    Click on the pictures folder box, first square on the left.

    Click image for larger version

    Do you see 1 folder, 3 files? Try adding more picture files.

    That's fine. So your pictures library folder has 2 pics. Find some more pictures.
    Try adding more picture files.

    You might want to check in the Public Pictures folder, sometimes the Library's are linked to the Public folders and things end up inside the Public folders for some strange reason.

    I just noticed something. I copied 5 pictures from an old hard drive and pasted them into my picture library They were grayed out compared to the other pictures and didn't show up when I started the app.
