Hello

Would you mind showing me an easy step by step way to insert pictures from grave sites into my RootsMagic 7.0?

Appreciatively,
Sandra

This isn't the easy step-by-step solution you were looking for, but it may be a useful preface for a step-by-step solution.

  • You cannot insert pictures into RootsMagic. You can only insert links to pictures into RootsMagic.
  • In order to insert a link to a picture into RootsMagic, the picture must exist somewhere on your computer as an image file.
  • Therefore, there are two major steps to link pictures to RootsMagic: 1. store the picture on your computer, and 2. link the picture to RootsMagic.

Step 1 is the more complicated step and it doesn't really have anything to do with RootsMagic for find-a-grave and billion_graves. You would usually use your Web browser to download images from those two sites. Hopefully, that will get you started and you can ask follow-up questions if you run into trouble.

Jerry is correct you will have to save them using the Windows snipping tool or some other means and then name them appropriately, the video below may help you form your own system.
