No... It's not. (A solution.) There are a lot of other controls missing also. About 2-3 times a year, I need to sort and edit literaly hundreds of pictures. The features I had in the XP version helped me do that. I have lost all functionality except to view the pictures. I don't know about the Vista features, because after a short trial I stayed as far away from it as possible. Why are so many of the tools I use being ripped out! I wonder what $200.00 third party software I will have to buy now, that dosn't do the same job I did in XP for free, and better!
I feel ripped off. The solution is put the controls back. Why were they taken out?!!!
I actualy LIKE 7! Even though it was built off the Vista platform, it seems to be very stable. The learning curve is VERY STEEP. It torqued me that such sweeping changes were made without apperent reason or regard to previous users; but seems on the surface, worth the effort to relearn. The more I get into it however, the more advanced functionality I find has been either moved stripped away. If it dosn't do the job, all the graphics in the world will not make a difference.
