Processing Pictures
This assumes that the notes during the tour were recorded with a Voice Recorder app. Camera time must be sync'd with the phone before tour. If off an hour because of a missed daylight savings change, there is a VBA macro to change it. But when IrfanView cleans the file it restores the time. The facility is still useful when needed to sync.

Set camera ISO to 3200 to increase depth of field. Lens used was 24-70 equivalent.

Adding Pictures to Plant Database
- xx Remove temp pd_ prefix with "Remove pd_ Prefix" button on the Pics sheet.

- Repeatedly run Find New for Plant List.
to find orphan plants and get names to match:
  Add To Plant List button.
  When down to only the new ones, paste result at top of PlantList and edit them there.

- Add walk to bottom of the c_TourOrder text file. Use link on Dashboard.

- Using buttons, process all.
