Merge pictures from documents tab in to word template

Hello all

Environment - Act Pro V17 - SQL Express 2008 R2

A client wants to store approx 40 images against contact cards. (picture field) Then use these to produce word templates through Act. My concern is this will fill the DB up very quickly. These are before and after images they take on jobs they do. I know it can be done using picture fields and pull these through in the template but like I said my concern is this will fill the DB up very quickly.

Is there an add on that can use images stored in the documents tab. either direct or through a shortcut there pointing to server machine that will pull these through in to an Act .adt template?

 

Thanks in advance

You can control the size of the file by the quality and size of the image.  Using lower resolution pictures and smaller sizes (for example a 3x3 picture at 600 dpi). you should be able to keep thousands of pictures..
