Importing picture into Navision (is it bmp file only..?)

Dear All,
I am currently having about more than thousands pictures, but I know the item card picture can capture only bmp files, meanwhile if I use bmp files, it will take a lot of hardisk capacity and it will increase overhead for the companies whose so many branches. I would like to ask fi Navision can capture JPEG/JPG file pictures. If you have known about it, let me know. I expected your answers. tks beforehand


Rgds,
MrGM

    You can store jpg files but cannot fiew it. You probably write a mode to save the file as as temp jpg file and open the file with the default fiewer. Version 5 i believe allows other types of files.

    as posted on dynamicsusers.org - I keep my bmp pics on a sep drive & navision shows them when needed - with 200GB being less than $200 it should keep you happy for years to come.

    Dear All,
    :?
    I still don't understand yet, I mean I've had some answers said there is a converter (dynamicsusers.org) and another alternative is increasing hardisk drive capacity.
    I know that there are many correct answers from you here according to your experience and knowledge but isn't there more economical ways..?
    I am afraid if the clients will needs to store more than 9000 pics because it's otomotive spareparts dealer that has many stores. They only said thousands of pictures but I must predict earlier.

    You can store the bmp in monochrome, 2 bit, it will be black and white and will be very small. If you want you it in color you can store it in 16 bits. The other option is to store it in a directory and Navision would in runtime grab it from that folder and display it.
