How does one remove the white space around an individual's portrait? There is either white space on the top/bottom margins, or the left/right margins.

The white space is not associated with any reports or charts. It is a picture to replace the blue (male) or pink (female) silhouette picture.

The reason that you are seeing this white strip, is because the "thumbnail" display area is different from the area of the image.
The cropping allows the image to be "Cropped" where needed to fit in the predesigned display area.

John D,
The tools-->options setting works in FTM 2012.
But, is there any similar setting at the ancestry.com family tree?

I had used "square" pictures for the recent photos I had added, but the early ones are not square and show white space.

The setting you suggested fixes this in FTM 2012 but there is still white space showing at ancestry.com

I assume the suggestions were FTM specific since you posted your question on the FTM board. The member trees board might be a good place to post it.

David, Unfortunately, selecting the crop feature in tools>options did not correct the problem. I think I need to play with the size of the picture before linking it to a person.
