I was using Legacy, but have decided to change to Geneanet completely. I have completed and uploaded a GEDCOM file of whole tree, but am unable to get the pictures and other things to go into a gedcom or upload. I managed to get 3 pictures of my daughter onto the tree, but am unable to remove some of them as almost the same. Tried to connect to computer to transfer individual pics but unsuccessful (and would take years) Please can anyone advise me how to do this/ Thank you

Hi, Thank you for your fast response. My pictures and docs are now in the Archive and pictures section of my tree. I got pictures into 3 individuals. It then stopped again. I restarted the computer but no difference. On one individual name the pictures appear in the box with information on the right of the screen, but wont move across to the Tree. I tried to drag it across as well. I tried through the download app and through the family tree itself. I am beginning to think I am stupid or just not technically minded, please help. Sheila

Dear Madam,

If some photos have not been automatically added as the profile picture, please scroll down the page, then click "Manage media files" and "Change the main picture" in the section "Photos and archival records". See attached screenshot.

I have tried everything including changing picture from BMP to Jpeg. My tree Bettola, Michele Claudine Barbieri, Maria Manara, George Barbieri. All within two generations of me will not show up in my tree. I have tried everything using Rootsmagic, or direct link to picture. Some pictures post and some don't.

Are you talking about pictures you have in your RootsMagic tree or about pictures you are manually adding to Geneanet?

If you are talking about pictures you have in your RootsMagic tree, it can happen that some of them are not automatically added as the profile picture to your Geneanet family tree. In this case, please scroll down the page, then click "Manage media files" and "Change the main picture" in the section "Photos and archival records". See attached screenshot above.

On Ancestry.com all my pictures are being posted using Rootsmagic. On Geneanet not all the pictures. Possible bug?

No, not a bug but a different way to import the pictures.
