finding photos help

by blondee028 / June 16, 2013 5:14 AM PDT

I am using windows Vista home edition 64 bit.
Say for instance I am putting a ad in and it says browse photos. I go on pictures and windows gallery is not a option. When you click on pictures it just shows my folders and my photo stream ( for my iphone photos) I also use picasa and that's not a option either. So I have to save every picture to my desktop in order to locate them and that is very very time consuming. Can anyone help me?

Clarification Request
Please explain "putting an ad in"

I don't know what you mean by "putting an ad in", but in almost any Windows application I've ever seen, when you do a Save As you get a standard window that lets you select the folder to put a file in and a name for the file. If you're saving something from a camera, it will default to some folder usually one it creates inside the Pictures folder, but you can usually change that. The exact details depend on what you're saving from and what software you're using which is why I'm asking for clarification. To give specifics, you'll need to provide those details.

The pictures have to be in a Windows folder

If you have pictures in Picasa, it has its own filing system, so if you want to use one of those in an Ebay ad, you'll need to copy it to a folder like your pictures folder. If you're using Windows Live Photo Gallery, it goes to pictures that're usually in your Pictures folder but don't have to be. It can navigate to any Windows folder on your computer, but again if they're in Picasa, you'll need to copy them into a Windows folder. This is why I greatly prefer Windows Live Photo Gallery over so called photo managers like Picasa. It will run just fine under Vista if that's not what you currently have.
Good luck.
