How To Paste A JPG Image

Is there any field type that will allow me to paste a jpg, tif, or png image from the Snipping Tool? 

 

The purpose is to pick up a picture from something like LinkedIn and paste it to the contact's detail view. 

 

For the most part, I use the WebInfo tab, but sometimes the contact can't be found by ACT but can be when directly on the LinkedIn site.

 

I know how to load an image from a layout, but that would apply to every one ... unless I want a layout for each person.  9,000 layouts would be fun to manage.

You would need to save the image locally and then import it to a picture field.

Re: How To Paste A JPG Image

Many thanks.  Works like a charm.  Now, I'll request a change that a picture can be pasted directly into the picture field instead of going through a 2 step process.

Thanks for the link.  I went to the site and couldn't find the product there or the price.
