This photograph https://www.wikitree.com/photo/jpg/Van%20Weiligh-2 is only visible as primary photo on this profile - why?

WikiTree profile: Arend von Wielligh
closed with the note: I now added the other baptism image uploaded after I posted this G2G question and the offending image (still only visible as primary record) disappeared. Technically the issue was not solved, as the image still wasn't visible in the right hand side of the profile.

You need to add Arend's Id to the photo page. On the left side of the page scroll down to Add person or free-space profile and put in the id and save.

I did it for you.

Thanks Anne, but the strange thing is that (even though it is the photograph belonging to his brother Charles), that I've never seen a primary photo attached to a profile but without it being visible to the right hand side of the profile. If you had not added the ID, how come it was visible only as primary photo? Edit: I now added the other baptism image uploaded after I posted this G2G question and the offending image (still only visible as primary record) disappeared.

You can add the photo ID of any image on Wikitree as the primary or background image to any other profile on Wikitree. There's a small box ("Edit photo settings") to add it on the right side of the edit view.

Alternately, you can upload an image to a page, make it the primary photo, then remove the image from the profile (to someone or somewhere else), but it will stay the primary unless you specifically remove it as primary.
Thanks Anne, I'm aware of that. Only - this primary photo only had one person under it (the ID then) - as I said it was the brother, not this profile (Van_Wielig-1). So it seems weird to have a primary photo but no WikiTree-ID (Van_Wielig-1) in the supporting WikiTree photo page. Anyhow - it has now been replaced. The link is gone.

Correction - see here: https://www.wikitree.com/photo/jpg/Van%20Weiligh-2 - the brother. Only - as I said - Van_Wielig-1 was not visible in the box that links other profiles to this image.

Maybe I'm baffled also. :)
