    Photo App


    The photo app didn't seem to work for me. I already have my Picture Library linked to H:\Photo but its not picking up. Only picks up from Public Pictures. I've also checked the security of the folder and have given full access. What am I missing?

    Ps I upgrade from Vista Ultimate.

    works ok for me,
    did you use the Library Tools>Manage library to add your folder? (not sure if thats any different to just linking a folder)
    i did have to restart to 'kick' the photo app previews

    I didn't really linked it per se.. You know how you could do a right click on My Pictures and select Location so that My Pictures will always reference to a different drive/location? That's what I meant by 'linking'.

    You said yours work, your photo folders are in a separate drive (i.e. not in c:\ )?

    hi habibi, yes, actually one location on another partition on the same drive and one location on another partition on the other harddrive in my laptop.
    not sure about the click on My pictures to change location.
    its easy to leave the standard user libraries where they are and just add locations in as i explained. you can add several locations in each library (pictures, videos etc).
    you cant add a removable drive as a location but to get around this just create a shortcut (when the drive is connected ) in a reference location.

    Currently, there are lots of Android Development devices which have been loaded with the advanced camera capability. A few of them are already loaded with the high-resolution 12 MP camera, just like the upcoming HTC Vigor as well as Sony Ericsson Xperia Duo. But still there are many customers who usually do not feel completely preferred with the picture or photograph results.
