I have not yet linked my RM family tree to Ancestry.com. One of the reasons I hesitate is that, while most of the media I have in my file can be shared (and in fact, much of it came from Ancestry.com), I have many media items that needs to remain private. From past experience I know that any media put on Ancestry.com is automatically shared unless otherwise marked as private. I also understand, if a media item inadvertently gets uploaded to Ancestry.com and it isn't marked as private at the time, it can take a couple of days for the privacy settings to kick in after the setting is changed and, given the number of users they have, it may be too late... others may have it and be sharing it.
My question is, when I share my file on Ancestry.com, will the media automatically be uploaded as well? If so, is there any way to mark individual media files on the RM side as private? (I could not find it if there is.)
