Research Photo Management in Tropy Online
Do you work with images in your research? Do you struggle to keep them all organized and searchable, or wish you could easily add searchable notes and tags to them? Tropy is a free and open-source software that allows you to organize and describe photographs used in your research, allowing you to quickly assign metadata like creators, dates, locations, and tags for your photographs all in one searchable platform. In this one-hour workshop, we will show learners the basics of Tropy, including importing images, assigning metadata using one of Tropy’s metadata templates, and assigning tags, as well as discuss how Tropy supports recommended practices in data management.
