Chapter 45. Digital Photography > Working with Photos from XP

Working with Photos from XP

As you may recall from Chapter 27, Windows XP's special My Pictures folder has special attributes, such as showing you thumbnail images of your photos directly within the folder. Also within the folder, without having to load any special software, you can do other things with the photos, including renaming, deleting, and printing them.

The photo tools built into XP are actually quite useful. In fact, without having to launch any special software you can rotate pictures 90 degrees to the left or right and increase or decrease the image preview size. You can't use XP's built-in tools to do any serious editing like adjusting for imperfect lighting or getting rid of red-eye. Other features included in most photo-editing programs include cropping (cutting out the portions of a photo you don't want) and the “cloning tool,” which lets you remove blemishes and other material by painting over them in such a way that you can't tell they were removed.
