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

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.

Chapter 9: Capturing and Managing Your Digital Pictures and Videos
Recently Imported
Shows a list of pictures and videos recently imported from a digital camera or
other media source.
Tags
Under the Tags category, you’ll find a list of all the tags you’ve used with pic-
tures and videos. Tags are keywords that aid in searching and organizing your
media. Clicking “Create a New Tag” allows you to create a new tag to be used as
a keyword. Clicking “Not Tagged” displays all pictures and videos that you
haven’t tagged. You can drag pictures or videos from the Not Tagged category to
a named tag category to add the tag to those items.
Date Taken
Use Date Taken to navigate through pictures and videos according to the year,
month, and date they were created.
Ratings
Use Ratings to navigate through pictures and videos according to the star rating
you’ve assigned to them. Assign a low star rating to your least favorite pictures
and a high star rating to your favorite pictures. Clicking “Not Rated” displays all
pictures and videos that you haven’t rated. You can drag pictures or videos from
the Not Rated category to a rating category to assign the rating to those items.
Folders
Use Folders to determine which folders are associated with Windows Photo Gal-
lery and to navigate through pictures and videos using views of these folders.
The Navigation Pane lists the total number of items in Windows
Photo Gallery as well as the total number of items you’ve selected. By
default, Windows Photo Gallery uses only your personal Pictures
folder and the Public Pictures folders. See the “Building Your Photo
and Video Gallery” section, later in this chapter, for details on adding
pictures and videos to your library.
