Windows 7: Copy all tags from one photo to another

Copy all tags from one photo to another

If you select two photos and tag them at the same time in Windows Photo Gallery, great! But if you find a similar photo later, you may want a way to copy all tags from one photo to another. After a long and fruitless search online, I finally found a way.

In Windows Photo Gallery, Folder view:

1. Right click a photo icon and select "Properties"
2. Click on the "Details" tab.
3. Across from tab (and right below "Values") hover or click until you see "add a tag." (Oddly, if the photo has no tags, the space is totally blank. No box appears until you hover or click).
4. When the box appears, click to place your cursor, then right click to "select all."
5. "Copy" and close the box.
6. Follow the same path to get to the next photo and "paste" the tags into its box.

Maybe this is a no-brainer, but it sure has been helpful to me in tagging similar photos without re-entering each descriptive tag manually. If anyone has a simpler way, even in another program, please let me know. (I tried it in Windows photo viewer' properties pane, but it kept saying "file error")

Tagging 7,000+ photos & need all the help I can get!

How do I delete a photo from an album?

If somebody sends me a photo album but I do not want all of them, how can delete indivdual photos?

Hi Becksync. I'm also in the process of tagging and organising my photos .

I use Zoner Photo Studio. You can bulk tag photos very easily (see screenshot). You can also alter the time taken, GPS tag and do basic photo editing (colour, contrast, sharpness etc etc). Once tagged, you can filter / search for photos with quite extended search criteria. Zoner is a great program (and free!)
The batch edit function is good too (example - add the same GPS coordinates to 10 photos at the same time, or rotate photos to portrait orientation)

Give it a try!

This has nothing to do with the original poster's question. Start your own thread, and don't try to hijack somebody else's. People might try and help you then.

I thought I had started a new thread; this is the first time I have ever accessed a forum of any kind and apologise for my inexperience. Thanks to you, it will be the last. I have always understood that these forums were to help people, not shoot them down. Thank you so much for your understanding; I hope you are never 'new' at something and get this reaction.

Photo Fuse in Photo Gallery stopped working
I've used Photo Fuse a few time but now when I try to use it, it thinks for a few seconds then either shuts down Windows Live Photo Gallery or restarts it. I've tried upgrading from 2011 to 2012 but this has not solved the problem. Can anyone help?

Photo Tags showing only in Library and not in the original folder
I was under the impression that an entry in the Photo library was a "pointer" to the original file in its folder. Why then does a tag added in the "Pictures library" not show in the file in its original folder. I thought that the advantage of tagging was that the tag went with the photo when...
