I've put a pushpin on my house as you did. How do I change the icon?

I liked after I created a tour it provided me the play back history of our home area over a span of years.
Thanks for the output files! What file sizes of KML's are they huge? or small?
5:07 PM
Mary Lou Perlot to Louise Maine
5:07 PM
I put in three sites. How do I put them on a tour and then save as you said?

I think I might use this to create a virtual tour of important civil rights movement places that I went to on a trip a few years ago. I can use a combination of my photos and other photos to show the kids the actual places where these important events happened.
