Re: FTM 2014 media question

In Reply to: FTM 2014 media question by Dale Carmack of 60371

FTM has no ability to look in to an image file, to tell what is in the image. (To my knowledge no program has this ability)

Since to my knowledge there is no way to attach a flag to a media file ie place in a category, you would have to develop a work around.

On such work around that comes to my mind is to append each media file with a code. For an example
if the file is a picture. change: JohhDoe.jpg to IM_JohhDoe.jpg
if it is a census change: Census1850.jpg to CS_Census1850.jpg

You could develop the code to what you wish.
