Yes. Remove it from your tree.

Are you using FTM2012? If you attach the photo to a private fact, that should prevent it from being synced to your online tree but keep in your FTM file.

There is a photo there, but I think that is because it is attached to the person in your FTM file. Try deleting the link to the person in your FTM file and leave it linked only to the private fact, and see if that works.

So in other words, I can't put a pic in the profile, even if I first add private fact and photo and link to it from there? I just like looking at my tree with all the cute little thumbnail pics of everyone. lol Thanks for your help!

I don't know if you are aware if this but in September, the option to make individual photos private was added in an update to FTM2012 - see http://blogs.ancestry.com/ancestry/2012/09/25/another-bonus-...
- "If you’re like me, you have personal media items like birth certificates and photos of living family members that you don’t always want to include in your online tree. Now you can keep media items private on an item-by-item basis when you sync (or export) your tree."
