Photo Gallery is no longer available
Last month saw the end of the support and availability of Microsoft Photo Gallery. This was one of Microsoft’s fines products. It provided photo enthusiasts an easy to use, yet most versatile, tool for importing, managing, enhancing, editing, transforming, their pictures, and much more.
Orphaned five years ago, this image manager-editor remained a state-of-the-art tool. Only professional grade editors can do more to this day. The ease of use is unsurpassed.
Until last month Microsoft allowed Photo Gallery to be downloaded from their site. This has now been discontinued.
One of the nice features in Photo Gallery was the ease of selecting photos to be processed by other tools and launching those tools from right inside Photo Gallery. One of those tools is the outstanding Image Composite Editor by Microsoft Research. This panorama stitching editor is still available.
If you still have Photo Gallery installed – it works beautifully in Windows 10 and prior versions – you can continue to use it. I will. Treasure it – it is still tops.
