  1. Window 10 Photo App: Why not:-


    Why not:-

    1. export/make available the fundamental Information about the handled photos as a simple SQLite database. I.e. for each photo: path, name, inherent tagging information e.g. Exif, dog, house,..., user provided tagging information You already have the info in a somewhat complicated SQLite DB file, so why not make it useful!
    2. when offering a group of pictures that Photos believes to have a common item for tagging, offer the user the ability to tag a subset of them as say PersonA, and then offer the ability to tag a different subset as PersonB. Currently I have ~96 Contact groups, some where Photo App say 100 pictures of babies belong together, but in reality consist of multiple babies. It should be possible to assign different tags within the photo group.
    3. where, for whatever reason, Photo App can not handle a folder, then gather these folder names in to a single App page so that we can see them without having to navigate through the Folder structure. I have > 1000 folder in my Photo App.
    4. if a folder is awaiting processing then include something to show that, currently I can not tell if Phot App has tried to process the pictures and rejected a folder, or not tried yet. Same goes for the tagging state/process on a fodler.
    5. when adding new Folders to Photo App, support Drag and Drop of paths from say Explorer.
    6. offer the ability to force Photo to apply facial recognition / tagging to a specific folder/folder-group. CUrrently it is not possible to see if Photos has tried to tag a given folder.


    On a slightly different issue: I want to download the English Photo App, but live in Germany. My PC has EN as the language of choice, but will the App Store offer me a EN version, no. Why not.


    In general: Photo App: a powerful tool. But unbelievably user unfriendly.

    :)
