ACT! v17Pro is there an add-on that will automatically resize my contact photos when I add them to my contact record?

Example, if I save a contact photo from LinkedIn, I then need to open it with ms paint and resize the photo to 224 x 193 to fit it fully into my layout photo area.

Thank you for any help in advance.

Would you believe me if I said this is already built into ACT! - It is just undocumented.

 

Once you have got your Picture field created open up the layout again using Tools - Design Layouts.

 

Next select View - Property Window.

 

Now click on the Picture Field and on the right hand side in properties select Behaviour.

 

The option you want is Stretch Image.

 

Save the layout and away you go without needing any add-ons.

I use an online tool called http://www.resizr.com/, not an automatic tool that works directly with ACT!, but is fairly efficient.

Thank you both for your input. The stretch option should work for me.
