Windows Photo Gallery is very slow, deleting files or folders, how to solve this?

I'm trying to remove the additional copy or copies of my pictures in Windows Photo Gallery and after clicking on the photo and delete it it takes 2-4 minutes to remove.  What can I do to fix this?

Are the files being deleted archived on your drive hard master system
or they are on external hard drives?

It is possible that some maintenance could improve the issue.

  • Why my Windows Photo Gallery can't animate GIF files saved?

    I have a lot of saved GIF images which have BEEN lively on the website, saved as gif, but when I opened them, they act like JPEG files. They do not move at all and just stay on the first frame of the animation. On my mums laptop, Windows Photo Gallery DO plays GIF files.

    I use Windows Vista Home Basic, and laptop my mother is simply Windows Vista. I can only see my GIF files using Quicktime Movie Player and I have to Lop each time. Kind of pain when I would rather walk through the collection with the ease of the Windows Photo Gallery.

    Any ideas?

  • I need help with my photos, I scan them in my photo gallery, but they import very little anyone can tell me how to solve this problem?

    I don't know much about photo gallery

    I was wondering... What are the dimensions in pixels of the scans? I think it would help if you increase the DPI of your scans to 600 300 or even... look for the custom settings button.

    Also... If the scan bed (large white area) is included in any of your scans... try to get a glimpse and you will have an option to drag a rectangle around the exact part of the photo you want to include in your analysis.

    Find much info on the scanning on the following site:

  • Windows Photo Gallery: changing/deleting profiles from scanning?

    In Windows Photo Gallery, I can go to 'File' > 'import from camera or Scanner... ". "> Select the scanner to import from > to the"New Scan"select a scanning profile.

    Problem: There is the option 'add profile... '. "for the drop down profile, but not visible in the way to remove or modify existing profiles. I looked into some Options and properties I could find in the Windows Photo Gallery, but nothing comes of these profiles.

    I can't add a new profile with the same name as an existing profile. So, this led to a bunch of useless profiles which can be removed and confusing things. Very annoying.

    Hey Monimonika,.
    I had the same problem, but found the answer. I use Windows Vista.

    If you go to control panel and open "Scanners and cameras", you select your scanner and then click on the button "Scan Profiles. This allows you to change the existing profiles and even reset what is the default value.

    Hope this helps (although long after you have submitted your question).

    Good luck

  • How to delete a picture in Windows Photo Gallery tag files or specific files of photo files without deleting the image completely out of all of these places, leaving the image in one place vs. have in several places?

    I'm trying to manage my photos already imported and downloaded on my computer.  There is a master "All photos and videos" folder in the Windows Photo Gallery all in the top left of this program.  Below that is a folder "Images".  Below that are "Tags" with a certain number of 'labelled' folders below.  Lower in another main 'Images' folder with a folder of the yellow file beside him icon.  Here's this file, a number of other folder also named with the file yellow folder icon next to them as well.

    What I'm trying to do is manage all these photos and who want to keep a copy of an image in one of the folders of images with an icon of yellow folder next to him.  However, if I delete an image from anywhere in one of the places mentioned above, no matter which, a copy or copies of the image lies, the given image and all copies in one of the other place listed in the first subparagraph above are deleted and this specific photo is present ONLY in the recycling bin.

    How can I do what I want to do here?  I hope that's clear enough!

    Thanks a lot (someone)...

    Hi EKahn,

    When you delete a file from the library, you do not your computer delete it. If you delete a folder, photo library no longer displays images and videos that were in that folder, although the file remains on your computer.

    You can remove the folders that you have added to the Gallery of photos at any time, but you cannot remove files that are in the default Photo Gallery. Remove a folder prevents him from appearing in the photo gallery. If you delete a photo, it is deleted from your computer as if you deleted the images folder.

    Treat it as a corrupted user file.  To fix this usehttp://windows.microsoft.com/en-AU/windows-vista/Fix-a-corrupted-user-profile.  Use the new administrator account to do this.  Follow the directions given and everything will be fine and your new admin account should work normally.  Once you have ccnfired you can access, to all your acccess all of your programs and files, you can delete the old user obsolete and corrupt.

    That's all there is to it.  Now that we know, this is the profile and not the system, the solution has been set for us.

    I hope this helps. Feel free to post back with any questions as you go along.

    Good luck!

  • CR2 files not visible as thumbnails in the Picture Viewer or Windows Photo Gallery.

    I was using an Acer laptop for a long time, and I was transferring files from my Canon T3i CR2.  I was able to view these files as thumbnails.  I recently bought a new computer, an HP Z220.  For some reason after that I have transfer files to the Z220, I am unable to see these pictures as thumbnails, which is very annoying when I know there is a special move, I want to watch.  Without a thumbnail, I have to open each file in the Canon software, which can be quite tedious.  How can I fix?  Is there a file on the old computer, which was developed without the knowledge of me, perhaps by default, but is setting a different setting now on the HP?  Two computers use Windows 7.  Has anyone else had this problem?

    I wanted to come back here and to answer my own question, as I found the solution in a very short time. I went on Canon's site and downloaded a codec RAW update.  After installation, I was able to view CR2 (RAW) files on the newer computer.  I found the update through various research, after that I reduced the problem of the relationship between Canon's Digital Photo Professional and Windows Photo Gallery.  Maybe when I was using the Acer laptop, I had already downloaded the drivers updated to the DPP and he did not know or just do not do.  I do not know.  The thing is, while searching for an answer to this question, I found others have had the same problem and need a solution.  The short answer: you need to update the codec for Canon Digital Photo Professional RAW.  Here is a link to the download.
