Add Document Images

Discussion created by NDC on Nov 7, 2011
Hello all.  I'm working with Arc 9.3.1 on a personal SDE gdb.

I am working on a project where I add georeferenced Images into ArcMap and digitize utility features.  The issue is on large areas of study, basin polygons, this can mean adding 100+ images which is done by selecting the File Name and copy/paste searching in the host folder then manually dragging it into Arc. 

The Images are stored in a general folder and the PATH and FILE_NAME attributes within ArcMap.  Is there anyway that once I run my select by location, I can select all of these files, via FILE_NAME, and search, select, and add to ArcMap from the host folder in a batch-like manner?  Manually adding 100 images is such a waste of time! 

BTW, I have minimal script experience. 

Thanks a plenty!
