Re: Question about media files

In trying to import my images with the correct metadata, I discovered something interesting about FindMyPast images of parish registers. FMP seems to have embedded collection information in the EXIF metadata. Unfortunately; it's pretty high-level and does not identify the page of the image within the collection. However; FH7 does import it, if the switches are set to import metadata. It should also show up in the Windows metadata of the file manager.

For example:
image.png
image.png (21.12 KiB) Viewed 106 times
This is not really an issue for me, as I plan to embed my own info in the fields that FH7 imports.
However; some might find the existing info to be useful in some fashion, so I thought I'd mention it.
