It is possible to include images as part of a sale that is transferred into a ClickForms report. To do this, scroll to the photo page section in the sale editing window. Supported file types include jpgs and PDFs.

There are six layouts from which to choose; the first five are for jpgs, the last one is strictly for PDFs. Here the term exhibit refers to a single large/full-page layout, with no editable comment block.

There are 2 exhibit (full-page) layouts identified above. 1 is for a single jpg; 2 is for PDFs only.
In addition to the Exhibit layout option for photos, there are four additional layouts for photos.
There is a title cell available at the top of a photo page; this will show on the page tab.
Each photo in a photo page has a corresponding comment box with the exception of the exhibit layout for a photo; it is a single large photo only.
