    Pictures


    I have over 10,000 photos and I use ACD photo manager 2009 but it dosen't do a very good job in Windows 8. I keep them in another partition so I'm wondering if I should use Windows 8 to manage my pictures or figure out what's going on with ACD? I never use Windows to manage my data because I feel more in charge manualy doing them myself.

    Add your pictures to the Pictures Library and let windows take care of it.

    I did that but still my pictures won't appear on the metro photos app. Do you have an idea of why this can happen?

    Me, I just uninstalled the Metro Photo app and then I could choose the program that I viewed my photos with. I just hated how opening a photo from the desktop would pop me into Metro and then I would have to hit the Win key to get back to the desktop.
    Just say no to Metro Photo App.

    Have you tried Picasa 3, Google's answer to a photo manager, I find it excellent and also works well in the Consumer Preview.

    I agree that the metro app is a bit annoying for viewing pictures but you can use Picassa. It works great in Windows 8.

    Unfortunately, like many of the things in the Metro interface, the DEFAULT PHOTO VIEWER I WIN8 CP is the Metro Photo Viewer. You don't have much choice in the matter (until someone can show how to change the file .ext association for .jpegs and the like). By deleting the Metro Photo Viewer, it forces Win8 to let you choose another program for a default viewer.

    You don't need to delete Metro Photo, right click a picture, click choose default program then select which ever you are comfortable with.

    The metro app is not well designed the thumbnails are MASSIVE, with 100 or 1000's of pictures you cannot find the one you want. I yes ACD See, it seems to work ok I have right clicked on a photo & open with & choose ACD as the default program.

    The problem I seem to have is that, although I have pictures in my 'pictures' library, I can't seem to find a way to load them into the Pictures app and for them to stay there - the picture will open using the app but once I close the image, it's gone from the app which then informs me how lonely it is. The funny thing is, every image from the Camera Roll on my Windows Phone is there for me to view after I synced my phone to my laptop yesterday.

    Can anyone give me any advice on how I can actually get my pictures from the library to stay in the app?
