Purpose of Mod

Beginning with Version 8, TNG recognizes the "_PRIM" tag, which indicates that a photo should be that person's primary (or default) photo. If that tag is present in the media link definition in your gedcom, then that photo will be set as the person's default. A problem arises, however, when a gedcom contains multiple photos for an individual which contain the "_PRIM" tag. This can happen, for example, when using the Legacy genealogy program which uses the "_PRIM" tag to indicate the default photo to use for every event that has a photo associated with it. As a result, TNG often uses an event default photo as the person's default photo. This mod corrects this by insuring that TNG does not select a default photo if that photo is associated with an event.
