Photos are not saved as part of the GEDCOM file format. It's a shame, because that would be handy. Someone suggested using cloud based photo storage for your photos and putting each person in their own album. Or using something like Google Sites Wordpress to make webpages with the photos on them. Either way, you can put the URL for the photos in as the website for the person and then the information is always available. That doesn't really help if you are including pictures on your family tree.
