I have not been able to find any instructions for swapping parent and child photos. One of the minerals on my home page would be better if I swapped the parent for one of the child photos.

I do not want to have to delete and reload.

On the edit p[age for the "child" photo. in the section "Other Photos of this Specimen"

there may be a link "Click here to make this photo (XXXXX) the parent"

If you don't see this you should repost here with the photo you want made the parent and one of the managers can do it for you.

I did look for that option prior to posting the message. The child photo that I want to swap is 432236 for the parent photo 431599.
