If you've been using Picassa:
If you're using Windows 7 or 8 you may want to install Microsoft Windows Photo Gallery - part of Windows Essentials 2012. (It
works with Windows 10 as well, though you don't need it). Microsoft
stopped supporting Windows Essentials 2012 in January 2017 - but if you
download, unzip, and run this small installer file you can still (as of Feb 4 2017) install the Windows Essentials 2012 app-set. Note that by default it will install a bunch of 'Windows Essentals apps' - pay attention and pick the ones you want!
Update - late
March 2017 - while the small installer file for Windows Essentials 2012
downloads and starts to run without problem, it no longer seems to be
able to successfully go on to install the Windows Essentials programs -
I've tried on both Windows 10 and Windows 7 systems. If anyone has any
success with this - or knows another way to install the Windows
Essentials components, please let me know!
If you're using Windows 10, you already have a good Photos app - no downloads needed
