Microsoft Office Picture Manager is not included in Office 2013. This comes as a shock to users upgrading from earlier versions of Office, such as 2007 and 2010, where Picture Manager was included as a standard application. This article explains how to install it alongside Office 2013 — at no cost!

I recently installed Microsoft Office 2013 on a new computer and was disappointed to discover that Microsoft Office Picture Manager is not included in Office 2013. This article explains how to correct this serious omission by the folks in Redmond and install (for free!) Microsoft Office Picture Manager 2010, which plays nicely with Office 2013.


It may be possible to install Picture Manager from the media of your prior Office version, such as 2007 or 2010. But you'll need to look at the license agreement to determine if that is in compliance. Since there are several Office versions that contain Picture Manager and numerous Micosoft license agreements, I cannot give any advice on the legality of this approach — you must check your particular license agreement. That said, this article discusses a different approach that is definitely in license compliance.


As it turns out, Picture Manager is a component of SharePoint Designer 2010, which is available as a free download at the Microsoft site:


32-bit

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=16573


64-bit

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=24309


The 32-bit/64-bit distinction refers to the bit-level of your Office applications, not the bit-level of your Windows.


Note that Picture Manager is not a component of SharePoint Designer 2013. Furthermore, Microsoft announced at the Ignite 2015 conference that there will not be a SharePoint Designer 2016, i.e., SharePoint Designer 2013 is the final release of that product. This means that SharePoint Designer 2010 is the last version to contain Picture Manager.


On the license compliance issue, the key term in the SharePoint Designer 2010 license agreement is this:

1. INSTALLATION AND USE RIGHTS. You may install and use any number of copies of the software on your devices.

There are, of course, other terms, and you should read them carefully (the entire license agreement, via a copy/paste from the installation dialog, is attached to this article). But upon accepting the license agreement, your installation of Picture Manager will be in license compliance.


After downloading the correct version for your Office installation (32-bit or 64-bit), run the SharePoint Designer 2010 setup program. If you downloaded the wrong version, you will see something like this Setup Error dialog:


Wrong-Version.jpg

With the right version, you will get this (all of the subsequent screenshots in this article are from a W7/64-bit system using the SharePoint Designer 2010 64-bit install):


Customize install

Click on the Customize installation button. Then in the Installation Options tab, click the drop-down arrow in all three main areas under Microsoft Office and select Not Available:


Not-Available.jpg

After doing that in all three areas (Microsoft SharePoint Designer, Office Shared Features, Office Tools), you will have this:


Deselect everything

Expand Office Tools by clicking the plus sign and you will see the Microsoft Office Picture Manager. This is the one-and-only component that needs to be installed from the SharePoint Designer 2010 setup. Click the drop-down arrow of Microsoft Office Picture Manager and select Run from My Computer. The red X will disappear and it will look like this:


Select Picture Manager

Click the Install Now button. You should then see this installation completed dialog:


Installation completed

Now check your program groups and you will find a new Microsoft Office group next to your Microsoft Office 2013 group:



Office program group

The new Microsoft Office group has a shortcut to Microsoft Office Picture Manager, which works perfectly alongside your Office 2013 applications:

Enjoy having Picture Manager back again!

There could be numerous financial implications to MS. One possibility is a cost for its distribution, such as royalty payments. It depends on the source of the software. If it's not 100% MS-developed code, there could be an OEM agreement associated with its distribution. For example, if you look at the Help>About in Picture Manager 2010, you will see numerous references to third-parties, including Impressa Systems and DataViz. There are surely a lot more users of MS Office than SharePoint, so even offering it for free in the SharePoint Designer download may wind up costing them less money than including it in the non-free MS Office.

Another possible financial implication is simply getting customers into the modern MS ecosystem, such as Photo Gallery in W7 or the Photos app in W8, and SkyDrive for both. Picture Manager is old-hat. :)

At the MS Office Forum website, someone asked, "What replaces office picture manager in office 2013?" (Too bad the person didn't see this article.) A Microsoft employee responded with, "You are correct that Office Picture Manager was removed from the suite. Inside programs such as PowerPoint and Word there are still editing tools. You also have Windows Live Photo Gallery which I feel is a much more program specific picture editing tool. Hopefully the small change does not effect your trial of the Next Microsoft Office. Thanks for Posting!"

