Working with images and pictures in iFamily

Post by Warwick Wilson » Tue Feb 15, 2011 4:41 pm

The simplest way to get images into iFamily is to Drag and Drop the picture from either a webpage or a file as shown below:

Use of the menu option File -> Import Pictures... is intended for use post-Gedcom-load, it will aid you in adding pictures that were referenced by the Gedcom but not initially loaded. (b/c Gedcom's are text based).

The [+] button at the bottom left of the pictures panel will allow you to enhance and crop pictures or add notes and source references to the data record.

Dragging an image from the pictures panel to another person on the context diagram will copy the image link. The image can be recropped for the second person's profile.

Images are by default copied into the ~/iFamilyData/Pictures/ folder.
