[OPEN-ILS-GENERAL] Facility to Add Patron's Photo

I think this is a fine suggestion and I can see the use of it in a number of situations. This should be added as a wishlist item on LaunchPad.

I would make the following two suggestions about the feature:

1.       Use of the photo should be system optional (not that a person can opt-out; the system should be able to opt-out entirely)

2.       In institutions/consortia where they have opted not to use this feature, there should be no indication of it in a patron record (like "Photo not found" or a broken image spot or even a blank space to give the impression something ought to be present).

The news from IRC is that if you're interested in this, it'd be appropriate to add as a wishlist item/bug report in LaunchPad.  Some things have been done locally that would be similar to this.  Please note that if this is something that you'd like to see developed sooner rather than later, it never hurts to have some development money available.

I agree with Jayaraj, think this would be a great feature for new versions of Evergreen.

Hi All,
Can we think of adding patron's image while the doing the registration. It should show when we open the patron account.

Can we integrate this feature in the coming versions of Evergreen ILS.