Interesting comment. Regards, Joe

"you will see numerous references to third-parties, including Impressa Systems and DataViz."
Good point!
I didn't notice that, but as I think about a giant company like Microsoft which you can't even count the zeros of it's income value (!!!) paying those little third parties is nothing!
Anyway they are so greedy to take away a little handy tool from people.

"You also have Windows Live Photo Gallery which I feel is a much more program specific picture editing tool."
I personally prefer not to download and use those live crap tools haha
I prefer a bundled and simple tool like pic manager...
but that's the way world works nowadays ...

I have installed it as per your instructions and it works, however the rub is that you can't choose a group of pictures within Picture Manager, right click them and choose Send To Microsoft Office. If you do not have Office 2010 apps installed then you are S.O.L

Thanks!

Hi Schitzngiggles,
I've never used Send To Microsoft Office. What does it do? Does it vary by which product you Send To? For example, if I select five photos in Picture Manager and send them to Word, what does Word do with those five photos? How about Excel, Outlook, and PowerPoint? Regards, Joe

Schitzngiggles' problem may be that he hasn't setup OIS.EXE (Office Picture Manager) as the default program for his images. Go to Control Panel>(Programs>)Default Programs>Associate a file type ... Then, go down the list, find all the image extensions you want to be opened in Office Picture Manager and change them to same. I did this for JPE, JPEG, JPG and PNG. (By the way, after you change each one the list will read that the extension will open in Microsoft Office 2010. Well, OK.) Then in Win Explorer, just double-click on a JPG (etc.) file and it'll open in good ole Office Picture Manager.

And thanks a million, Joe, for this solution. I was getting sick of the not-nearly-as-good Windows Image Viewer on my new Win7 laptop.

Hi Kit,

You're welcome — I'm glad it works for you. And thanks to you for the "upvote" on my article — much appreciated!

I think the issue with Schitzngiggles is different from what you're suggesting. It's not that double-clicking doesn't open the file in Picture Manager. He's talking about the Send To option inside Picture Manager, which may be invoked by either the File menu and then the Send To item, or a right-click on a thumbnail and then Send To:

Send To in Picture Manager
He said "that you can't choose a group of pictures within Picture Manager, right click them and choose Send To Microsoft Office." In fact, it doesn't even work on a single picture (has nothing to do with choosing a group of pictures). If you try to invoke Send To, you get this:

Send To MS Office fails
It seems that the Send To function requires some common code from Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, or Word in order to run. But since Office 2013 is installed, not 2010, Send To is not finding what it needs. I never use Send To, so did not notice the issue until Schitzngiggles posted it. So far it's the only aspect of Picture Manager 2010 (that I know of) that doesn't work with Office 2013. But I'm in the same boat as you, as I suspect many others are, in that I simply want Picture Manager as my default viewer for several image file types (as you explained for JPG, JPEG, PNG, etc.). In that respect, Picture Manager 2010 works great with Office 2013.

Regards, Joe

Oops. Missed the phrase "within Picture Manager." Sorry, Schitzngiggles. In all the years I've used PM, I have never seen or felt the need for that functionality. I've now experimented with it on my desktop with Office 2010 and I still would rather "Insert" from whatever I'm working on (like Word or Outlook or even non-Office apps) than do it using the "Send" method. But I have to say, I DO like your username!

Same here!

Same here, again!

But, as the old idiom goes, different strokes for different folks.

Joe,
 Yes you are correct. We have several people that need to process bulk images and get them into PowerPoint ASAP so that other users can create their presentations for clients. I do agree that the insert from file is the best practice when creating presentations, but not for bulk processing. For this purpose it has been a major help and time saver.
 No need to be sorry Kit, we have a unique situation that the bulk send to PowerPoint is useful. Thanks, always like this username myself.
 Joe thanks for your help here, I  still find picture manager to be a great app, but just disappointing that MS took away this functionality.

Hi Schitzngiggles,

You're welcome — happy to help.

To insert images in bulk into PowerPoint 2013, you can select as many as you want in the Insert Picture dialog using the standard Windows methods, such as the Ctrl key to select specific ones and the Shift key to select a range of them. For example, here's the dialog in PowerPoint 2013 where I selected all the images in a folder for inserting:

Insert Picture many images
Seems that it's just as much of a time saver doing it this way as a group select in Send To. That said, I agree with you — very disappointing that MS removed PM from Office 2013. Regards, Joe

Joe, thanks for the tips, does enabling or installing Picture Manager can have some impact on the Office licensing ?

assuming we have 500 users and 500 Office 2013 licenses already that was upgraded from Office 2010.

