While you can add photos to recipes in the software, the photos that come with the software are very limited...there's only 116 recipes with photos out of 882 recipes that I have pre-loaded in the software. It is very nice that you can add your own though so you can remind yourself exactly what the dish should look like or include them in your printed recipe book.
My favorite feature of this program is that you can scale recipes based upon your desired number of servings. No more trying to calculate out what 2.5 times a recipe made for 2 means for the ingredient list. The software does it for you!!! Another really neat feature is that you can search for recipes based on ingredients you have on hand. I like to do a pantry clearing month for my recipes, so this is a perfect fit for me.
The only thing I really had an issue with is the recipe search & capture feature that imports recipes you find on the web into your recipe book. I can't see any way to type in a specific web address for when you know exactly where the recipe is that you want. I was able to type in the web address in the "exact wording or phrase" search box and get the web page to come up. Unfortunately, when I tried to capture the recipe, it didn't import anything other than the wrong title. I was able to find a web page that it worked right on, but it seems hit and miss or it depends on how the website/blogger posted the recipe. On other web recipes I kept getting an error message that the formatting is unknown or non-existent.
