Overview of picture files
   compleat botanica    using the software    Pictures   


Digital pictures captured with today's new cameras are easy to take and fun to have.  Pictures of your specimen can be conveniently organized, displayed and printed using The Compleat Botanica.
Each specimen record has a special field designated for picture files.  Use the file finder button to locate your picture file.  Pictures stored in JPEG or GIF format can be accommodated.  For more about how pictures are stored see the document Setting the default picture directory.


To see your pictures full-sized, use the picture preview button; this will display your pictures in a separate window.  You can scroll through your pictures by keeping this window open and changing the currently selected specimen record.  See the document Using the picture previewer for more about this.
