We would like to have an option to use a seperated photo database. Not gravatar, not Connections and not names.nsf. We cannot use names.nsf because of GDPR in Europe. You cannot replicate names with all pictures to a laptop.
We have created our own photo.nsf and tricked VOP to use this database. It works well/perfect/fast, but it's a trick.
This is a well know requirement. Thanks for raising it.
