There are actually two ways to publish family pictures on GeneaNet: the photo gallery and the online family tree. Each method works a little bit differently and they are not connected.


THE PHOTO GALLERY

GeneaNet - photos et portraitsSelect the My GeneaNet : Galleries : Pictures menu.

Then you will be taken to a page where you can upload one picture or several picures at a time, and manage your album.

1. Files that can be uploaded:
All images must be in the file format of: .gif, .jpg, .jpeg, .png.

2. Upload picture:
First, fill in all required information. If you can't identify the picture, check the "add this portrait in the unidentified photos database" option and the other searchers could help you.

To upload several pictures at a time, you will need to build a batch text file. The file format is clearly explained on the site.

3. Manage your album:
You can remove any picture from your album or modify the information of any picture. To replace (overwrite) a picture, you will need to delete it and upload it again.

Note: The purpose is to share ancestors pictures so the family picture gallery is moderated. Please, don't try to upload a photo of your baby!

THE ONLINE FAMILY TREE

1. Files that can be uploaded:
All images must be in the file format of: .gif, .jpg, .jpeg, .png.

2. Attach a picture to an individual:
Go to your online family tree homepage. Log in as a "wizard" and select an individual. On the bottom of the page, click on the "Update Individual, Family, Media" link. You will be taken to a new page where you will just have to click on the "Send an image" link (see below) to upload a picture.

Note: The images attached to a GEDCOM file are not imported in your online family tree. You will need to upload them manually. But the images won't be removed and their links won't be broken each time you will update your online family tree from a GEDCOM file!

ATTACH AN EXTERNAL PICTURE TO AN INDIVIDUAL

You can attach an external picture to an individual but it will be deleted each time you will update your online family tree from a GEDCOM file!
