Adding Contact Images in ContaxCRM

On your ContaxCRM Overview window you may have something that looks a little bit like this:

ContaxCRM

You’d really like something that looks like this:

ContaxCRM

This is really simple to do.  There are several ways I could have designed this but the method I finally decided on was to store the image outside of the database, in a standard folder in the ContaxCRM folder hierarchy.

So, for you to add images to your contacts you need to make a note of the contacts ID Number. This is a unique number that ContaxCRM automatically applies to every contact in the ContaxCRM database. There are several places to view the ID number but the simplest is probably to look at the ContaxCRM window titlebar with your contact currently selected.

ContaxCRM

Having made a note of your contacts ID number, look in your ContaxCRM data folder, by default this is in the Documents folder of your computer. For Multi-User installations it will have been placed in a centrally accessible location by your System Administrator.

In the ContaxCRM folder will be an Images folder.  In the Images folder you place your contact image file having renamed it as CONTACTIDNUMBER.png (eg: 1128.png)  and made sure that the image type is PNG.

ContaxCRM

That is all that is necessary for ContaxCRM to find and display the image for your contact.
