I only place photos in the Media folder that I wish to link to
individuals in Family Historian. All other photos are placed in
relevant folders in my computer. I have photos I crop for
specific purposes and reduce in size, but retain the original.
How do you deal with any photos of scenery or buildings unrelated
to your family history?

Just wondered how others approach photo storage in Family
I have a job on my "to-do" list ( which I am sure many on here
share), which is to scan and digitise the hundreds of old family
photos that I have stored in albums, shoeboxes, envolopes and the
bottom of drawers!.
Scanning and filing on some sort of media is somewhat tedious but
fairly straightforward. I have tried to take the approach that
Family hIstorian is my repository for everything in recent years
but I am not sure how to approach this one? I have scanned in a
few specific individuals and linked their faces for the purpose of
diagrams but am not sure how it works if say I had 100 phptos of
one individual and scanned them all in and linked them. Would it
make reports etc really messy?
Also how do people handle group photos? Do you make a link to
every person on the photo within your databse?
Any practical views or tips from those who have attached a large
database of photos would be really helpful and interesting.
