No it shouldn't cost any differently to add pictures. So feel free to add a few tonight so that I can see what things are looking like and if there is any cause for concern.
I'm sorry I'm not following. Are you telling me its more money to add a picture? Cause I'm unaware that it should cost anything additional to add pictures. Keep in mind I'm a dentist and I don't know the ins and outs of the just answer software.
