Login to APIC Manager. Where the real documentation starts.

In your Manager at apicbase.com, all your images are stored in a central spot, private and ready for you to use them whenever you want. Either go for the basic Chef subscription, to organize your images, or for the Chef Pro, to document your recipes, menus and tag the images.


Categorize. Dish? Wine? Ingredient? Something else?

In APIC Manager, every category has it's own specifications. Just categorize your images into four pre-defined categories to allow for more specific information, because a dish needs different info then a bottle of wine.
