    Photo Gallery: Organize, edit, and share photos

    • Answer
    • Windows Live Photo Gallery makes it easy to organize your photos, edit them so they look their best, and share them online. Now Photo Gallery supports many RAW formats so you can import and work with these files directly from your camera.

      Organize photos and videos in Photo Gallery

      Photo Gallery has tools to locate and organize the photos and videos by the information your camera adds—like the date a photo was taken—or by information you add—like tags, captions, and other information.

      To search your photos and videos, select the folders you'd like to search from the navigation pane and then, on the Find tab, choose the information you want to search for.

      Edit photos

      Photo Gallery has editing tools to improve the appearance of your photos by changing their alignment, exposure, color settings, and more. With Photo Gallery, you can remove red eye, retouch photos, and even add creative color and tonal effects to photos.

      To make automatic adjustments to a photo, double-click a photo, and then, in the Adjustments group, clickAuto adjust.
