I’ve been blogging about the new features in Windows Live Photo Gallery 2011 such as Photo Fuse and facial recognition for quickly tagging people in your photos over the last couple months. You can download the new Photo Gallery, which is part of Windows Live Essentials 2011, by clicking here. Photo Gallery makes it simple and easy for you to organize, edit, and share pictures. And we are continuously working on finding new ways to make your photo experience even more fun. With that in mind, we are partnering with Eye-Fi to provide an automatic and wireless way for you to import pictures from your camera into Windows Live Photo Gallery.
A special Eye-Fi SDHC memory card that fits in your camera just like any regular SDHC memory card that has built-in Wi-Fi that connects to your wireless network at home to effortlessly transfer photos and videos to your PC. When you open Photo Gallery, the photos that were automatically wirelessly synced from your camera using Eye-Fi should appear! It also (WPS) geotags your photos with the location they are taken at which can be seen in Photo Gallery as well. Eye-Fi also has a special mode, called “Endless Memory”, where your Eye-Fi card will automatically free up space once your photos and videos have been safely delivered.
To celebrate how easy it is to manage photos you sync to your PC with Windows Live Photo Gallery, Eye-Fi is putting on a contest where you can enter to win 1 or 10 5 Eye-Fi cards! Click here to read about the contest from Eye-Fi’s blog and you can enter the contest here on their Facebook page.
You can buy an Eye-Fi card today online or at retail stores.
I understand it will transfer files to your computer. Will Eye-fi also have the option of uploading photos directly to Live Photos as it does with other online services?
Too bad - I'm not on facebook so I can't enter the contest. BTW, the text says you can enter the contest here or on facebook, the rules only says facebook. Might want to update the text above...
@JohnCz - I am not sure if it supports uploading directly to Windows Live. It syncs to your PC and via Photo Gallery you can upload to Windows Live, Flickr, Facebook, etc.
@gsyoungblood - thanks for the feedback. We're directing people to the Facebook page to enter the contest for that very reason but we'll look at updating the above blog text.
I just bought one of these and was very disappointed that it's "geo-tagging" is wifi only. Where I normally shoot pictures is out of range of any possible wifi hot spots. The automatice upload (I never upload to a service because without editing, refining first) to my computer's picture library but the wifi only geo-tagging and only 8GB storage had me tossing this product into the bin of broken toys.
@jkavanagh58 - only 8GB storage? I mean i take a heck of a lot of photos and find that to be plenty for places I go so you must take a heck of a lot of photos or super huge photos. Since you always edit before upload, if you use Photo Gallery you can always add the location of the image in Photo Gallery before uploading to a service.
