I'm doing it in Excel, but it's a monstrous job to create hyperlinks to hundreds of photo titles to view them, one, by one, by one.
I can't automate it in Excel for mac.
I've tried automate and macros, but none will simply:
take the selected photo-title from the list, copy and paste it into a search box, find the photo, select it, and generate a hyperlink.
I'd like to find some software that would make it possible to link up photo titles to their files to view in Preview without doing it one by one.
All the photos are in the same folder with names like 0001.jpg, 0002.jpg. It ought to be easier than this.
Lundberg, you're right. I was searching for databases that would accomodate photos. When I started searching for photo cataloguing everything fell into place. First I found I good cheap product called PIXA. A nice little cataloguing tool and it makes thumbnails so that you don't have to be connected to a particular drive to see the photos on that drive. Then I realized that since I pay for Creative Cloud, there might be a good cataloguing tool from Adobe. And I downloaded Lightroom. It's terrific. Everything I could ask and more. Thanks. L.
