Tag and Rate Photos in windows 10?

Post by coffeehubcap » Wed Mar 15, 2017 11:02 am

Just moved to win10. No win Photo Gallery available.
Any suggestions for an application that supports people tags and ratings?

Right click on your photo and then click on "Open with", and then click on "Windows Photo Viewer". You will then have numerous places to enter photo information, including a field called "tags".

You can enter info one photo at a time or many photos at a time.

What I really want is the ability to see all my tagged and rated photos on the screen. Select all 5 star photos etc.

Try Google Picasa, now called Google Photos.

The program or App is excellent and also provides free unlimited online backup if your photos are under 16MP.

Coffeehubcap:

You can use the method I mentioned above. I don't use "star" ratings, but I work with over 100,000 photos. I just went in and marked two of my photos with five stars in the "Tags" field. When I did a search for photos with five stars, those two photos popped up immediately.

I have been using "Windows Photo Viewer" since Vista. I am now running Windows 10, and it works great!

+1 , DW and I moved all our iPhone pics/videos to Google Photos mainly to save memory , iPhone pics automatically get sent over to Google , we just have to remember to delete them from the iPhones once in awhile .
