5.     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.

6.     Click on person’s name next to ‘Associate’ button to activate ‘Personal photo’ option. 

7.     Check ‘Personal photo’ option, mark the face of the individual and click ‘OK’.

If you would like to use a picture that you haven’t added at all yet, once you go to the list of photos associated with this person, add a new photo, using instructions described in the following article: How do I add a personal photo in Family Tree Builder?
