Nick,
Is there anyway that Gedcom Census can / will be able to add the select image to the event that gedcom census creates?
I know that it adds it to the source citation that is created each time.

I would really like it if, when selecting 'all media for selected individual' the relevant census returns were listed in there too. I have started adding them to the events manually myself.

I wonder if this would be better as a wish list option in FH to show images attached to linked records when selecting an individual, as otherwise you will have to remember to mark them all as exclude from reports and diagrams to avoid getting the images more than once.

I'm not really sure why images attached to events have become such a prominent feature in FH4. Effectively adding an image to a citation which is linked to an event does the same thing. But that's not really the point of your question, Gedcom Census was written for FH3 and images linked to events were not really emphasised in FH3 and so GC doesn't have that option. The next entirely new version that will be released later this year will have support for event images (I've already written that bit!) but you'll have to wait for that I'm afraid.

As long as its coming, i dont mind waiting. :)
Its just nice to see at a glance all the relevant photos / documents that you hold for an individual all in one place, and if I am honest the gedcom census source citations are the only ones that are created and used for the purpose they were designed. I have generic ones - birth cert, service records etc etc etc and then include the detail on the event.
