I've uploaded a patch to get around the problem that the family tree file (xxx.family), uses only
Fully Qualified Paths to photos (see
eg "C:\Users\My Documents\Family.Show\Photos"
Which means, if you send your "xxx.family " file to someone else to look at - unless this folder structure is on their machine, they can't view any photos that you have included in your family tree.
The xxx.family file is XML and it includes a Relative Path. That is "relative" to xxx.family - which is what you want
However, the Relative Path is never used.
The patch I've uploaded is a quick job, and needs more thought, but works - and is therefore a good illustration of what I'm after.
I intend to rework the code, and resubmit it, but I'm interested to get any feedback on this.
