  1. Hi Russ

    I'm a long time FTM user. I'm just starting to publish reports in preparation of making a book. I was very disappointed to find out that I can't include pictures in descendant reports. From what I was told this is not an option in 2011. So now I'm looking at other software. I found out that when FTM exports GEDCOM files that it doesn't include tags for images. I'm currently using 2009. Can you please tell me if this has changed in the newer versions?

  2. Kelly,

    Normally, REPORTS are just that, text Reports and Family Tree Maker has not included them in any Reports. You can include images in Charts.

    The same is true with Image Tags. Family Tree Maker does not include those tags. I know that a couple of genealogy programs include them, but not all.

    Images can be included in Charts, as mentioned, and in Family Group Sheets. The can also be included within the book feature of Family Tree Maker.

    As to Version 2011, will have to see what, specifically, is in the program when it is released to us.

    I will be updating this Blog with Version 2011 information, when available.
