Windows® Live® Photo Gallery
Microsoft has introduced a new tool, Windows Live Photo Gallery, in its latest operating system, Windows 7, that helps you to view, find, organize, open and edit photos and pictures. You can access all the pictures, videos from Picture folder in Windows Live Photo Gallery. It also allows you to print, order and share photos using your email client.
The left pane in Windows Live Photo Gallery displays a tree structure, like the Folders list, that allows you to display pictures by different criteria. To help you sort and search for pictures, you can add tags, ratings, and captions to pictures. The Find box is also there to help you. You can press the View button to change the icon thumbnail views, view a table of contents, or display groups and sorts.