Thanks.

You're welcome, ITSystemEngineer. I'm not an expert in the nuances of Microsoft licensing, and I'm not an attorney, but this one seems straightforward to me, based on this language (verbatim) in the SharePoint Designer 2010 license agreement:
1. INSTALLATION AND USE RIGHTS. You may install and use any number of copies of the software on your devices.
That said, with 500 users and 500 licenses, you don't want to make a mistake on the licensing front, so I recommend reading the entire license agreement carefully (it is attached to this article and displayed during installation) and soliciting the opinion of your legal department. But it seems to me that "You may install and use any number of copies of the software on your devices" is quite clear. Regards, Joe

Thank you for your very clear tutorial! Good to have Picture Manager back again! Kaspersky told me to uninstall Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2010 because my computer didn't use it since July.  But when inadvertently I folllowed their advice and uninstalled it, I lost Microsof Picture Manager too -- although I use this application everyday. So Kaspersky is telling people that their Microsoft SharePoint Designer is not used although its component Picture Manager is used everyday!

You absolutely rock, you silver-haired star! I am an Eldernerd, and I truly depended on the Microsoft Office Picture Manager for still and video editing.  Things have been tough since it disappeared. It was easy to use, and did enough for my needs. It is now back pinned securely to my taskbar! And now I will be able to confidently edit the video in my Power Point project, submit the final work, and end another semester of grad school!

Thank you for your wisdom, service, and kindness!

-- Jo

Thanks a lot, pal. I was also upset when I discovered that there was no Picture Manager in the Office 2013. I was using it for so many years and couldn't bear its sudden absence. Now, this solves my problem. Thank you again and good day!

Joe, is there a work around to add picture manager to office 365? We just migrated to 365 at work and lost picture manager. I downloaded sharepoint designer 10 but the prompt asks to add a sharepoint site, and it asks me to link to sharepoint foundation. I downloaded sharepoint designer 13 just to check and it worked as described except picture manager is not included in office tools. any suggestions?

Hi Adam,
Thanks for joining Experts Exchange today and reading my article — welcome aboard!

I haven't tried this method at a SharePoint site, but I would think that if you deselect all the features except Picture Manager, then it should not prompt to add a SharePoint site. I can tell you that the method works fine in Office 2016/365, as discussed in my other EE article on it:

How to Install Microsoft Office Picture Manager in Office 2016/Office 365

I've installed it on numerous systems with Office 2016/365 without any problems, although, as I said earlier, none of them had SharePoint.

Regarding your comment about SharePoint Designer 2013 not having Picture Manager, it is even worse than that — there will not be a SharePoint Designer 2016, so SharePoint Designer 2010 is very likely to remain the only way to get Picture Manager. Check out the comment at my Office 2016/365 article:
Note that Picture Manager is not a component of SharePoint Designer 2013. Furthermore, Microsoft announced at the Ignite 2015 conference that there will not be a SharePoint Designer 2016, i.e., SharePoint Designer 2013 is the final release of that product. This means that SharePoint Designer 2010 is the last version to contain Picture Manager.
Please let me know how it goes when you try to install again. Regards, Joe

Hello again Joe, would I be able to ask you a question about a different problem I've had since the upgrade?  I'm also having a problem with my printer properties/device settings.  I've lost all my options like choose paper tray, print double sided, etc.  A couple of the commands are there but there's not much to choose from compared to what I had before...plus our old instructions for adding them don't seem to apply.  If I'm not making sense...no worries...we'll figure it out eventually.  

The printer is a Canon iR-ADV 4025/4035 Class Driver.  

Thank you,
Barbara

Hi Barbara,
Since you're new to Experts Exchange, you're probably not aware of the all the fantastic resources here to help you with problems — any kind of problem! I have absolutely no doubt that the experts here at EE can help you to fix your printer problem, but this article is not the right venue for posting the question. The comments at an article or video are intended just for that article or video. But to get help with a problem unrelated to that article or video, you simply ask your question by clicking the big, white-on-blue Ask a Question button at the top of every page. Fill in the form, click the Submit button, and I'm confident that you'll be pleased with the response. Regards, Joe
