The FamilySearch.org program allows you to switch between those trees with a portrait, the fan shape or without a portrait. You can also click on an individual to get the details of that person’s life — a personal card.

Just create a free account on FamilySearch.org and upload a family tree or create a new tree. Select the ‘portrait’ style from the drop down on the left. Click on the circle for the ancestor you will add a photo. It doesn’t have to be a professional studio portrait, sometimes all you might have is a candid photo. You will be able to crop the photo so just the head and shoulder of the ancestor is shown.
