how to connect an image to another profile

+5 votes
On the image upload page it states that "after uploading you can connect it to another profile" but does not explain how nor give a link to where it id explained.  I can't find anywhere to paste the wikitree link nor anything in the help.

First go to the photo and click on, an edit page will show. 

On the left where it says Edit Image Details , go to People and Things in the Image. 

Then where it says "Add person or free-space profile put their profile id number (like yours is  Weston-4750.)

Hope that helps.

... or if the person you want to add is on your watchlist, there's a box further down where you can just check off the name.

The list from my "watchlist" doesn't usually appear anymore when I'm editing Images.   Not sure what changed.
Hmm, I have no explanation for that.  It is always there for the photos I have uploaded, so I don't know what would be different

              I remember doing it now with people, flagging the others in the photo.  In this case there are no people involved, but I can use the same trick to attach the image to other profiles by pretending that person is in the image.
