Is there an easy way to tag the media of places to all of the events that happened in that particular place? For example, I have a photo of a church where thousands of baptisms, confirmations, weddings and funeral took place, and I would like to have that one photo tagged to every single event that occurred there, without having to go through over 10,000 people one at a time to tag each of the events separately. And WHERE can you view the place media on a person's individual screen??? Is there not a way to view the place media except by going to the place list, double clicking on the name of the place, and then clicking on "Place Media"??? HELP PLEASE!

There is no way to globally tag media to multiple events, people sources, etc.

You can highlight the media in the Media Gallery or a Media Album, and tag each event, etc. where you want the media linked without having to go to each person's record to do so.

Click on Add tag and choose where to link it from the drop down menu on the left and, depending on your choice, make further choices on the right.

If I had thousands of events that happened in that church, I would be happy with tagging the media to the Place. Tagging it to so many events would soon make any Tag impossible to find on the Tag list.

On the Edit persons screen, highlight the fact. Click on the workd icon at the right of the Place box.

To access Place media from the Edit person screen, highlight the fact and click on the world icon to the right of the Place box. The Place list will open with that Place highlighted. If there is media linked to that place and one of those media has the Primary box checked on the Edit Tag screen, that photo will show in the right pane of the Place list.

If there is no media tagged as Primary, you will have to Edit the Place to check for linked media.

The corollary to the question is "Can we have a way to include media tagged to Places and Place Details included in:
- Person/Family Scrapbooks for associated events
- Person/Family Albums for associated events
- Event Albums (accessed from the Media column of the Edit Person screen)"

Places are solely associated with Events so it would seem logical that Place Media and Event Media should be closely coupled, too. Were there such an association, would you see any need to tag a Place Detail or Place media item to all the events that occurred therein when all outputs from RM would combine Place media and Event media?

A similar argument might be made about media tagged to Source and Source Detail: that they should be optionally combined with the Event and Fact media in the same areas as in the list above.
