In the below article we have shown you the steps to install the Windows Photo Gallery on Windows 10. But before we start, let us discuss what is Windows photo gallery.
Step 1: Firstly, open the Windows Essentials download page and then download Windows Essentials.
Step 2: Next, run the wlsetup-web file (which you downloaded in the first step) and wait for the process to prepare itself.
Step 3: In the next screen, click on the “Choose the programs you want to install”.
Step 4: Now choose Photo Gallery and Movie Maker and then Click on the Install button to start the installation. Wait until the installation process is completed.
Step 5: As soon as the setup process is completed, hit the “close” button.
Windows photo gallery is a photo editing app and Image enhancer. Previously, it was designed for a Windows Picture and Fax Viewer. The software’s first version was included in Windows Vista.
The first version was developed in December 2001 as a Photo Library and it was released under the Digital Image Suite 9 on June 3, 2003. The last Photo Library branded software was released on April 22, 2005.
After a while, it turned into a Windows photo gallery with all the earlier versions of Windows Vista. In the same year, Microsoft changed the application’s name to Windows live photo gallery and the very first version of this software was released in 2007. There have been a lot of changes made to this application since then.
The changes include image stitching, facial recognition, tagging, organizing photos by adding titles, captions, metatags, and XMP metadata standard that helps you to categorize your pictures accordingly. Apart from that, the features such as basic photo editing (crop, resize, filter, adjust shades etc.) and batch resizing of photos (resize multiple photos at once).
Next, double click on the photo gallery shortcut from the desktop. The moment it will open, you will see an error message saying “Photo Gallery requires Microsoft SQL server 2005 compact edition in order to run”. Once you download it, the application will start running immediately.
Again as soon as you start the application the screen will display a list of thumbnails from your Pictures folder, yet you can add any other folder to Photo Gallery with ease.
To add the tags, geotags, captions, and metatags, you will have to double click on the thumbnail to view the image.
Apart from that, you can also choose between several colour and exposure presets and you can also alter all of these options manually. In addition to that, you can also opt for colour correction options by clicking on the options displayed on the top of the screen. And once you are done with all the changes, you can save the edited image as a copy and let the original image stay as it is.
We hope the above article helped you to install the Windows Photo Gallery on Windows 10.
