How to Use the Photo Option in ProAPOD

All three of ProAPOD’s real estate investment software solutions provide an easy way for users to include photos in their real estate analysis reports. Having said that, however, it should also be pointed out that the number of photos that can be posted do vary based upon the solution. Before we show you how to use the photo option, here’s a summary of options available by solution.

  1. ProAPOD Investor 4.0 – A photo can be placed on the Cover Sheet.
  2. ProAPOD Agent 6.0 – A photo can be placed on the Cover Sheet and Marketing Package.
  3. ProAPOD Executive 10.0 – A photo can be placed on the Cover Sheet, Marketing Package, Executive Summary, Photo Page, and Sold Comparable report.

Why the disparity, because not all of the real estate investing software solutions contain the same reports. Obviously  ProAPOD Executive 10.0, which is our ultimate rental property analysis and marketing solution, will create the most reports where photos can be posted, and ProAPOD Investor 4.0, which does not contain any marketing elements, creates the least. Other than the quantity of reports, though, there is no difference in either the ease or quality of posting a photo. All three software solutions include the one-click method ProAPOD has become known for.

To include a photo, the user simply clicks a Get Picture button on either the toolbar or form (depending on which report is being created), chooses the report where the picture is desired, selects the picture he or she wants from the computer, and clicks Okay. Almost like magic, ProAPOD will format the picture and post it on the report. The user does nothing. Just select and click. Likewise, if at anytime the user decides to remove or change the picture, it is done primarily the same way and just as easily.
