How do I add a personal photo in Family Tree Builder?

Here are the steps for creating a Personal Photo (the thumbnail face shot that shows on the genealogy card in Tree View in Family Tree Builder).

1.   Open your family tree in the Family Tree Builder software.

2.   Navigate to the person’s card you would like to add the photo for.

3.   Click on ‘+ Add Photo’, where the person silhouette appears.

6.   Click ‘Finish’.

7.   Now you will arrive at the 'Edit Photo' window. You can add details about the photo here, such as Title, Date and Place the photo was taken. Use the tabs to add extra information about a photo.

8.   A personal photo will always have a blue box around the face when you are in the 'Edit Photo' window. A photo which is only associated to a person, but is not the personal photo, will have a red box around it.
