That it's a truly awful program. There's far better photo managers and viewers out there (Adobe Bridge, Acdsee, Bibble, etc)
Well the WL Photo Gallery 2008 is quite nice and it looks exactly like Windows Vista Explorer which has the blue strip on the top. And it also looks like Windows Vista Photo Gallery. Even more so than what WL Photo Gallery 2009 does.
Well I think the photo Gallery is all right to use. And you could just keep the WL Photo Gallery 2008 and maybe WL Mail 2008. And WL writer 2008 if you use WL writer,which I don't.
But if you are going to use the Messenger I would use WL Messenger 2009 the latest version. Because WL Messenger 8.5 is no longer supported. But then if you install WL Messenger 2009,it will also upgrade WL Photo Gallery 2008 and the other WLE 2008 to WLE2009 version.
But that's better than WLE 2011 version. Any version is. Andrea Borman.
