Fact Type Pictures

Post by gfpgfp » 12 Jul 2020 08:57

I have quite a few pictures that I would like to associate with individual facts in eg the individual summary report. At present all picture type 'other' are grouped above or to the side of the text.

This is related to your recent posting Multimedia display for each fact (17927).
Please give explicit examples of your Multimedia 'pictures' as it is unusual to have so many 'pictures' for the Facts of one person. Are you sure they are not source documents that would be better as Source Citations?

Thanks for your reply.

For example, for my father I have 5 pictures taken during a holiday in Europe in 1935, 2 pictures at his school, 2 pictures of his house, and a number of individual pictures. As you suggest I include them at present as source citations, but it makes a long list - 4 pages of 16 citations (so far), with eg census, birth, death and baptism mixed together. Since thumbnails of census etc records are illegible I normally choose not to show source pictures - but then I have none of the pictures I'm really interested in!

Any ideas?

You can alter the size of the images in reports to make things like census records readable. Just go into the report setting options

Yes, as Colin says, use the Reports > Options > Sources tab to increase image size.
See Knowledge Base > Report Options ~ Sources Tab.

If those pictures you mention only apply to your father's Report, and you don't want source documents such as BMD and Census records displayed, then consider attaching the pictures to the Citations instead of the Source record.
Then use the options for Show Source Pictures and Show Source Citation Pictures to enabled/disable the two groups.

You mention the number of pages of citations, but if you include several reasonable size pictures then that is going to significantly increase the number of pages wherever you insert them, whether within Facts or among Sources.
