How can I get Microsoft Office Picture Manager on a Windows XP Media Center Edition 2004 PC.  The PC didn't come with it.  I couldn't find it for download from Microsoft but other sites did claim to have it.  I'm looking for a safe site that will give me the complete package.

Do you own, or did your computer come with Office on it?  This is an install that comes with Office 2003, which replaced MS Photo Editor in earlier versions.   I have never seen it as a separate download.  If you are looking for a picture editor that is free, there are many out there, including Picasa from Google.

Thanks for the info.  The PC came with a different photo editor (not Photo Editor) that I don't like.  I see some sites offer Picture Manager for download but I'm not sure that I can trust them.  If nothing else, I'll give Picasa a try.  Do all functions work if you don't use Web sharing because I need that.

No problem.  and I would not trust most of these download sites either!  In fact, I would just put it up on my website for you to download, but it is against the EULA for me to do so....

Regarding your question:   "Do all functions work if you don't use Web sharing because I need that."

Are you saying that you NEED web sharing functionality?  If so, then Picassa does have this capability to upload to Picassa shared services..

Sorry.  I meant that I don't need web sharing.

Yes, in the company I work for, we have sales people that take pics and want to send them out to customers.  Some used Photo Editor, but others did not have it installed on their systems.  Rather than purchase Editing software, or install their camera software, I usually install Picassa, and I have yet to have one person tell me that it was not working for them.

Picassa is mainly an editor, but it is versatile.  It indexes your graphics files, and allows you to manage them too.

I tried it a little.  It seems to organize the pictures by the picture time stamp.  I would rather have it use the file structure that I've set up.  In other words, I would like it to show the files like they appear in Windows Explorer.  Is that possible?

Yes....  :)

View > Folder View > Tree View

Because Picassa  basically indexes the pics, it usually gets the folders right..   USUALLY!  :)

Works great.  One last question:
 
Is there any way to show two pictures side by side in a larger view then the preview mode?

Think you got me there!  But, if you want to compare photos, I suppose you could use the Collage feature..  that would put them side by side..  it has some nice expansion / rotation features too...

And remember..  if you want to share pictures via the web, you just need to create an account for uploading..  My mother (82 years old) actually loves this feature...
