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.

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?
