captions not displaying
I've created a group of pictures with captions within photo gallery. Burned
them to CD, but when my friend tries to open them on her computer, no
captions are displayed? Is there a compatibility issue? Is the metadata
with the pictures, but the other person needs vista on their computer for
this to work?

Thanks,
PBaker

===============================
The captions you are referring to may be
stored in your Pictures.pd4 database and
not in the actual image files.

As you may read in the following article,
if at all possible, all metadata will be written
back to the image files.

Metadata and the Windows
Vista Photo Gallery
http://tinyurl.com/3994ha

Metadata that cannot be written back to the
image files will be written to the Photo Gallery
database. This database is named "Pictures.pd4"
and is found at the following location.

C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\
Windows Photo Gallery\Pictures.pd4

The file can also be found with an Advanced
Search for pd4.

Go to...Start / Search / Advanced Search.

Check the box..."Include non-indexed, hidden,
and system files" Enter pd4 in the Name field
and left click the Search button.

If you catalog lots of images, making regular
backup copies of your Pictures.pd4 file would
be an excellent idea.

If corruption develops, just replace the current
..pd4 file with your backup. If you have to restore
your system or move the images to a different
computer...the original locations of the images
would need to be duplicated.
