Geni does a great job of resizing photos or you, but photos with an aspect ratio of 4x3 are ideal. Some common examples of 4x3 aspect ratio are 640x480, 1024x768, 1600x1200, and 2048x1536. If the photo you are adding to Geni is going to be the main photo for the profile, try to make sure that the person's face is in the center of the photo so that their face shows up on their box in the tree.

Geni accepts the following file formats: jpeg, png, and gif.

There are three ways to upload photos to Geni:

Advanced Photo Uploader

You can upload 40 photos at a time with the Advanced Photo Uploader.

Simple Photo Uploader

You can use this to upload a small number of photos. The Simple Photo Uploader now uploads full resolution photos, complete with JPEG EXIF data intact. Click on a photo to view it in full resolution.

Add Photo Silhouette

You can upload a profile photo by clicking on the 'add photo' silhouette on a node or a profile.

Photo Details Page

After you upload photos (Advanced or Simple only?) you will see the photo details page. On this page you can tag the photos, choose which album (new or existing), add descriptions.
