Was trying to find out why I have copies of the same photos on the family page..took a look at the Photos folder for the Tree Builder and see its large in size 10 meg and there are many copies of the same photos in there. Is that needed?
When I looked on my hard drive I noticed that MyHeritage – photo folder and an extraordinary number of photos stored. Mega number of copies of each photo. I deleted them and discovered that I lost my photos. Now I again have 1000’s of extra photos. Why is this so? Can I delete some of them? I understand that your programme makes 'a' thumbnail of each photo, but I have 6 or more of each photo. Why so many? Maria
FTB normally makes two thumbnails from each photo you add to the tree. You can tell which are the thumbnails because they have AUX in the file name. The original photo is the first with the thumbnails coming directly after.
If you have six copies, check to see if those photos are also personal photos for people in the tree or if you added the photo twice by accident.
When you create a personal photo two thumbnails of it are created as well due to the fact that the personal photo is used in many places such as charts and reports.
If you delete the copies, yes, you will lose photos in your tree.
