TreeView User Guide

Adding a media item

You can add media items to each individual in your database, such as a photograph, video clip, audio file, and more. These can be added to the individual themselves, and to every fact for the individual. You can use the 'Media' tab in the 'Edit Individual' window to add any of these to the person, or you can double-click one of the facts in the 'Facts' tab to add it to a fact.
