          Please tell us exactly, step by step, what you're doing. It's hard to help with so little information.

           

          Because you're new to After Effects, I very strongly recommend that you start here.

            Yes, you are replacing the source. Either you merely replace the photo in the project window and it used in multiple compositions or you are trying to substitute a comp that is equally used in multiple places. Perfectly normal so far. What you insdtead need to do is replace the instances of your placeholders directly in the timelines of the respective comps by Alt+dragging the image from the project window onto the timeline bar you wanna substitute....
