I have a large number of directories that contain pictures that I want to associate with the various people in my tree. At this point, I think that all of the pictures have the EXIF data modified to include the names of the people in the picture.
I know perl, so I’m comfortable writing a script to scan the tree and create a list of pictures in each director, where a directory would be a single source… Think of it as a roll of film… Each file in the directory would be a single picture… but they could be pictures of documents or people or even short movies.
Does anyone have an idea how to approach this? CSV or GEDCOM or ??? Is there any limit on the number of pictures that can be listed in a Gallery? If it’s CSV, what would be the structure of the file? I guess that Ideally, I would be creating Sources and Citations together.
As a step 2, I can extract the names of the people from the pictures. I can extract the the person number from Gramps. Is there a way to upload the association of the picture to the person?
