Two images of the same document?
In a batch I am doing currently, there is two images of the same document. Should I index the same information for both entries, should I go back and mark one as "no" for "should this image be indexed"? Or is there something else I should do?
Since it is an exact duplicate of the same document, like a photographic copy, you need to mark it Duplicate Image.
How do I index duplicate images?
A duplicate image is another photo or a retake of a previous image in the same batch. The duplicate and the original images are both images of the same document or combination of documents, not merely two images of similar documents or two images of documents about the same people.
If an image is a duplicate of a previous image in the same batch, type the information in the data entry area for the first image, and mark the second image as a duplicate.
To mark an image as a duplicate, do the following:
- Make sure the small drop down menu in the top left corner of the screen is set to Step 1: Images.
- If necessary, click Next Image until you see the duplicate image in the main viewing window.
- In the column on the left is a question, "Should this image be indexed?" In the drop-down menu below the question, select No, Duplicate Image.
Note: If an image in a batch is a duplicate of an image in the previous batch, it cannot be marked as a duplicate and should be indexed normally.
You will then also select which image it is a duplicate of - For instance, the 2nd image could be a duplicate of the 1st image.1
Thank you @Melissa S Himes! I was looking for how to go back to the first step, and you pointed out where it is: in the top left corn of the screen (click on Step...) Thanks!0
