Duplicate Pictures

Spent a lot of time over the last couple of days adding pictures, and adding links to the person in the tree. Now when I look at some individuals I see pictures have duplicated. On one person I deleted one of each of the duplicated pictures, but while it looked right when doing it, afterwards the pictures were gone. How do you fix this?

Hi Sandy,

Note that I do not represent TP - I am just a Member like yourself, but as TP take so long to answer, I thought I would share what I have found when building my Trees.

Adding pictures to Stories will not add them to the persons they represent (if any) unless you add their names to the picture.

Adding Names to photos will always make those photos show on the profiles of the names added.

If you delete a Name it will delete the photo from that profile, but not delete the photo.

Have you added more than one Name to a picture?

If you have added more than one Name to a Photo - eg. You may add a Marriage Certificate which means that you could add the Name of the Bride and Groom, both of their Fathers and the Names of the Witnesses... This will duplicate the photo onto all the profiles of the Names you added. Deleting one Name off will not delete the photo from any of the other profiles.

I hope that helps.

Kind regards,

Linda May Rumble

Thank you Linda,

Appreciate your response. What has happened to Tribal Pages support? They used to be so good and the forums were very active and now neither seems to be the case. How disappointing. Have been a member here for years. Was very active and then through computer changes and some lost files, and compatibility issues, I just stopped doing research for awhile and am now back at it. Was surprised by some of the changes here in the site.

I think I was somehow making duplicates by tagging the face after doing the linking? So, I think for the time being I'm ok. Though, I'm not up to speed on the stories that you mention. That must be something new from my previous time spent here and it's not something I've used to date. Can you explain?

I have a similar problem where I add photos to an album, tag the names but when I look at a persons profile a lot of the photos are duplicated. If I delete one of them, they both disappear. In the albums there are only one photo of each. I do not know why they duplicate in the profiles and I have no idea how to resolve this problem. Hopefully someone will let us know?

Suddenly my face tags are becoming "other names" and appearing again in untagged faces, so I've got people tagged twice and there's no way to delete the "other names" tag. Don't know what to do except delete pictures and start again, but it's not something I'm happy to be paying for!

I am experiencing the same issue/problem. In addition, a lot of previously tagged photos have become un tagged. There’s a glitch somewhere the needs fixing.
