Beginner here, having a heck of a good time organizing and compiling info on plant species and cultivars used in horticulture. Excel really, really doesn’t do it!!!    Bumbling along fairly well.

 

Question: the photos storage structure  For now, I plan to use  containers for simplicity as there aren’t all that many. Each photo can have show more than one species, tho’ probably never more than 10 .

 

How do I structure the photo storage?  1) I could have a table for each photo tho’ that seems excessive. 2) Or I could have one Photos table with  a container field and ten species’ fields (and other necessary fields of course).    I would need to be able to search the photos using species names either manually, or ideally using a script.  I don’t want to build something that will foul up searchability.

 

If someone could get me pointed in the right direction I would ever so grateful.
