Other Great Legacy Features
Here are some other highlights of Legacy you might want to take a look at. Again, if you click on most of the screen shots, a larger version will be displayed so you can see the detail. The file size for each of the large screens is shown so you can get a feel for how long it takes to load it. You can figure on about 1,000 bytes per second if you are using a 14.4 K modem connection. Half that time for a 28.8 K modem.
Any number of pictures can be attached to each individual in a Family File. Pictures and scanned document images can also be attached to events, locations and sources. Legacy reads most popular picture file formats. These pictures can then be displayed at any time and also included in many printed reports.
The Picture Gallery is reached by pressing the picture icon on the Family View (the picture frame with two people) or by click on any existing picture displayed on either the Family View or Pedigree View. Up to twenty pictures are displayed in the window at one time. If more pictures are attached, a scroll bar appears that can be used to bring up more pictures.
