I am finally sitting down and working on converting my tens of thousands of paper photos over to digital format.
I am a genealogist and have been collecting family photos for over 40 years.
I have two needs and I am looking for one or two tools that will enable me to do this the easiest.
1) I need to add a white border only on the bottom of each photograph and then be able to add a label to the photo.
The length of the label will vary by the number of people in the photo and other information, an example would be:
"John and Jill Smith at DisneyWorld 1993-06-15"
I have tried Gimp and Pinta, but both of them make you resize the canvas, then pick a font size and then type your label.
This method is very hit and miss, as I end up resizing the text or canvas many time to make it all fit.
2) I then need to enter this same information into the meta data for sorting purposes.
Let me know if anybody knows of a tutorial that shows how to do all of this and I can work off from that.
