I will start by saying in the Program Options I do NOT have a value set for "Multimedia files", which might(?) affect the results, not sure.
My images are in directory: <GENEALOGYFolder>\<EXHIBITSfolder>
My database is in directory: <GENEALOGYFolder>\<DBfolder>
I downloaded a couple facts with attached (US census) images:
these ended up in a unique new folder: <GENEALOGYFolder>\<DBfolder>\<DBname>_media
Does this always happen? Are all Ancestry image downloads destined to go into this flat folder? Or could future image downloads go in a different directory (or new subdirectory)?
Would having a defined "Multimedia files" folder defined affect the results?
My main issue is I want to keep all images in my <EXHIBITSfolder>, and also keep items organized into subfolders.
One solution I see is to just move the downloaded images into my own <EXHIBITSfolder> in the desired subfolder, then use the "fix broken media links" tool.
This should work OK with no issues, correct?
What about syncing from other sites than Ancestry: will downloaded images go into the same ..._media folder that Ancestry image downloads do?
