I would like to know how to transfer the media file images along with my rootsmagic (rmgc) files.  I have added some images and have those linked to family members on my computer. Now how do I transfer (share) those image files along with the information of the people those images is linked to?  I want to share all the images and details with family members and other computers.  I know those images reside on my computer, but how can I put those images in a file to share?  Thanks

The easiest way is to do a sharable CD.

It does a complete database and all the photos but a read only RootsMagic program.

 

If they have a full version or even the Essentials version of RootsMagic they can import and run the database from that and have all the media items as a start for a complete database of their own.

Alfred---thank you for the solution!!! I found under tools where you can make the shareable CD.  I was hoping to send this by email, but as long as I can share, I'm happy!
