One big thing I leaned from Randy Whited’s RootsTech 2014 Lecture, A Beginner’s Guide to Going Paperless, was to add my complete source citation as metadata to my image files. To do this all you have to do is right click the image, go to Properties then click on the Details tab. You have several metadata fields, Title, Subject, Rating, Tags and Comments. Just click on the field that you want to use and a box will come up where you can type. I just copy and paste my citation into the Comments field. For now I am opting to leave the other fields blank. If you want to know WHY this is a good idea, watch Randy’s lecture.
