That's good news ...I don't see that view on my FSFT persons at this time. I signed out and back in just in case that mattered. Perhaps it's only for LDS members at this time?
I am guessing you are right. Thanks for testing it anyway. I suppose maybe RootsTech will bring the public release of photos. I never know.
I'm not sure if the feature is related to LDS church membership, but the new tab only shows for users who have been to the photos site (which may currently only be open to LDS church members). People must go to http://familysearch.org/invite/photos to get access to the photos site.
Thanks for your kind and thoughtful comments.
