images, PDF, audio, video, etc. -
any file for that matter - to a picture field.
On convenience PicturePlus
PicturePlus for ACT!
supports scanners and digital cameras and
you can now scan or snap directly into picture fields.
It doesn't get any easier than that. Gone too is the dreaded deletion
of the picture fields without even a confirmation prompt.
asks for a confirmation before deleting.
You want dependability and reliability
You got it! PicturePlus for ACT!
has been tested on databases with over
1200 picture fields and it has never missed a beat.
also allows you to add pictures directly into
the field if you so desire as originally designed in ACT.
for ACT! you get the best of both worlds.

is a must.
It turns what is a fairly rudimentary function of ACT into something far more powerful.
