Looking for Adding 5000+photo's.

[ Edited ]

I know how to copy/drag a photo into a picture field, but I need an automatic way/dynamic to upload the photo

for more than 5.000+ products photo. I have seen some addons (Expon./Durk.) but these are static/drag/drop

ways.Prepared to buy such addon. What I want is more or less similar as a stockcontrol with photos of product.

Each Product must have its own photo. bmp, which are stored under c:\ Users\...\ Documents\ XXX.bmp

I have  No knowledge of Visual Basic/C++ Programming..

I work with Win7 Ult./ ACT2013Premium.

 

I need the photo in the UPPER part of the screen. I have already  a workable/linked photo via Webinfo- link to file.

 

Thanks for help!

William

itImport can import images ... you'd need a spreadsheet defining which image to which contact

Is this a one time process for the 5000+ photos, or will there be an ongoing need to import?

Tried IT-Import and I have visible photos/pictures in Excel2010, but
upon preview in ITimport I see the ConnectionField aka Country and the second field is the picture,which is in preview "blank/empty"

Sofar no result with ITImport (trialversion 14 days)

A warning about using the Picture field.

I have a client who started putting pictures in but then found his database failed to do a Remote Database Sync.

When we removed the pictures it started to work again.

Never got a resolution so if anyone knows one it would be good to post here.
