Getting Started with Windows Photo Gallery
You can use the Navigation toolbar’s Quick Access buttons as follows:
Allows you to add folders, import images from cameras and scanners, and
manipulate existing files.
Allows you to edit a selected picture using Auto Adjust, Adjust Exposure, Adjust
Color, Crop Picture, and Fix Red Eye options.
Displays an Information Pane for a selected picture or video that provides details
about the related file.
Allows you to print selected pictures or the first frame of selected videos.
Allows you to email selected pictures and videos.
Allows you to create a DVD video using Windows DVD Maker. Only comput-
ers running Windows Vista Home Premium or Windows Vista Ultimate have
Windows DVD Maker.
Make a Movie
Opens the selected pictures and videos in Windows Movie Maker so that you
can make a movie. Only computers running Windows Vista Home Premium or
Windows Vista Ultimate have Windows Movie Maker.
Allows you to open selected pictures or videos in another program, such as
Microsoft Office Picture Manager or Microsoft Paint.
Searching and Browsing Pictures and Videos
The Navigation Pane, shown as a separate panel on the left side of Windows Photo
Gallery, and the Quick Search box, shown in the top-right corner of Windows Photo
Gallery, provide quick access for organizing and displaying pictures and videos by
type, tags, date, ratings, and folders. As Figure 9-3 shows, the Navigation Pane
includes several top-level categories and subcategories. Selecting a category or sub-
category displays related pictures, videos, or both.
You can use the Navigation Pane categories as follows:
All Pictures and Videos
Under the All Pictures and Videos category are Pictures and Videos subcatego-
ries. These subcategories allow you to quickly return a list of all pictures or all
videos in folders that Windows Photo Gallery can use.
