if you hover above the photo there should be 3 buttons

Edit Set profile photo Delete

if you click on set profile photo it should add a small photo to the tree ? I assume that is what you are trying to do

sometimes it takes a few minutes to appear

The photos are already attached to the correct person. They are visible in the details tab but I want to see the thumbnail photos on each person on the face of the tree. Some are already there. I have tried your instructions but could not see a set profile button. Where is it?

Thanks for the assistance



Janet Report 17 Mar 2013 20:16

Go to View my relatives profiles from relatives tab on main menu
put in name of person you want to add photo to and search
click on the one you want
click see all photos and media (assuming you have uploaded photo to keepsafe) already
the there is a set profile button , click this

I don't think you can on the new GR tree, Everything now goes into the details panel



Helen Report 17 Mar 2013 19:35

Could someone please help me with how to display photos.
I have a number of photos in my keepsafe which are attached to people in my tree.
Some are visible on the tree itself but some are not. I can see these if I open the details tab on the right. How do I make them visible on the tree?
