How to Manage Research Images


Opening Saved Projects

First open the Tropy program, select Open, select desired file.

Opening a Tropy file from outside the program will often not work.

Finding Where Your Project is Saved

Right click on the project name, select Show Project File...

Photos Not Displaying in Item View

This is likely due to the original file being moved.  Item View accesses the original photo file, so if that file is moved, Tropy will not be able to find it.

To access or locate the original file

  • Right click on the photograph in the Photo Panel
  • Select Consolidate Photo
  • Select the original file in its new location
