I bought it just for that, then I review the media and move to my 'master' media directory for use by RM.
still manual to input into RM5, but the download is taken care of.
(I had other reasons for getting FTM, but it is NOT nor will it be my main genealogy program. I am an RM person!)

I then went to my Family Tree Maker file in 'Documents' and copied and pasted the media file from this into my RootsMagic file that I had previously saved my gedcom file in. Remember to set within RootsMagic using 'Tools/Program Options/Folders/Roots Magic Data Files and something like (C:\Users\Ian\Documents\RootsMagic)
I then launched RootsMagic and clicked file/import/gedcom(other programs) and my media loaded together with the new gedcom family tree.
I had 736 items of media in my Family Tree Maker file, mostly Census/Birth/Marriage/Death documents and also photos of my ancestors and they all transferred correctly ie., the docs are in the source records individually against the correct source and the photos are showing against the correct individuals.
I had to tidy the transfer up a bit as some (about 30) scans were shown as a photo against an individual as well as showing as a doc against a source but this took me about 30 minutes and I now have a fully working RootsMagic with my current Family Tree of about 1000 individuals.
Hope this is of help as I know that you can download ancestry trees into FTM together with attached photos/docs in bulk, then you can transfer from FTM to RootsMagic.
