Hi guys, thanks for your input.
Upload images from a particular site visit (might be a couple of dozen images, up to 100 or more).
- Look for repeat subjects (for example, a species of sponge or ascidian)
- Hold down the Ctrl key, and click on each of those showing the same species.
- Then click the "combine" button near the top of the page.
If I'm working with a large batch of images, I sometime "miss" a shot, so end up using the combine function again, after I've already put in some provisional IDs. When I use the "combine" button, with multiple sightings highlighted, all ID data is lost. It would be great if this merging of records would retain an ID if one is already in place.
I hope that clarifies my process?
In my experience, use of the "combine" button in this way does not retain ID data.
Thanks for turning your attention to this.
