Windows Live Gallery...

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Results Realty

My Windows Live Gallery (and a few other Windows Live components) upgraded a couple of days ago. 

Wow... 

Which way is the bike?I mean it has become REALLY cool to use this tool.  When I got the new laptop, it had Windows 7 installed.  One of the tools was the windows Live Gallery, and I spent a lot of time tagging people and adding descriptive tags for locations.  It was nice to be able to pull out images based on tags. 

But it really changed with the new update... 

Now I can combine tags for searches.  My wife is putting together a coffee table book of our boys as a present for the grandmothers.  Tonight, I pulled up images from my gallery (a couple thousand pictures) that were of both boys together... then each boy individually.  There were also a few events that she wanted pics from... and they were just as easy to pull up. 

But the real surprise was when I found some pics that needed tagging.  It was recognizing faces.  At this point it is only suggesting... and not for every one... but I can only imagine that it will get better as I tag more people.  This will be REALLY useful for tagging the other kids in my sons' classes.  I don't know them all that well, so after a few tags, the computer can help me recognize them. 

Of course, I have been loving the automatic filing by date.  That means I can pull up pictures by date or subject... or both.  That had been the drawback of having a couple thousand pictures, they were tough to search. 

Windows Live Gallery is a cool tool.  I'll have to revisit some of the other tools to see if they have stepped up enough to regularly utilize.

Sounds interesting I have to spend some time with this to get a better idea of what you are talking about here.

Lane:  Wow... recognizing faces.  That is simply amazing.  Next thing we know you'll be appearing on one of those network crime shows like CSI or NCIS... working in forensics.  Cool !

By the way... I have Windows 7 on one of those HP TouchSmart PC's... and I have almost no idea how to use all of these goodies.  I sure wish I knew what to do with all these toys.

Sounds great - my photo files are a mess!  If have thousands and spend so much time looking them.  Great idea to use it for grandkids.

I've been using the tagging faces feature in Picasa.  I have twin sons so it hasn't worked out to well with them, but for everyone else, it's been great.

I hope all that is fun for him because it is terrifying to me. Mother of a son with a dirt bike

The bike and flyer pix was cool. I presume the rider survived.

Or you wouldn't use the pix.

 

He did didn't he?
