How to Set the Quaker Star as Profile Picture

1. On the right side of the page, you'll see a list of "People and Things in this Image." Scroll to the bottom of that list and click the tiny link to add/edit.

2. Now on the left you'll see a long list on the left of People and Things in this Image." At the end of the list you'll see "Add person or free-space profile" and a text box. Add your ancestor's profile ID (e.g. Newby-86).

3. Next to "Certainty that this is the person or thing in the image:" select the certain radio button. Don't bother filling out the location or date fields, as these display the same on all profiles using the Quaker Star image, not just yours'.


5. Now the Quaker star will show up as an image for your ancestor, but you also might want to make it your primary photo for him or her. Go back and again click the tiny add/edit link you clicked earlier.

6. On the right side, you'll see "Set as Primary Photo" and a long list of people, some who have a check mark in the box to the left of their name, some who do not. Find your ancestor's name and click the checkbox. Then scroll down and click SET PRIMARY.

I'm anxious to use the red and black Quaker star on the profile page of my Quaker kin. I have not been able to determine just how to do this. Can someone please instruct me? Thanks!
