PicturePlus for ACT! brings ACT! to life

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 delivers. 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 delivers.
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 delivers.
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. PicturePlus 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.

PicturePlus also allows you to add pictures directly into the field if you so desire as originally designed in ACT.
With PicturePlus for ACT! you get the best of both worlds. If you are using pictures or photos in ACT then PicturePlus is a must.
It turns what is a fairly rudimentary function of ACT into something far more powerful. Discover the new functionality of ACT with PicturePlus.
