Windows 7: Photos - Libraries and folders

27 Feb 2010   #1

Windows 7
Photos - Libraries and folders

I have a library called "My Pictures". In that Library I have some pictures not associated with any specific folder. I have other pictures in the library under folders such as Ancestors, House, Yard, etc. I want to be able to put all the pictures in various folders and be able to view them all when I click on "My Pictures". Is this possible and if so, how.

1. Arrange Your Picture Folder : Make a folder named "my pictures" and under it make sub folders categorically.
2. Download ObjectDock 1.9 Build 543 - Allows you to have a nice animated launchbar/taskbar on your screen that reacts to your mouse when you mouse - Softpedia
Download Stack Docklet For ObjectDock by ~arshi2009 on deviantART
3. Install objectdock. Unpack stack docklet, copy items, go to c:\program files\stardock\objectdock\docklets,
paste those here, and run the registry entry.
4. Run objectdock, add a stack docklet, link it to your my picture folder
5. Click on the stack docklet on objectdock, tou will see all the folders stacked.

If you want tour images to stack, adjust the process accordingly.

This is the purpose of the library function

To set up the library

Right click on the library folder and click on properties

This will open a dialogue that allows you to add folders into the library

If you have an existing tree of picture folders you can simply add the top level folder to the library or if you have lots of folders spread around the disk(s) you can all the folders individually.

Once the library is set-up to your liking it is a simple thing to use the right click option inside the library, (right click the white space ), to view and arrange the images by various criteria
