Along with Windows Live Writer Beta 3 there were a bunch of other tools released as part of the Windows Live Suite. It included
I have been using the Photo Gallery application from the past one week and looks like I have fallen for one more product from Microsoft.
Windows Live Photo Gallery Beta is a photo organizer that you can use to view, manage, and edit digital photos and videos. By default, all the photos in the Pictures folder on your hard disk appear in Photo Gallery. Additionally you can also add other folders on your hard disk to Photo Gallery Beta. You can also add photos to Photo Gallery Beta by importing them from a digital camera or memory card.
Photo gallery can quickly show you the photos based on date and you can also start tagging and rating your photos. Viewing photos is a treat using Photo gallery. The photo load speed is amazing and it reminded me of AcdSee ! The slider based zooming is another unique feature worth nothing
Other than simplifying viewing of photos, the gallery app also provides handy tools to fix/edit the photos.
The “Fix red eye” feature worked like a charm and I was able to give back the human look for some of the “monstrous” looking photos.
Other feature include:
- Printing/Ordering Prints (No service provider available in India)
- Creating panoramic photo
- Burning photos to CD
- Publishing photo to Windows Live spaces and videos to MSN Soapbox (Wish Flickr was also included !)
A must have tool for Windows !
