Using Photo Inserts

If you wish to add your photos in a group at the end of a section, or at the end of the report, INSPECTEXPRESS™ provides tools to add the images and create the cross-references from the report text  in one easy step. Many different photo templates styles are included and installed in the 'Templates' directory with other document inserts. 

Inserting Photo Insert Pages:

Photo insert pages can be inserted by including Insert File-PhotoPageInsert-1 or Insert File-PhotoPageInsert-2 on the Start New Inspection form. This will add a heading to the report at the location specified in the report order and five pages of photo inserts.  

Additional single insert page can be added to the document as needed by selecting Doc Inserts->Insert Document from the main toolbar. Select any template named 'MorePhotoPageInsert...'. This will insert the additional page at the cursor position on the document.  

To change the default photo insert page, select the item on the Start New Inspection or Report Template Editor form and click the 'Browse' button to select a new photo page according to the style specified in the document name. Different styles have varying numbers of photos per page and can be aligned left or center.

Inserting the Photos:

Once a photo insert page has been included in the report document, photos with cross-references can be added in one easy step. Place the cursor on the report document where you want the cross reference placed and select Insert Image->(See Photo 1) Cross-reference or  Insert Image->(See Photo 1) Cross-reference Text  from the main toolbar.  

The (See Photo 1) Cross-reference style will add the image to the next available spot on the photo insert pages as well as the 'See Photo 1' text as a cross-reference.  

The (See Photo 1) Cross-reference Text style will add both the image and the sentence where the cursor is positioned on the document to the next available spot on the photo insert pages.
