If you’ve taken pictures before with the BillionGraves application only to realize that you forgot to link two images together, don’t worry! You can fix it!
First of all make sure you are linking images that need to be linked together. If you aren’t sure which images should be linked, find out here. Note: the images you see below shouldn’t really be linked, we only linked them for demonstration purposes.
Here’s how to link images together you missed after taking the picture. (For more information on linking images while taking pictures in a cemetery read more here.)
1. Make sure you are logged in to the BillionGraves website. Make sure you have also uploaded all your pictures from the app as well.
2. Click “My Photos” under the “Photos” tab. Note: you will only be able to link any pictures that you have taken (and that are listed on your account). If you come across any images that need to be linked but you did not take them, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can fix those for you.
6. Click “Link Images.” You will then see the linked images below in the “linker history” section.
Remember, to reach our goal of 1,000,000 new records this month, we just need two thousand users to take 500 pictures each.
What if one of the headstones you come across has important information on the back? Or what if it’s an obelisk and has information on all four sides of the memorial? Remember, you can link images of the same headstone together while you are taking pictures with the BillionGraves app. Tap the link icon in the corner of the camera view in between each shot of the headstone you want linked together. So if you take a picture of all four sides of an obelisk, you will tap the link icon three times—in between each picture you take. Then, when the images are transcribed, all four images will be available on one screen for the transcriber to see. That way all the information for one headstone can stay together.
