In this post, we will add some photographs to the database and associate them with the persons in the database.
On the "Tree" page, I found the "Photos" icon on the icon menu row:
After clicking on the "Photos" icon, the "Photos" screen appeared. The list of persons in my database were in the left-hand panel. The main center panel has three tabs - Photos, Query and Import. The "Photos" tab was blank (since I have none imported yet!), so I clicked on the "Import" tab. Here I was asked to select the file folders on my computer (the program will search for all of your images if you want it to - I didn't!). I checked the "In specific folders" box and then found my Seaver family photographs in one of my file folders:
After I clicked on "OK" I had to click on "Search" on the "Import" tab screen and all of the photos in my selected file folder appeared:
I clicked "No" because I have only this one so far. The program then went to the "Photos" tab and showed all of my selected photos in a table. The popup window says that I should associate persons in my database with these photographs, and edit the photograph information:
The way you associate the photograph with a person is to find the person in the alphabetical list in the left-hand panel (if you hover your mouse over the name, you can see their details - see below), highlight that person and then drag and drop the name into the "Association" field on the photo list:
I did that for all of the photographs that I imported. I wanted to add information about each photograph, so I clicked on the first one - my grandmother taken in about 1960 - and clicked on the line. The "Edit Photo" screen opened and there were five tabs across the top - Info, Associations, Notes, Reverse side and Options. I filled in the "Info" items - the date and location. It appears, in the screen below, that there is a "facial recognition" feature in the software - her face, and the sleeve of her floral dress, are highlighted with a green boundary:
I clicked on the "Photos" button and waited ... and waited ... and waited ... and after two minutes I wondered why it was taking so long to see one photograph. I did a Ctrl-Alt-Del to see my Windows Task Manager and it said the program was "Not responding." No kidding!!
After ten minutes of w-a-i-t-i-n-g, I decided that the program was fatally hung up, so I ended it. Now I'm wondering if all of my photo importing and editing was saved.
