Adding additional picture locations to Windows 8 Picture App

By default the Picture App in Windows 8 will include pictures from your SkyDrive, Facebook, Flicker as well as the Picture Library from your local computer.

My requirement was that, since all my Photos are saved in another drive which is not the system drive (like most of us), I was looking for a way to include all my photos to appear in the Picture App without moving the photos to the Picture Library.

This is how you would do,

  • Browse to the folder you have stored all your pictures
  • Right Click on top of the folder
  • Include in library => Pictures

That’s about it. Now when you open your Windows Picture App you will be able to see all the pictures from this location under the Pictures Library album
