[ad]Dear Computer Lady,
I hope you can help me. I have many photos loaded on my computer.
My husband died in December 2012, and I would like to gather the photos of him, all together in one folder, and then send them to a service and have a book made.
Is there an easy way to find all of them? I am running Windows 7. Most of the pictures are not tagged with his name. Also once I find them, can I just drag them into a new folder?
There is no easy way that I am aware of to automatically find pictures that contain an individual person. Instead, you will have to look through the pictures yourself.
As you are going through the photos though, you can simply drag the ones you want to a new folder.
The easiest way to do this is to open two folders side by side. One folder will have your photos in it, the other will be the new folder you want to move the pictures of your husband to.
It’s Your Turn: What do you think?
