Live Photo Gallery Issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • 1. im using windows 8, every time I use the fix tool it destroys/distorts/decolourises the photo 80% of the time (i can control-z and its fine again, just not possible to edit properly) very frustrating! any ideas? (note: I have already tried reinstalling)

    2. I NEED the fix button at the top when I open my photo. first time. I dont want to click 'edit organise or share'  then wait for hundereds of photos to load and then find the photo I just opened again and wait for the photo to load again and then start editing. PLEASE! there must be some way to get the old fix button on the first screen back or some way to have the fix options there when it opens. I used to open and photo and edit, now I open a photo, click through a few buttons and after a good minuite or two I can edit.

    I think I would go as far as to say that the 2nd point is a bigger issue than the first. the first I can deal with, at least it works the way I want 20% of the time!!!

  • Ok, Done that (had to list under photo viewer as photo gallery was not an option)

  • And to add to this.. why o why am I forced to import pictures from my USB stick before I can edit or view them in this program?!

    This is insane! Picasa will have to be my default photo software as live photo gallery is broken in many ways! I hope it is fixed soon because I am going to miss it. picasa dosnt really give enough flexibility when editing for what I need.
