How to Get Recipe Images Into
Your NYC Cookbook
Some users like to scan recipe images, or photograph the
dishes, and then add these images to the recipes in their NYC cookbook. To do this:
your scanner software, save the scanned picture as a
.jpg or .gif image file into a folder that you remember. If using a digital camera, use your
camera software to export the images from your camera to a folder that you
remember. If you don’t have
scanner or camera software, you can use Microsoft’s Scanner and
Camera Wizard that comes with Windows XP to get pictures from your scanner
or camera onto your computer.
NYC, press the “R” toolbar button, and double-click the recipe
to open it in the edit window.
the image tab in the recipe edit window.
the Browse… button on the image tab, and browse to the folder where
you saved the .jpg image file.
the .jpg or .gif image file and press the Open button (or dbl-click the file).
The image will appear in a frame on the image tab.
Backing Up Your
When you attach an image to a
recipe with NYC, NYC stores that image in the cookbook's image archive (*.ima)
and indexes it (*.imx). There is no need to retain the original images
because there is no connection to them. NYC retrieves images from the
cookbook's image archive when NYC needs to print or display an image of a
recipe. However, it is always prudent to keep the original images as a
backup in case your cookbook gets corrupted and the images lost.
