Tagging Photos After Import in Windows Live Photo Gallery

You can create two types of tags with Windows Live Photo Gallery: people tags and descriptive tags. Use People tags for tagging people, and Descriptive tags for everything else.

  • To create a new tag (see Figure 7) click the appropriate Add a New Tag button and enter the name of the tag. Repeat with additional tags as needed.

  • To apply a tag to a photo, drag the photo to the tag and release it.
  • To apply a tag to a group of photos, select the photos with Shift-Click or Control-Click, drag the group to a tag, and release the group (Figure 8).
