Windows 7: MS Photo Editor

Anyone have a solution to right-clicking on an image file and choosing "open with ms photo editor" only to find it opens with Windows Photo Viewer? Probably a missed Registry change or something, but I can't find it.

I am very grateful to the guys who made this work well! At last I have my favorite photo editor working again - and better than ever! Yeehaw!

I would try to find a topic on pixels and maybe you might find your answer. I am certainly not a professional pc user, but I do alot of research on forums. I love Ms photo editor, but I am also looking for another photo editor where I can combine two pics together where it looks flawless. Still researching on this.

I hope you find the answer you seek!
Lilly70, I know it has been some time since this was active, but I use Photoshop and there is a picture merge or create panorama feature which does a seamless image combine function.

I also stumbled onto this with a Google search, Free Panoramic Photo Stitching Software - PanoramaPlus Starter Edition from Serif

I ran into that as well but I now just open the app from the Start menu and navigate to files from within the app. Perhaps not so convenient for a power user but I just use it once in awhile. Sorry can't help you other than to confirm I ran into the same thing.

Thank you DStealth! I installed your 64 bit link. However, when cropping, on my Win XP box I was able to drag handles to crop. This version brings up a dialog I must enter some amount of the picture to crop in distance units. Any thoughts?

Update: I figured it out. Have to use the "Select" tool and that will set the desired crop dimensions.

Twain errors with MS Photo Editor

Installed MS Photo Editor in Windows 8.1 Pro 64.
Works fine except for trying to scan from it.
Get these TWAIN errors:
1. First Error

2. Second Error


Second error happens after you close first error and then
hit the scan button again.
Does anyone have a Scanner / Twain working in MS Photo Editor?
Or any troubleshooting routine for this?
Thanks.

It works beautifully on Windows 10 64bit. Thanks DStealth!

FYI: Since the day I installed it, I have been getting Windows Update failures for Office XP Service Pack 3 (Error 0x80096004).

I have never had XP or Office XP on this new PC (just W10 and Office 365), so I suspect it's probably due to installing this Photo Editor. When I look in Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features, the Publisher for Photo Editor shows up as "Micro$oft XP".

It's a minor annoyance that doesn't effect Photo Editor or anything else on my PC, and is trivial compared to the benefit (and joy) I get from being able to use Photo Editor again.

Thanks.

No. It says the version of TWAIN is not supported, as "Photo Editor has detected an older version of TWAIN", and asks for Photo Editor to be reinstalled.

OK - You're getting same error that I get.
We'll have to pray to the TWAIN gods for a resolution!

Windows Photo Editor Problem
Hello! I've been editing photos with Windows Photo Editor for a long time. I open a photo in Windows Photo Gallery and then, at the top, on the right, I click on the " Edit, Organize, or Share " tab and my opened photo, along with the rest of the photos in the folder would load up in the editor....
