Wow - this takes away all my power to decide! This can't be right. I would suggest this is an urgent fix required in the software otherwise this is open to a abuse (I could make Steve Jobs a member of my site and he has no say in it?).
I am surprised there has not been an outcry about this in this era on internet democracy.
It is possible to merge two family tree projects in Family Tree Builder.
In order to merge trees one of them will have to be exported to GEDCOM file format.
Please note that there is currently no tool in place to detect duplicates and fuse them together. This means that you will need to detect duplicates manually. This can be done by sorting alphabetically, and then deleting them.
You can read about how to merge two trees on Family Tree Builder here.
Thanks Lior. Using FTB (which I have) is not an option for us as we have copious photos attached to individuals. Did I read somewhere that MyHeritate is developing more advanced sifting and merging software, that uses smartchmatch technology to detect duplictes and ask before importing?
There is SO much duplicated work out there on trees that this is going to become essential.

In order to solve the issue, please delete the duplicate photos from your family photos album.
In order to do so, please first, enter your fanily site > settings > content > check in the box for "photo albums" > save.
Now the tab "photos & videos" will appear on the upper bar of your family site > please enter this tab > go to your name in the list of the tagged people > click on your name > open the duplicate photos > click "x" button in order to delete the photo.
I would like to have some advice to fix a problem that I have with my project:
Of some unknown reason my original project have been saved into two different ones - how do I integrate the content of the extra unwanted project into my original one without anything getting deleted? I know I of course could write alle the info into the project manually, but I hope that this not would be needed.
I can request a GEDCOM file to be exported but nothing subsequently happens.
By selecting Family Tree / Manage Trees / Export to GEDCOM and clicking on the "Begin the export" button I get the message that it is being generated and will take a few minutes - and I will receive an email with a link to the file.
The "Begin the export" button then greys out and I don't get an email.
(Sorry but I put this on the message board and now realise that it should be here on the support forum.)
Sorry but my last reply was based on my wrongly held belief that I would receive an email with a gedcom file attached.
I now realise that it is just an email with a link to the file - which is more mystifying as to why I have not received the emails sent on June 11 / 12.
I received your email re the reply to my post and I also regularly receive news about Myheritage events - so cannot comprehend why the aforesaid emails didn't arrive - unless there is something different about them.
