Title 'Exclude from Focus Window' option for pictures
Category Focus Window
Description Requirement: 'Exclude from Focus Window' option for pictures

Problem:
At present the pictures displayed in the Focus Window follow the rules for exclusion from diagrams:
any picture with the 'Exclude from Diagrams' option selected is also excluded from the Focus Window.

When pictures linked to an individual have been arranged in the sequence desired for reports
(normally chronological) it is often necessary to exclude some of the early pictures from diagrams,
so that the picture which shows in diagrams is a representative mid-life picture.
This means that the individual's early life pictures are omitted from the Focus Window.
One solution might be for the pictures in the Focus Window to follow the 'Exclude from Reports' rules instead of the 'Exclude from Diagrams' rules.
However, a maximum of 9 pictures can be displayed in the Focus Window
and this means that for individuals who have more than 9 pictures their later life pictures won't show in the Focus Window
(assuming the pictures have been arranged chronologically).

Possible Solution:

A separate 'Exclude from Focus Window' option for pictures.
By default all pictures linked to an individual would be displayed in the Focus Window, up to a maximum of 9.
But for individuals with a large number of pictures it would be possible to exclude some selectively,
leaving a representative sample in the Focus Window.
