LISTENERS’ FEEDBACK: Photo ID software & more

FREEBIE PHOTO ID SOFTWARE
From: Al Jensen
DearMYRTLE,

Regarding footnoteMaven’s interview on DearMYRTLE’s Family History Hour 28 Aug 2007 genealogy podcast, you might pass on to your listeners that there are several FREE software programs that will store your captions, photo descriptions, and other particulars in pictures, and will probably be as suitable for most people as the expensive Adobe product. Among these are IrfanView, Pixvue, and Google’s Picasa. IdImager also has a free version. There are also a number of similar programs available for purchase at very reasonable cost.

I have recently been involved in digitizing old negatives and adding annotations to them before there’s no one around to provide the necessary information as to who where, when, etc. It’s the modern equivalent of writing on the back of the photo! The advantage is that it’s easy to provide multiple copies to others.

HOW TO OPEN THE PODCAST IN A NEW WINDOW
From: Teresa
DearMYRTLE,

Is there a way to get a link on your podcast to open in a new browser window. I clicked on a link and lost my place on the podcast. :(

DearTERESA,
YES, in any web browser, before clicking to view a new page, RIGHT-CLICK instead.

From the pop-up window select either:
OPEN in new window
or
OPEN in new tab

Older versions of web browsers do not support tabs. But either way, you can then easily switch back and forth between webpages while listening to DearMYRTLE's Family History Hour genealogy podcasts.

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)
