Pictures into AEGIS 3 - a step by step guide with troubleshooting
Adding pictures to places on the map (Windows XP)
1. Create a new folder in Windows Explorer and copy your photos into it.
2. The photos can be in JPG, BMP
or TIF format.
You can take pictures with a
digital camera, or ask for a CD
when you have a film developed.
3. Open the AEGIS worksheet
with the map to which you wish to
add your photos.
Save this worksheet in the folder
in which you have copied your
4. Amend the Data Structure to
add a Picture Box. Click on the
Data Table, then choose Data,
Define fields.
Add a new field called Photos with
the Data type - Picture
You can add pictures to
any type of map.
When you close this Dialogue Box
and return to the Data Table, you
will not see the Picture Field on
the table.
An empty picture box appears on
the screen.
5. Now comes the clever bit.
Click on a place on the map (a
seed) for which you have a photo in
the folder you have made.
Now go into My Computer and click
once on the photo’s file name.
Repeat the process to place a
photo at each of the seeds on
the map.
Press and drag the file onto the
minimised AEGIS program on the
bottom bar on the screen.
Do not release the mouse button
until you have now dragged the
photo into the Picture Box on the
AEGIS worksheet.
6. Check that the picture changes
when you click on different seeds
on the map.
If you find a picture in the wrong
location, just replace it with the
correct one.
7. Save your worksheet again in the folder with the photos. The pictures remain separate from the
AEGIS document, so copy the whole folder if you want to use the document elsewhere.
