Adding Photographs to my MyHeritage Family Tree - Post 2

Following my ill-fated try at uploading photographs to, as covered in Adding Photographs to my MyHeritage Family Tree - Post 1, I tried to upload the photos from within the MyHeritage "Family Tree" tab on the home page.

This worked well, although I could upload only one at a time, but they were attached to the person in the tree I selected.

1)  From within the "Family tree" tab, I highlighted one of my ancestors, Henry Austin Carringer:

His Profile appeared on the left-hand side of the screen, and there is an "Add photo" blue button below the "Photos" label.  I clicked on it.

2)  The "Add Photo" browse field appeared above the tree area, and I found the picture of Henry Austin Carringer that I wanted to upload in my computer files:

I clicked on the blue "Save" button and the small thumbnail size picture quickly uploaded to the MyHeritage site:

The screen above shows the picture on the Profile of Henry Austin Carringer.  It  also appears on the Family Tree box for Henry.

4)  I did this task for over 30 people in my tree, and then checked the "Photos & Videos" tab on the main menu, and in the "Albums" link it showed:

Both sets of photographs are in the "Recent Photos" album. 

5)  The "Family Tree" now has photos for some of my ancestors and relatives:

  I need to make more "head shot" photos for other relatives, and then upload some more.

This process was very intuitive and fast, and works!

My main reason for doing this is so that I can have playing cards made for the "Online Memory Game" so that I can get started teaching my grandchildren who their ancestors are.
