Add a Personnel Picture


Personnel pictures can be installed as a subdirectory of your Data folder. The default path to this subdirectory is \Data\Pictures. If you save pictures to this directory, they are backed up each time the program makes an automatic backup.

Because image files are large, they take up more space on your hard drive and make the backup files larger. If backing up large files is a concern, consider creating a subdirectory for pictures outside of the PDS program folder. If you do this, they are no longer backed up automatically and you must back them up manually.

  1. On the Personnel tab, click All Personnel or the appropriate personnel section then Primary Information.
  2. Locate the appropriate record.
  3. For Picture File, click the browse icon yellow folder and locate the digital image file.
    Note: Your image must be one of these file types: .gif, .jpg, .jpeg, .bmp, .png, .emf, .wmf, or .ico.
  4. Select the file, and click Open.
  5. At the top, click Save.
