Apps / Software :: How To Associate All Photos With Windows Photo Viewer From Desktop App

Oct 24, 2013

First I thought it was slow. Then I got tired of waiting and figured out how to associate all my photos with the windows photo viewer from the desktop apps like I was used to with Windows 7

However, I would like to give it a fair chance to work. So, I am posting here.

When I click on the photo app, it shows some folders, sometimes it kicks me back to the desktop before I can click anytime. Other times, it may show a photo for a few seconds before kicking me back. Either way, this is not acceptable.

The app is not closing. It is still running because if I click the left corner, I see it and can access it again, if over for a second.

Is this experience common. I have had my windows 8 pc a week and I switched over to windows 8.1 about two days after I initially got it setup. I am a very experienced Windows 7 user. I am trying to be open minded about this new operating system.

Can't Open Photos Of Any Kind With Windows Photo Viewer

Jul 23, 2013

This issue it happens for too long I can't open photos of any kind with the windows photo viewer, I don't know how it happened and I don't remember when. When I try to open nothing happens.. its like something happens for a fraction of a second and nothing. I tried almost everything, well, accept for restore but there is no chance I am doing it the cost is too big.

I just noticed that when i try to view a photo file, two processes pop for a fraction of a sec and immediately disappear, one is COM Surrogate and the other Windows Problem Reporting.

Win 8 Photo Viewer Gone

Nov 14, 2013

Before upgrading to 8.1 I had a cool Photo Viewer. It was the default viewer so I do not have an app name.

When I selected Photos from the main Start screen, there would be 10 to 15 photos on the screen at the same time and different sizes (large thumb nail). Plus the photos changed individually in a random way. Selected photos randomly from different folders. Very cool.

After upgrading to 8.1 all I get are full screen individual photos in a slide show format.

Is there an app that I should download or am I missing something?

Graphic Cards :: Windows Photo Viewer Makes Pictures Yellow On 2nd Monitor

Jan 19, 2014

I don't really know whether this is related to the graphics cards or drivers or monitor or some driver/software issue but here it is: Windows Photo Viewer (my favorite image viewer) makes photos yellow, and also the empty space behind the photo. It only happens in this program, Photos app displays it just fine, so does photoshop. It's definitely a software issue, because everything else is displayed just fine, and it it was monitors fault, it wouldn't be visible in a screenshot:

And example of two firefox windows open:

Whenever I move the Photo Viewer windows across screens, it looks like its (de)applying the sepia filter. Again, it only seems to happen in this particular program, I haven't found any other occurrence. I have latest AMD drivers (and the issue has been since I got the new monitor - on the new monitor of course), I just removed both monitors drivers and let windows install then on its own, I don't know much about calibration, ICC profiles and such. What can I do?

Should I convert my account to local account and then again convert the account to windows account. Will it solve the problem.

Apps / Software :: Windows 8 Not Saving Autorotate Of Images In Gallery / Viewer Apps?

Nov 5, 2012

i had a bunch of images of a chest of drawers i wanted to sell. On my windows 7 PC all the previews showed the images sideways (landscape when they needed to be viewed in portrait). this is not a problem - expected behavior.

On the windows 8 PC all the images appeared portrait and in the correct orientation. images looked perfect. i understand that windows 8 reads the exif data and autorotates the images on previews and in the galleries. a neat trick.

On the windows 8 PC i put an ad on the website that i wanted to sell the drawers, and when i selected the images they previewed portrait in the file browser too. when uploaded the images all came out sideways (landscape) on the website.

this might seem like user error or a rudimentary problem at first, and trust me i have many years as a system admin under my belt, it is going to cause many problems of a similar nature for every user that touches it.

Windows 8 leads you to believe that your images are correctly oriented firstly, and then does not provide an easy way to adjust and save them even if you do know that they need to be adjusted. even in the windows photo viewer on the desktop (non metro viewer) you can rotate an image as much as you like with the buttons and it will not auto save it like it does in Win7.

In Win7 you could see that the image needs adjustment and its a good prompt for you to action, so you open it, rotate it, and it is automatically saved by the photo viewer so then whatever you do with it, it will be oriented correctly.

what i find absolutely crazy is that windows knows the image needs to be rotated, but does not save the image after it autorotates it, so it lulls you into a false sense of security.

Browsers/Mail :: How To Email Photo Attachments From Desktop

Jun 12, 2013

If I select a photo from 'Pictures' in File Explorer', right click & select 'Send to: Mail recipient', Mail opens up but only the title of the photo is shown as an attachment, no picture. Even if I click on the title nothing happens. This is the same in 'Outlook' or 'Gmail'. I can send a picture attachment ok by clicking on the 'paperclip' in 'Mail' which then takes me to 'Photos' but I would like to send it from the File Explorer.

Apps / Software :: Windows 8.1 Photos App - Unwanted Folders

I have just started using Win 8.1, and, on opening the Photos app I notice that there are "non" photo folders included.

Any way to restrict folder additions to those contained in a specific folder on the hard drive,[e.g. " Pictures"]...

Apps / Software :: Windows 8.1 - Photos App Won't Display Any Pictures In Library?

Apr 27, 2014

The Photos app on my Windows 8.1 Pro PC won't show any pictures either in the Pictures Library or in OneDrive. It only can display folders but not pictures. In other Windows Store apps, another weird things happens. The photos show up but with no thumbnails. I tried a reformat and reinstall and the problem disappeared. That is until I signed in my Microsoft account. The problem comes back.

NOTE: I'm using Hotspot Shield because an error appears every time I install Windows updates or Windows Store apps. I use Hotspot Shield to bypass this error but even disabling it doesn't solve the problem.

Apps / Software :: App To Draw On Top Of Photos?

Jun 7, 2013

We recently acquired a few Dell Latitude tablets for use at my work and I'm looking for an app which will easily and quickly allow me to take a picture, draw notes on top of it, and then save the file to be transferred to our server later. We need to document certain conditions at various locations while working in the field and this technique seems to be our best bet. We're currently doing this with ease with our iPads but I can't find anything for Windows 8. I'd be happy using the iPad to do this task but that would mean we would need both tablets since the other program we need is a Windows only program and the reason we bought the tablets in the first place.

Apps / Software :: Photo App Auto Launch

Jul 1, 2014

Every time I connect my camera to the USB, the Photo App automatically launches and it is driving me nuts. I wouldn't mind using the Photo App but it doesn't give me any option to delete the photos once transferred. I am aware I can right click the device in My PC and Import that way, (like the Windows 7 of old), but the App still opens forcing me to close the screen! I've clicked on the Default setting for Photos and chose Do nothing but the photo App still automatically launches!!! What can I do? I just want the Windows 7 method of importing.

Apps / Software :: Photo App Is Not Displaying Library Or Any File

Aug 17, 2012

The photo app is not displaying any library or file. Whenever I open any picture it opens in the PHOTO app but there is no next or previous feature. That's why I tried to include that folder (from which I want to see the photos) in my picture library. I included the folder into the picture library by right clicking on the folder and selecting the INCLUDE IN LIBRARY option and then PICTURES and the folder get included in it. I checked it manually. But the photo app is still not showing any single thing. its only written there IT'S LONELY IN HERE WITHOUT PHOTOS.

Any open source software that can be used by visitors/registered user of my website to upload photos? (similar to fllickr etc.)

I intend to create a photo website dedicated to a special camera. User then should be able to upload, comment and rate photos.

I know I could use flickr, picasa or similar, but I would like to have my own project ;-)

For forums, I use phpbb which is easy to install and maintain.
